“Crying kids ruins special treat”
Reviewed November 3, 2011

The lovely atmosphere was ruined by a table with an infant, a screaming toddler, and a small unruly child and a family that didn't give a damn that this was not a Chucky Cheese. I didn't mind so much the mother beast feeding at the Table anything to shut the baby up,! but then for the Mother to take a long cell phone call at the table was too much. I had wished the staff had suggested they take the crying children outside or tell the lady that cell phones weren't allowed but no.

“Good value, but pretty chaotic”
Reviewed November 2, 2011

This is not a traditional tea room experience, so don't expect to be blown away. It was crowded, loud, and pretty chaotic - we had to wait 20 minutes to be seated for our reservation. Luckily, we had a table off in a corner and was somewhat shielded from the general chaos. The buffet selection was nice and the food was generally tasty, especially the scones - and a good value for the price compared to other tea rooms since it is buffet. It lacked the personal service that makes afternoon tea truly delightful. If I ever head back to the San Marino/Pasadena area, I will make tea reservations at the Langham Hotel instead.

“The afternoon tea is just fine, as long as you don't have to pay for admission on top of it.”
