I recently had the pleasure of attending afternoon tea at the White Hart in Pacific Grove. The White Hart is a charming old Victorian home that has been restored and has just opened for tea service. I wish I could’ve taken a tour of the whole house but apparently the owners actually live there, so I doubt they want their patrons wandering their private space!
We were seated in a light filled room overlooking Lighthouse Ave. The table was set with antique floral china that reminded me of my grandmother’s own china set. We were given menus to look over and decided to have the full afternoon tea which included 4 different sandwiches, scones with clotted cream, lemon curd, and strawberry preserves, and a selection of desserts.
Over the course of an hour or so my friend and I chatted over several cups of loose leaf tea and indulged in all the wonderful treats that were given to us. It was a very peaceful and enjoyable afternoon. I’m hoping to return to the White Hart again before we leave! The White Hart will be open every 2nd and 4th weekend of the month and can also be reserved for private parties. Check out their website HERE for more information and to make a reservation.
