My sister and I have been to this tea room 4 times now, Firstly we were invited to a baby shower there and were so impressed with both the service and the food we decided to come back on our own. Each time it is excellent. You get a lot of food, endless tea and if you don't like your choice they give you another for no charge. The decor is very elegant and we had fresh flowers on the tables and all the courses. Service from the staff is always attentive and the owner very charming. We took our 86 year old Mom for Mother's Day and it was perfect. They really did it right and the guitarist played favorite songs for Mom. There is a charming garden patio and we love the Salon. Highly recommend the High Tea Cottage, it's better than the Ritz Carlton in Pasadena and local.
