“The Tea Room with "FLAIR"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Took my daughter and grand-daughter to this venue and we had so much fun! The tea was excellent and the food was excellent as well. We had the "traditional tea". It is decorated in English decor with lots of China and hats and boas and beads. My grand-daughter loved the hats and really got into the whole food adventure. Service is excellent. I would reccomend this tea room for a special day out.

“Tea and gentility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

What a wonderful oasis of calm. As a Brit I wasn't quite sure how grand The Grand Tea room was going to be. However an excellent cup of Assam and a scone with jam (jelly) and cream and I was transported briefly back home.

Lots of lace and fine china combine together to give a wonderful feeling of calm and gentility.

I will definitely go back when I need my sanity restoring.

“Cozy little tearoom”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Lots of pretty little trinkets to look at while you wait to be seated or pay your bill. Very good choice of teas and treats. And the owner is the hostess with the mostest. Thank you for welcoming our costume group for our Venetian Masked Tea.

“Calling all Tea Lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Delightful English Tea Room. With all the expected godies! Very friendly staff & large selection of Tea. Choices on the menu range from the 2 hour "Hi tea" to a simple pot of tea with scone.
Choose your HAT when you get there or come in your own! A wonderful ladies day out. But guys are always welcome. Enjoy!!!!!

“Nice time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

If yu want to see Downton Abbey in Escondido go here. I think it's a little pricey but a full tea includes quite a lot of food and tea and service so perhaps not. Not an everyday place but siper for a special event.
