Coffee & Tea 27

Afternoon tea ideas =)

coweepooh | Dec 25, 2007 08:16 AM

Sooo Ive checked out a few threads on this and was wondering if I had to choose between this list, what fellow chowhounders would suggest...

Looking for somewhere with a nice ambience, good service and delicious tea and food items above all =)

Price is open for me and I'm in the West LA area but can travel to Pasadena, I seem to hear lots of great tea houses in that area...

Can some of you shed some light on recent experiences at any of these: price, food--what they had, how the tea was and the hours perhaps?

Also--I know some afternoon teas do a buffet style which is fine with me too as long as there is variety and the food is very good =)

(trying to avoid the Ritz since we have that in DC too and I know theyre not all the same but yah...)

---The Raymond in Pasadena
---Peninsula Hotel
---Scarlett Tea Room
---Rose Tree Cottage
---Huntington Museum
---Chado Tea Room

And this is just for my bf and myself =)

Thanks so much!!!

I appreciate any other suggestions too!!!
