This post is LOOOOONG overdue. I went to San Francisco for spring break this year and only have only gotten around to write this now. Hahah so sorry.
Anyway, there is this place called Ghirardelli Square in SF, and yes I am talking about the chocolate brand. It basically is a mini tourist attraction with a lot of chocolate/sweets-related restaurants. I went here because my friend thought the place was cute and we were both craving for high tea.
When I came in to Crown & Crumpet, I thought the place was very cute and girly. Pink and glittery, but cute nonetheless.
I came warning my friend that I was feeling cranky, only because it was almost my time-o-the-month, if you know what I mean. Oddly and thankfully enough, the place serves a special tea for us girls’ mournful moments, called the PMTea. Oh and my tea had glitter in it (!!!!!)
We decided to order the high tea set, which includes one tea pot for each person (selection of one tea per person) and a set of bites of sweets and savories, which included egg sandwich (right one), cheese sandwich (brown one), raisins and chocolate scones (the ones on the second tier), and assorted desserts. Everything was very delicious!
We also got an order of pig in a blanket, which is basically pork sausage wrapped in puff pastry, served with mustard and vinegar salad.
All in all, our experience in this restaurant was very nice and delightful. I would definitely come here again, if ever I go back to San Francisco. I would even bring friends! So you should too :)
