This tea house is the best one I have been to in the bay area! The shop is darling and whimsical! The last time I was here was to host a shower for my sister who was getting married, everyone loved it! The ladies that serve are so patient and welcoming, the food was delicious and the variety was perfect! I live about 1 hour from here and don't mind driving to come here. A plus? It's right infront of the golden gate park which makes for a wonderful stroll after tea!!
Lisas Tea Treasures is a mixed bag, the shop is quite lovely, the service however varies, I guess it depends who is serving, a few of the girls are rude and try to rush you if you happen to come at the last seating which is at 3:45 pm which seems really early to me, since the shop closes at 6:00 pm, on a few ocassions I have had the pleasure of being served by a wonderful lady with a gracious personality, the owner herself can be a little arrogant and unpleasant. Oh, and FYI this is not the place to have a children's tea party, I once overheard the owner and the staff complaining, being impatient and short with a few moms that were hosting a tea party for their daughters!! I would never bring my little girl here! The reason I keep coming back? I love tea and it is the closest tea house to my home. The food and the tea is fabulous!
