  1. Seems a bit pricy ... $8 for two crumpets?

    However, from the Ghiradelli Square website ...

    "After tea you can indulge in the English Aperitif bar with a fine selection of Sherries, Ports and Madeiras with other libations and of course, loads of nibbles"

      $42 for Tea for two does seem pricey -- and three?!?! scones for "tea for two"? How do they figure two people are going to split three scones?
