I had a super girly weekend with my girls at Crown & Crumpet in Ghirardelli Square. C&C is a little tea room that serves afternoon tea with crumpets, scones, mini sandwiches and desserts. It was mucho fun and I’d definitely be down do it again some time soon.
I doubt any man would want to be caught dead at this place. Lots of pink, lots of floral print, lots of tea. This is a great place for birthday parties (for all ages), baby/wedding showers and in our case, a girls day out. The staff is super friendly and they didn’t rush us the entire 2 hours we were there.
Food – We got 2 orders of the “tea for two” which were $42 each, making the total bill about $100 for 4 people. With your choice of tea, the meal came with an assortment of 8 sandwiches, 2 crumpets, 4 scones, and tons of mini desserts. Everything was split evenly so you didn’t have to fight over for the last crumpet with your partner. Since I am a picky eater, I was only able to eat some of the sandwiches; but those I tried – egg salad, chicken curry salad, lox and cream cheese- were all very delicious. The bread was a little on the dry side though. The crumpets were crunchy and buttery, the two types of scones (blueberry and plain) were soft and crumbly, and the truffles were rich and creamy.
Tea – C&C has an impressive variety of teas ranging from green, black or white teas to fruity and herbal teas. We got the Merry Mango (black tea with a splash of ripe mango), Strawberry Fields (green tea matcha with sweet strawberries and creamy vanilla), Peach Crumpet (white tea with peach flavor oils) and the Lychee Oolong (a dark oolong tea with rich lychee flavors). Although all were very delicious, I’d have to say the Strawberry Fields was my favorite. It went really well with the cream and heart-shaped sugar cubes.
