Went here the other day with my mother. Found it tucked away in an unsuspecting neighborhood. We ordered the High Tea. Realized by the time we ate two sandwiches, tea, scone and two salads there probably wasn't going to be room for much else. We ordered a total for 4 different sandwiches (Pear with Stilton, Chicken and Asparagus, Bay Shrimp... More

Lovejoy's has been my go to place for afternoon tea for years. I've had many celebrations with friends and loved ones over the years at this lovely tea room. It's friendly, cozy and inviting. The staff is welcoming and the service is spot on. The Queen's Tea includes a bottomless pot of tea (there is a large selection of teas... More

Location: It's on the corner so you won't miss it and it is street parking! Customer Service: Friendly staff and very attentive. Decor: Very cute vintage and antique feel! I love the decor actually, it feels like somebody took a box and put in all these memorabilia with cute old school furniture and shook it up and bam you got... More

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
