Help?! Wanted to take the mom's (my mother and sister) to tea at Ritz Cartlon in Pasadena, but they are all booked.
Am trying to think of other great tea and/or brunch spots - and coming up blank!
The mom would perfer to be by the ocean (Malibu/Santa Monica vs. OC) - sister wants great food (she likes having a buffet option, but it's not necessary).
Any great tea and/or brunch suggestions are appreciated.
We recently did tea at The Pennisula, and I wasn't overly impressed with their tea sandwiches and didn't really like the space (seemed a little cramped and an extension of the lobby). Their scones are to die for, though! :) We've also tried Hotel Bel Air's tea, and would like to try something new.
