My girlfriends and I try to make it a point to go for afternoon tea at least once a month. One of my girlfriends stumbled upon this place and recommended that we go for our next outing. What a great surprise! It is on the quaintest street in all of Orange County, I have come to believe, and the cottage it's housed in is adorable. We sat on the porch, which was a lovely time. We all had the Mission Tea, where we were able to select our own pots of tea and finger sandwiches, scones, fruit and dessert. The scones are to die for! They serve them with jam and this cream that was excellent. The sandwiches were not as flavorful as I would have hoped, but everything else made up for them. Our server was well-informed of the tea selections, and of the history of San Juan Capistrano, so it was fun to hear about the cottage being renovated. I had a great time here and have made it a point to come here now, since it's so close to home!
