Crown & Crumpet Tea Room

Crown & Crumpet

Today, I would like to share with you the adorable tea room Crown and Crumpet in San Francisco, California. I must say, this is probably the cutest tea room I have ever seen!

I not only love this tea room...I love the story behind it!

Owners Amy and Christopher Dean met in London. Amy, a native San Franciscan, worked in London in the antiques trade for Ralph Lauren. Enter Christopher, a London gentleman, who was also in the London antiques trade. They fell in love, married in England and opened an antiques store in San Francisco. Next with their love of design and tea parties, they cleverly came up with Crown and Crumpet.

Stepping into Crown and Crumpet is almost like stepping into a London Cath Kidston shop. Cath Kidston's vintage inspired fabric prints adorn the tea tables and vintage upholstery throughout the tea room. It's no coincidence...Amy and Cath just happen to be friends!
