We made a visit to the Huntington Library and Garden for a birthday celebration. The Huntington is a lovely place to visit and the Huntington Tea Room was a great place to start. We had made reservations for 12 noon when the Garden opens. The Tea Room filled up rapidly and we were glad that we had come when we did. The self-serve style allows you to eat at your own pace and enjoy the food and view. We took a leisurely pace and the wait staff did not rush us at all. The food is well presented. The tea, sandwiches and desserts were great.
Note: The guards at the front will not let anyone pass until the garden opens. If your reservation is for 12 noon, you will have to wait until 12 to be let in. The walk to the Tea Room is about 5-7 minutes. The staff at the Tea Room know that you will be arriving a little after 12 for your reservation.
