Crown and Crumpet

We enjoyed a late afternoon tea over the weekend at the Crown and Crumpet in Ghiradelli Square, San Francisco. The square has evolved its look by adding new quaint shops to peruse, wine tasting stops and sweet places like the one we entered for high tea that had a view overlooking the bay. They had a myriad of wonderful teas to sip with dainty de-crusted finger sandwiches, crumpets with salad, and baby sized cupcakes, brownies and other sweet treats. The decor was what created the fantasy tea haven for little girls and baby showers (though I did actually see a guy in the room). It was not your grandma's tea house, and there was even a sign that said no doilies allowed. Instead they had tasteful floral prints, modern lamps and decor that was simple and creative. My little Olivia loved the plate of toy candies they placed in front of her as she sipped imaginary tea and was hyped up on sugary treats.
