Lovely, quaint tea house with all the lace, charm and pink you would imagine from an American interpretation of tea time. It's like playing dress-up as an adult! Lovely garden patio. Beautiful flowers. Great location on historic street near the Mission. It is on the...More

I don't know whether Tea House on Los Rios is under new management or it was just the service personnel but today's experience certainly wasn't what I have experienced over the past years. The food was good, excellent scones, average sandwiches, nice desserts, but service...More

We visit this charming tea spot every year or two and enjoy taking young girls--or our middle aged girl friends. The historic house is charming! We've hosted a lovely tea for a bride on the porch and it was a cozy, private setting for a...More
