WARNING: Scroll no further, and do not look at any more of these pics, if you are currently so hungry that you could eat a stack of Post-Its.
Not kidding. I’m serious.
OK…if you read any further, don’t say I didn’t warn ya. 🙂
Oh, boy… I can’t even look at these pics without wishing I was there right now stuffing my face with tiny sandwiches, cakes and cookies the size of my thumb.
Little better than than Strawberry Pop-Tarts I’m having for breakfast right now! (Although sometimes a Pop-Tart really hits the spot, I can’t lie.)
The Signature Tea service is a wonderful way to take a break from shopping for a few hours if you’re ever visiting the city with friends. It costs $45 for ample ambience, a pot of tea for each person (chosen from among a wide variety of flavors) and savory sandwiches, sweets, scones and fruit for noms.
Everyone has a different nom-eating strategy, but I started with the savory sandwiches (the sliced cucumber ones with cream cheese were my favorite, followed closely by the egg salad), then moved on to the scones (which I doused in lemon curd), before finishing with the sweets, which included a gingerbread cookie that made me feel like I was melting into my chair…
Of course, the tea was delectable, too. I ordered the vanilla decaf black, and it perfectly paired with the snacks.
If you go, I recommend making reservations first, just in case it’s a busy day, and asking for one of the tables with a view of Union Square.
It just kicks the experience up a notch.
I think it would be a fun experience for a girls’ day, or maybe a mom and daughter day. Maybe next time you’re in SF?
By the way, I nominate Sarah, my friend Arianne’s baby girl, for the Best Baby Hair award of 2015.
Look at all that luxurious hair! And can you believe she’s only three months old?? That faux-hawk is natural, too. There’s absolutely no product in it.
Clearly, this child has shampoo commercials in her future. 🙂
