My Cup O’ Tea

My mother, a true Anglophile, brought me up surrounded by more than a few of her favorite British things. The first real, hearty books I read as a child were Agatha Christie mysteries and Charles Dickens novels. Every Thursday was Masterpiece Theatre night featuring an array of her favorite actors from the UK, and I was probably the only 12-year-old kid in school who (at the time, don’t quiz me now) knew the entire history of the English Royal Family.

Crown and CrumpetSo of course my heart raced when I saw that Crown & Crumpet opened in the historic Ghirardelli Square of San Francisco. This is a traditional tea salon with a kicky twist. Just look at these photos and you’ll see what I mean. As owners Amy and Christopher Dean said themselves, it’s “doily-free” yet still evokes the same comfort, relaxation, and elegance of a real English tearoom.

As much as I love the Pump House in Bath and the adorable tea houses in Devon, I think this would be the ideal place for an unforgettable bridal shower or even a baby shower, if you want to think that far ahead! Count me in for afternoon tea!
