Making Guests Their “SpecialTea,” the Tea House on Los Rios celebrates its 20th Anniversary

logo tea housePerfectly situated between the hustle of Los Angeles and the bustle of San Diego, the historic Los Rios District lies just off the I-5 freeway in San Juan Capistrano. Originally settled by Juanenos Indians allowed to live outside the mission compound, this idyllic town has grown over the years, but still retains its old town charm. Some of the original homes built still house relatives of the early settlers, generations later. A surprise gem for tourists and locals alike, Los Rios is no stranger to its own delights - including an immensely popular tea salon and boutique. Founded by the Niccola family, the Tea House has remained a family owned and operated business building relationships one cup at a time since its inception 20 years ago.

16265452 1228426590538942 7331455077200926631 nDon’t let the “tearoom” part fool you; their menu arguably outshines the décor (and that’s saying something). In addition to traditional tea and fare (scones, pastries, finger sandwiches), the Tea House offers a full lunch menu (and weekend brunch) of handcrafted soups, salads and hearty sandwiches, as well as delicious, traditional English entrees with a contemporary California twist (including a tender and flavorful rosemary roasted chicken, baked-to-order shepherd’s pie and - a Tea House favorite - an authentic Bombay chicken curry with peanuts, shredded coconut, dried apricots and golden raisins service on bed of seasoned rice). All their breads are made in-house and the extraordinary desserts are almost as beautiful as they are delicious. If you only take one thing away from the Tea House, perhaps consider making it a scone with their Early California Cream, a treat for which they have become famous or a freshly baked coconut cake with pecans.

teahouse FotorWhether you are planning an intimate gathering in a beautiful garden setting or the use of a private room or exclusive use of the verandah for a corporate function, the Tea House staff takes pride in offering personalized special events defined by simple elegance, unsurpassed service and an atmosphere unlike any other.

“Fresh, local ingredients, made-from-scratch sauces, and home-baked goodness awaits each guest every day: be it a special event or simply our daily tea.” If you’re looking for the full experience, High Tea services will take you away to another time. Any way you look at it, the Tea House on Los Rios is ready to make each moment a sippable delicacy.


The Tea House on Los Rios is located at 31731 Los Rios Street in San Juan Capistrano.
