    This tearoom is fabulous! The best in Los Angeles! I went with 3 girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. On walking in we were so pleased with the decore, absolutely beautiful, very eurooean. We were greeted by a lovely man who welcomed us and took us to our table. The table setting was beautiful, with English china, silver spoons, linens and beautiful fresh spring flowers. The waitress, Lex came over and explained the menu that is very large, and explained all the different 3, 4 or 7 course tea services and the salads and crepes. The man who greeted us came back and explained all the teas in detail, we found he is a retired Doctor and engaged to the owner. We placed our food order and selected our teas. We each had our own tea and the teas were piping hot. One of my friends ordered the chicken salad as she has diet problems; the presentation of the salad was the best I have ever seen, with fresh fruits and all and we all tasted the chicken, it is sooo good!…. The finger sandwiches arrived and were perfect, fresh, tasty and even fresh flowers decorated the plates, we also had some of the sandwiches placed on our plate by silver tongs. Next came the scones, just out of the oven which were so yummy, we voted them the best we have ever tasted. They have a jam cart and you get to select what you would like. The sweets came last, oh my, little jam and fruit tarts, dark chocolate cups with fresh strawberries and cream, cream puffs and magnificent lemon tart. We had oodles of food, we all took leftovers home (can you believe leftovers at a Tea house??) The background music is perfect for Tea. No one rushed us, we had unlimited tea and were even invited to taste some of the more unusual teas they carry, we were made to feel we were dining in someone’s home. The owner came out, she is the chef, very charming and made us feel even more welcome, and did I mention, I was given a birthday gift, a beautiful piece of jewelry! Never have we had such a lovely tea experience anywhere. I highly recommend this establishment, don’t be put off by the outside, it’s an absolute gem once you walk in.
