Afternoon tea in Santa Monica? And kindly don't mention Tudor House, since...

isofood Feb 18, 2011 05:48 PM

I'm looking for food that tastes good. So not Funnel Mill since they really have no food...

7 ladies, 1 year to 91 years old. Quiet. I'm thinking hotel, but which one? Or something on Montana or San Vicenta (sadly Chez Mimi closed)

Please help! To make matters worse, it needs to be on a Sunday.

Thank you all.

      Thanks, Yogachik. I love Jin, but I wonder if it's not too difficult for oogenarians and nonogenarians. All the tables are outside, in the sun... not really a cozy place. Know what I mean?

      Their pastries are amazing, it's true. Just wondering if it is the best ambiance for us....

        I believe most Beverly Hills hotels do tea service. Check out the Regent Wilshire, The Four Seasons, and the Langham, in Pasadena.

              My Pleasure. My all time favorite is still the Huntington Library but it is not in the area the poster is requesting recs for. Isofood, if Pasadena is an option the HL does have a wheelchair available if walking is an issue.
