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.
