Try the afternoon tea. Park in public parking down the street on Raymond. Enjoy tea with a friend. Sandwiches are filling and taste great. What you expect when you think of afternoon tea.

The tearoom is small, but cozy. We had the full tea which consisted of tea sandwiches, scones and desert. The food was tasty and the selection of teas was extensive. The cost was average and on a par with other teas I have attended.

Great place for lunch off the menu or a full tea service. They have a multi page booklet from which you added tea.

At the Hollywood location you have salad/sandwich combos or soup/sandwich ones under $10. Do you offer that for lunch in Pasadena, too?
