The stunning lobby foyer of The Palace Hotel. This is so beautiful that upon walking in, you really need to take a breath and a few moments to take it all in!
If you are looking for an iconic San Francisco event, I suggest trying the Signature Tea at the historic Palace Hotel San Francisco. The tea takes place in their Garden Court, and since the early 1900’s guests have been enjoying this lovely experience.
The tea is served on fine china, and includes tea sandwiches, homemade scones, Devonshire cream, lemon curd, and rose petal jam at $68 per person. There is also a Veuvre Clicquot Tea at $85 per person which includes a glass of Veuve Clicquot. I, of course, opted to try this experience which added a bit more fun to the traditional tea experience.
The Garden Court where tea is offered. A few details to know before you plan your visit:
Signature Tea is available on Saturday’s between 2:00 – 5:00 pm only, and reservations are recommended. Make reservations by emailing The Palace Hotel at firstname.lastname@example.org
We were welcomed with this first course of fruit.
The Tea Sandwiches, which include Curry Chicken Banh Mi, Poached Asparagus, Smoked Salmon, and Hot House Cucumber and Egg Salad Sandwiches.
A glass of Veuvre Clicquot Rose was served with our pastries, which was a lovely pairing.
Thanks to the Palace Hotel for hosting me and Jill for tea. The setting is beyond beautiful and it is truly an iconic San Francisco experience!
