There’s several incredible places to get a proper afternoon tea in the San Diego area, and of these, The Grand Del Mar is one of my favorites! First off, the grounds of this gorgeous resort are absolutely stunning. As you drive up the winding roads, surrounded by fields of green, you truly feel that you’re somewhere far, far away from the hustle and bustle of San Diego, though in actually it’s only mere minutes up the 5 North. While the outdoor atmosphere is breathtaking, inside The Grand Del Mar you will find opulence of the finest variety. Marble everywhere, fine furniture and art galore, and the absolute coziest library ever awaits you within the resort. And while the surroundings are plush as can be, the tea service itself is divine: from the cute, little, finger sandwiches to the aromatic tea itself, this service leaves little else to be desired.
