Afternoon Tea | San Juan Capistrano, South Orange County

We had a fun time at the tea house. My one complaint is that if you're going there specifically to enjoy tea, it really doesn't taste like anything. Basically, just warm water. We tried a variety of fruit and spice teas(8 different teas to be exact), and none of them had any flavor!! We let them all steep for the allotted time. But the food is good, as well as the service. Just don't order tea!! More

Food was absolutely delicious! Our server was very helpful and had great recommendations. The lamb kabobs were delicious, the hummus was the best we've ever had and the baklava ice cream was to die for. More

Live music was fantastic and the waitress was super nice! the patio was great for mother's day with my mom and my dog. There was a near altercation with a non friendly dog as i was walking to the tasting bar, my dog is an esa dog but when another dog is biting at the air to attempt an attack, this was very upsetting because it gives reasons for restaurants to do away with dog friendly patios. So Please Please if your dog does not like other dogs nearby or simply a pass by sniff hello DO NOT BRING HIM/HER. This ruins the mood and awesome idea of dog friendly places. If your dog can't go to the dog park don't bring him to a restaurant or atleast request the corner table of the far back end instead of the center walking area. More
