Scrumptious Saturdays: Teatime at Queen's

Tucked away in the midst of the industrial center of Costa Mesa is an unexpected hidden gem: The Queens Bakery

After parking next to what seemed to be a small warehouse, we walked into the adjacent bakery and tea shop not knowing what to expect.  Just outside the bakery, there is a small patio filled black steel tables and chairs. The steel fence are lined with colorful flower pots. Inside, we were instantly struck by the colors: bright, fuscia pink and sunshine yellow.

The Queens Bakery is every girl's perfect playhouse: filled with dainty furniture, royal pictures in mirror frames and picturesque chandeliers. It felt like we walked right into Alice in Wonderland!

As part of the Queens Bakery high tea service, we chose the house salad, with tangy Italian dressing to start us off.

We were delighted to try three different types of finger sandwiches: cucumber & cream cheese, Nutella & almonds and swiss cheese & green onion. And last, but not least, we nibbled on three different pastries --all equally delicious. 

Oh, and how can we forget the main event? The Queens Bakery offers an array of tea flavors, including our picks: a delicious peach green tea and the house green tea.

It's the perfect place for girls of all ages to revisit those whimsical, childhood tea parties!
