Hidden from San Diego's busy freeways and sheltered from the hot afternoon sun is Tea-Upon-Chatsworth, a traditional English tea room located on the corner of Chatsworth and Voltaire in Point Loma. Constructed to revive the luxuries and leisure of British high society, the lace curtains, floral patterned china, and creamy green walls help put you at ease as you embark on a two-hour culinary escape. Capitalizing on Old World traditions, this tea room provides a getaway from the disquiet of contemporary lifestyles.
The tea room offers a wide selection of premium loose-leaf tea that has been carefully crafted to cater to a wide range of palates. Tea novices are welcome as the staff can help you select from the drink menu and pair selections with your meal. Classic, full-bodied teas from India and lighter white teas from China accompany a rotating selection of seasonal teas.
In addition to the many tea varieties, service includes several dining options; a four-course High Tea, a three-course Afternoon Tea, and a lighter Cream Tea service all allow patrons to partake in creative seasonal savories and sweets. The dining menu features a combination of baked goods, tea sandwiches, and fresh fruit. In tribute to its roots, their current summer menu boasts Welsh Tomato Rarebit and Cucumber Garden Tea Sandwiches. Traditional scones with Lavender Glaze and Strawberry-Rose Jam are a certain crowd pleaser.
