Julian Tea Room in Julian, California

We drove from San Diego into the Cuyamaca mountains to Julian, CA an 1870's gold mining town.
We enjoyed afternoon tea at the quaint and casual Julian Tea and Cottage Arts.
This amazing shop had a nice menu to choose from, a very large and well-stocked gift shop, and served lunch and afternoon tea at only three tables!  What a fun place! 

Afternoon tea began with fruit.
A nice variety of tea sandwiches included curry chicken salad on a croissant,
cucumber sandwiches, olive nut sandwiches,
 a fruit cream cheese spread on raisin bread, and a warm cheese spread on baguette slices  
Delicious homemade shortbread cookies and buttermilk scones
were served with cream, homemade lemon curd and apple butter.
Dessert was a delicious bread pudding with whipped cream. 
We were so glad we drove into the scenic mountains to Julian for tea.
October is Apple Festival time.  There were many opportunities to purchase apples and enjoy apple pies,
but we had plans for the evening.  
I will post more photos of the Julian tea shop.

Love the tea room at Julian. The setting was perfect and the food looks divine, not to mention the three of you having a great time.

Looks like a fun place Linda! Thanks for sharing the photos and menu. So many tea rooms.... so little time!

Now THIS is absolutely charming! (And I skipped lunch today. Why do I torture myself reading about yummy food when I'm starving!)

This looks like a wonderful tea room to try! And Julian sounds like a great place to visit. We are close enough that we could do so sometime. The food looks scrumptious! And the lovely tea services! Nice!

This is one of my first, and favorite, tearooms. Edie even helped me get started with my tea catering.

What a cute little tea room. I just had a few minutes to scan some posts that I missed recently - very fun!
