My daughter in law took my sister, her best friend and myself to Barbara's to celebrate our birthdays in July. There were ten of us in our party which included my granddaughters and my daughter in law's best friend's daughters. It was wonderful. The owner served us and was very welcoming. She brought out birthday candles and led everyone on our group by singing Happy Birthday. The food was very nicely presented and was delicious. I would recommend this tea house to anyone who is visiting southern California.
