This is our “go-to” place in Pasadena. We shared a Diane Salad and a bottle of Cambria Chardonnay. Always FANTASTIC. Our server, Jaz, was excellent. She was extremely courteous and helpful.

What a beautiful experience to have in celebrating my birthday with a girlfriend. We were giddy with the amount of cuteness that exuded from the tea house. I can’t wait to go back and take my mom! It’s everything you would want from a high tea and more!

Consistently delicious food. Always enjoy the ambiance. It was a challenging night for an understaffed kitchen but the wait was perfect for wine and conversation. Wait staff authentically shared there may be a wait and kept calm. Lovely night out.
