afternoon tea in SF
I haven't read much about afternoon tea on this board. My friend suggests Palace Hotel but the website says they only serve on Sat. Any suggestion for a weekday afternoon tea?
Thanks for the heads-up on The Ritz -- I didn't realize they had a tea.
I'm a big fan of Neiman-Marcus for the classic high tea and Samovar when I want more. I have eaten through Samovar's entire menu and it is still my favorite place to bring someone for lunch because it is so different and special. Their Moroccan and Indian tea lunches totally rock. In fact, I may just head over there today....

Not in the city, but I had tea at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay on Tuesday. Choices are "The Royal Tea", "Traditional Tea", "Spa Tea" and a la carte. I had "The Royal Tea" but the "Spa Tea" menu perhaps looked more interesting. ($38 per person)
Your Choice of Tea
Pequillo Pepper, Buffalo Mozzarella and Walnut Pesto on Foccacia Bread
Feta and Zucchini Frittata on Olive Crouton, Sun-Dried Tomato Tapenade
Roasted Portobello, Tahini Hummus and Arugula on Brioche
The rest are the same as "Traditional Tea".
I took some pictures.
I bookmarked this page a while back, gives some places not mentioned, see link below -
I have only been to Golden Gate Park-Japanese tea house, Ritz, and Neimans..
I too like Samovar Tea Lounge..
The Secret Garden Tea House scared me, way too girly laura ashly for me.. might be cute to take little young girls there that are girly.
