Tea in fabulous Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco



While Searching for the perfect place to relax and feel like I were at home, I came across this most amazing place.. I am planning a party here as they love to have parties all the time ...To make resvertations call the Tea room at 415-771-4252

Welcome to Crown & Crumpet, a stylish room with tea and wit, in fabulous Ghirardelli Square in San Francisco. The delicious food and libations will transport you to a classic, traditional tea salon in England, but the stylish and vibrant décor tells you this is not a stuffy, Victoriana “ye olde tea shoppe.”

Built on the love and consumption of many cups of tea the world over, owners Amy and Christopher Dean invite you to slow down and enjoy the tea experience with friends, family or on your own. Forget about that cup of coffee and step inside the world of Crown & Crumpet, a spirited, delicious, and sometimes cheeky, room with a view, serving the world’s most popular drink — second only to water.




Pastry Chef Caroline Romanski is a veteran of some of the Bay Area's best including Oliveto, Stars, The Blue Fox, La Farine bakery, Arlequin, Cafe Monk, Bay Bread Boulangerie, Bittersweet Cafes, and most recently Patisserie Philippe. She also worked on the East Coast at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Tyson’s Corner and Lespinasse Restaurant in the Washington, D.C. area. Miss Romanski graduated from the California Culinary Academy in the mid 80's and furthered her training in Copenhagen, Denmark.
Crown & Crumpet opened in the newly revamped Ghirardelli Square in the heart of old San Francisco in late September 2008. A destination tearoom known for top-quality food and excellent libations, all with the style and charm that one finds in modern day Britain. Crown & Crumpet infuses tradition with a large dose of panache and humor. There is no ‘Granny’s front parlor’ look for Crown & Crumpet. Renowned English architect and designer Roland Courtenay Bishop has created an architecturally inviting space with a creative interior décor designed by owners Christopher and Amy Dean.
We offer a range of food service beginning with a breakfast selection (10 am) and move on to light lunch and afternoon tea service which starts at 11 am.

Love Potion....Global Love Day!



I don’t know about you, but for me Valentine’s day is not about a $200 bottle of wine or a dinner reservation that took months to get, but instead, a festive ritual meant to be spent with the one (or ones) you love in whatever way you chose to celebrate each other.

Of course, nothing adds to the merriment like an organic cocktail made just for the occasion. Newlyweds Jay Esopenko and Melissa Gugni, owners of Drink Event Bartending in San Francisco, have designed a couple especially for us. Enjoy!

Love Potion #12
2 oz. organic 100% pomegranate juice
1 1/2 oz. Square One organic vodka
1/2 blood orange squeezed
1/2 lime squeezed
1/4 to 1/2 oz. simple syrup (1/2 raw sugar–1/2 water dissolved)

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake vigorously for 10 seconds and strain into a cocktail glass. Float 3 fresh cranberries for garnish.

Raspberry Bliss (non alcoholic)
6 organic raspberries
2 sprigs of fresh organic thyme
1/2 organic Meyer lemon
1/2 oz. simple syrup (1/2 raw sugar–1/2 water dissolved)
3 oz. sparkling water

Remove the leaves from one sprig of thyme and add with 5 raspberries to a shaker. Muddle. Add lemon juice, simple syrup and ice. Shake vigorously for 10 seconds and strain into a hi-ball glass filled with ice. Top with sparkling water and garnish with a raspberry and sprig of thyme.



Another day to remember is Global Love day on May 1st,2009
It is our vision to unite one and all in a celebration of love and compassion. We honor each May 1st as a symbolic day of unconditional love and call upon all people and all nations to gather together in the wisdom of peace and love.

Global Love Day is the universal recognition of our innate oneness through love. When we come from this limitless love we naturally and easily embrace ourselves and our fellow humanity. Opening our heart, we allow unconditional love to be our guide and compassion to be our gift to life.

We invite you to celebrate with us by consciously focusing on love and what it means to you throughout this day. We hope that by practicing love in all areas of your life, you will find it easy to love unconditionally all year long.

Our main theme explains it best...

"Love Begins With Me"

Save a Little Love for the Planet on Valentine’s Day


Save a Little Love for the Planet on Valentine’s Day

free trade chocolatesValentine’s Day is fast approaching! February 14th is Saturday and you want to be prepared, but while you’re at it why not show some love for the planet too. It doesn’t take much to green your Valentine’s gifts and festivities. You will be surprised at how much love you can spread around the world. Here are some great tips you can use to show your loved one you care about them, and the planet.

1. Buy valentine cards from local artists who make greeting cards out of recycled material.

2. Make your own valentine cards with recycled items and things from nature such as dried flowers, satin ribbons, fabric hearts.

3. If you like to dine by candlelight dine with eco-friendly fragrance free candles. Beeswax or vegetable based candles that are biodegradable and smoke-free are a good choice.

4. If you drink wine or champagne make sure it’s the organic kind and if there is a vineyard near by buy from there. You will be supporting a local business, cutting down the use of packaging for shipping and probably saving some money too.

5. Buy Organic or fair trade chocolates treats, (if you can buy from companies whose profits go to helping endangered species) or make your own chocolate treats with organic chocolates, nuts and fruits.

6. Buy lingerie made of hemp or organic cotton.

7. Wrap gifts in red fabric or recycled wrapping paper.

8. Don’t buy a vase of flowers. Buy instead a locally grown potted plant of red roses. Not only is this more environmentally friendly, but they also last longer. You can also go a step further and plant the roses in the ground for your loved one.

9. Gifts that are not materialistic: name a star after your loved one, buy a piece of the rain forest, make a donation in their name, etc.

10. Get really romantic, put on an organic apron and make a home cooked organic meal.
