One of the most scrumptious pleasures you can experience when visiting San Francisco is Tea Time. There are at least 10 places to enjoy this British past time in the city, including The Palace Hotel.
But it was with pure merriment that I went for the first time with 3 friends and our daughters to partake in the decadent delights at Love Joy's Tea Room.
Their menu includes Cream Tea service, High Tea, Queen's Tea, and even Wee Tea for young tea drinkers. The ambiance is akin to walking into aunt Mabel's cottage where you can get cozy and comfortable in the wooden chairs and unpretentious table linens. Services of mixed-matched saucers and tea cups adorn each place setting giving it a whimsical feel (and makes you realize you can do this at home with Good Will finds). The waitresses give you a thorough rundown of the menu and wide selection of tea. Each of us had our own tea pot, I enjoyed a decaf chocolate tea, it was utterly devine :)
