Girly alternative to tea house? Costa Mesa or near

Hi all,
My sisters and I are taking our preschool daughters and mom to the Nutcracker for Kids performance at the OC Performing Arts Center. We were hoping to take them to tea somewhere sweet afterwards but our first choices have seemingly all closed in the last year or so :( Any suggestions for something special?

Thank you!!

    It's been a couple years since I've been to the McCharles House for tea (I hosted a baby shower there), but they're still open (I'm get emails from them).

        I was going to suggest this too--perfect for this situation--but it's across town.

          I was just there and the tea was over-steeped and the food quality was fairly abysmal, so you are not missing much. Here are some tea rooms in Orange County: http://www.letseatoc.com/tea.htm . Maybe one of these will work? Have fun!

          I was under the impression that Marche Moderne did some type of tea and tea food service. But I looked at their website and didn't see anything about it there. You might just call them and ask specifically about this and see what they say.
