“Charming Holiday Tea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014 via mobile

Their special Holiday Tea is served in the Tea Room that's been trimmed out in a wintery, Christmas theme. Custom seasonal tea blends were offered in addition to their other extensive tea choices. Homemade sweet and savory fare, plus petit fours and sweet treats. Don't eat before you go! Warm, inviting atmosphere with friendly, attentive service. A great choice for a holiday get together with friends different than the usual Christmas lunch. Cute little gift shop too.

“Lovely Tea Room - So Civilized”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

This downtown Pleasanton tea room, with seatings at 11:00, 1:00 and 3:00, is really lovely and such a nice place to celebrate a birthday or a small shower. The one room is decorated in Old England with small tables, chairs and couches. The tea selection is vast and you are invited to try as many as you like. The staff is so helpful and nice. When the tier of sandwiches and goodies arrived, it was hard to decide where to start. There are warm tarts, finger sandwiches, scones and lots of sweets. Definitely a wonderful girly experience.

“Lovely tea room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

The setting was elegant, the food delicious. A variety of teas were poured. a fun place for a "girls lunch out". a bit pricey, but tea rooms usually are.
