The Garden Court in the Palace Hotel, San Francisco CA
I went to the Palace Hotel in San Francisco for Tea this weekend at the Garden Court Tea room. It's a beautiful big room that has recently been remodeled, lots of colored glass that rains sunlight and painted ornately with lots of tables. The crowd was mostly older women with several tables celebrating birthdays.

Palace Hotel Tea Food
They have three or four plates that you can order. Prices ranged from $40 on up. We all had the $40 dollar plate that came with a mixture of small sandwiches. One three had meat (beef, turkey, salmon) and the others were cucumber, and apple. It also included a selection of cookies and chocolates. The cookies were pretty rich. After about five of them I was full.
Overall, the food is OK. The sweets overpower the sandwiches which made me feel a little queasy. But, it was my fault for over doing the sweets. I would prefer a few more sandwiches and less sweets.
There is a selection of four teas. It's all you can drink pretty much. Everyone gets an Individual pot that is refilled during the tea which I like.

Palace Hotel Tea Grand Piano
Palace Tea Ambiance
The room is spectacular. The accoustics also make it comfortable to talk in a normal voice. And, the soft sound of the grand piano in the background make the whole experience very relaxing.
The staff is attentive and does everything but rush you out. So, it's a great place to take your mom or friends to eat a little, but mostly talk.
