It’s time to celebrate . . . British style! As we approach Saturday’s ceremony of Trooping the Colour, in honor of Queen Elizabeth II’s official birthday (different from her real birthday) we’ve got a few special treats for you this week from across the pond. Personally, when I think England I think tea. My wife’s family is British, and naturally tea is part of our daily lives. So when I had a chance to pay a visit to Crown & Crumpet Tea Stop Cafe in San Francisco, I didn’t hesitate one second. There’s something special about sitting down for a good cup of tea. Maybe it’s the formality of it all: the tea pot, the cup and saucer, the quaint finger foods and decadent sweets, the vibrant colors and elaborate decor. Crown & Crumpet delivers on all of these aspects and more, like Blue Bottle Coffee and a stunning vintage tea cup clock. I’m also really excited to hear they’re close to finishing a new event space upstairs. Think tea + crafting, oh yeah!!
