I am happy to report that our friends at Chado Tea Roomhave re-opened in a beautiful new space at the Hollywood & Highlandshopping center. Just near the main entrance of the Kodak Theater, Chado invites guests of all ages to their cozy tea room for a cup, a bite to eat or both. Just when I started to think I needed to pay them a visit, I was invited to join four friends for afternoon tea today.
Our host Gary, wearing a lovely turquoise blue shirt and black suspenders, welcomed and then took great care of us during our entire two-hour visit. We each received our own pot of tea as well as (count ‘em) 4 sandwiches, a warm scone with the best clotted cream, and of course little pastries for dessert. The place was packed the whole time we were there, so be sure to make a reservation in advance. Having afternoon tea is one of my favorite pastimes, and I’ve enjoyed it around the world and on the high seas. What are some of your favorite tea rooms?
