With access to this place, I could so totally forget that I have other things I have to get done and that carbs and sugar are the devil! Somehow, someway, time STOPS at Lovejoy's Tea Room and I live in a fragrant and comfy world where white flour and sugar and globs of butter and clotted cream dance merrily about... More

Visited this place in 2010. It has a good range of teas, and offers a very good "High Tea" without the pretension (and often absurd pricing) of the more upmarket places. Also, finding anywhere in America that makes tea properly is always a bonus. Book early if possible, they keep a table free for drop-ins on weekends, but you have... More

On a very nice sunny day after an appoitnemnt I had at a nearby office, I walked to the J Muni line stop on Church St. right in front of Lovejoy's. It was exactly 11:00 a.m. on a weekday,and I saw the line of finely dressed ladies and little girls just waiting to go inside the tea room. On impulse,... More

...... or how about a Pear Stilton salad and fruit. Maybe a cucumber sandwich? Don't be shy with the tea selection. Be creative and try something fruity or order your favorite, strong & bold. The lunches are generously presented on tiered serving trays and each uniquely delicious. The staff is as friendly and nurturing as is the vintage mismatched china... More

I was pleasantly surprised as I walked in the door at LoveJoy's one afternoon with my sister-in-law and 3,5 year old nephew. The place is absolutely amazing, packed with its teapots, cups and plates, placards and pictures covering the entire room! Extensive selection, both of sandwiches and teas, and it was all delicious. And the scones with Devon cream? Yummy!... More

It was Mom's birthday week so 8 of us went for afternoon tea at Lovejoy's. Table settings are a fun assortment of mismatched plates, teapots, cups and saucers. We had a fun time; service was good. Sandwiches and scones were tasty but salad greens spread around the sandwiches seemed out of place. Parking in the area can be difficult so... More

Visited LoveJoy's with my brother (a regular) while on business in San Fran and can see why he keeps coming back! Delicious, elegantly presented tea sandwiches, baked goods and crumpets in a fun and lively atmosphere featuring everything from moms and daughters to bridal showers. More sandwich choices than I could have imagined in scenic Noe Valley. Thank you for... More

Enjoyed a High Tea lunch with friends. We each had the High Tea with 2 sandwich choices, scones, biscuits and a choice of teas. Server kept the teapot full and hot. Sandwices were served on an attractive tiered platter. China is all mismatched which is charming. Funky and Fun!
