Visiting the Huntington Garden can easily take you more than a couple of hours... no problem: a stop at this big and very well organized cafeteria type of restaurant will help you fuel up with very decent food in no time!

First class service around the old traditional High Tea genre. Teas were spectacular. Food was as advertised and served with aplomb.
