“Good food and ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

I love this place for the food and the ambiance. It's a little on the pricey side. Men enjoy this tea room as well as women. There were 2 other men in there besides my husband. He had the quiche Lorraine. I had half chicken salad sandwich and soup. Both came with this delicious pasta salad.

“Best experience in Big Bear”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Such a wonderful lunch and tea experience. We had a group of 5 and we can all say that the personal attention, the food and overall experience was fantastic. The staff made suggestions, allowed changes, and even found some extra gingerbread scones for us even though we had lunch and not the high tea. The scones were amazing!! Would make the trip up the hill just for tea!

“Good food but we won't be back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant/tea shop specializes in, of course, tea but has an intriguing and varied menu of interesting salads, sandwiches, even crepes. We had the chicken crepes with corn chowder (quite good) and a salad with cranberries, goat cheese, candied walnuts and a variety of lettuces. Our complaint was not with the food but with our server who pressure us repeatedly to order quickly ("there's a party of 6 coming in 30 minutes" -- they never showed and "we're not a fast food restaurant, you know"). Very arrogant and pushy. So, we will not be repeat customers.

“Don your finest hat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

A group of us teacher-friends made reservations for Tea Time and it proved to be the best time ever! The restaurant is adorned with cute chotchkies everywhere and the tables were set with pretty lacy and floral decorations. (This is not a good place to go if you are looking for a sports bar!) Hats are provided or you can bring your own or go hatless. The finger sandwiches and desserts (4 different types for each of us) that came with Tea Time were so delicious. Our server was awesome. We thought she was the owner but she wasn't. She was so bubbly and fun. We had the cook, a young girl about half our age, come out so we could applaud her creations. We laughed all the way through our meal. What a treat before we embarked on the new school year.
