Sip Tea Room
At first glance, Sip Tea Room in the Sunset looks like a cafe. But you’ll soon realize you’re at a casual but not over-the-top afternoon tea experience as soon as the finger sandwiches, black and green teas, and sausage rolls arrive. The rotating selection of freshly made scones is what sets this place apart. Warm to the touch, soft, and just the right amount of sweet, they pair perfectly with the tart strawberry jam, bright lemon curd, and thick clotted cream. To get the full experience ($49 for sausage rolls, sandwiches, scones, fruit, and tiny pastries), book a reservation at least 24-hours in advance, but walk-ins can always order the “lighter-fare” menu (sans fruit and pastries for around $25).
