We celebrated a late valentines tea a few days after the 14th and service and food were fantastic. Best afternoon tea in San Diego!

We were there for Galentines, party of 6 (4 adults and 2 kids). The ambience and decor at Marlene’s is gorgeous. We used the online platform to rsvp, choose our two tea flavors, and to pay. ..very simple to navigate. The food was yummy ….but my favorite are the scones! Can’t wait to go back!

I’ve been here several times now, the most recent for a friend’s baby shower. The service is always warm and friendly. The food is always delicious—everything perfectly seasoned and each morsel different from the last. The ambience is so lovely—lots of other lovely patrons all enjoying quality time with friends. Everyone’s always so happy and pleasant. The best tea time you will get in San Diego. I highly recommend!

Beautifully set table. Colorful. Delicious Beef Wellington. Wide variety of options. I miss the lemon curd. Tea is fabulous.
