You deserve a break. Step out of the hustle and bustle of modern life and treat yourself to quality time with friends and family over tea at The Quail & Thistle Tea Room.

Indulge in a three-course California Country Tea with soup of the day, tea sandwiches with scones and savories and closing with a desert plate of variety of baked sweets and fruit. Choose from a full spectrum of teas including several varieties of black, green, and white teas, flavored black teas and chais, and tisanes such as rooibos, peppermint, and herbal blends. We serve certified organic whole-leaf teas as well as popular brands and blends such as Twinings, PG Tips and others.

For the lighter palate we offer a quiche lunch with soup, salad, and a desert plate of scones and baked sweets. If you’d just like a little snack to nibble on with your tea, we have a simple tea of scones and baked sweets.

We serve our teas on original antique English bone china collected from all over the world. Which is to say, teacups and teapots always seem to follow us home where ever we travel! China that is not currently in service is on display throughout the tea room.

We are kid friendly, mother approved! All our breakables are enclosed in cabinets or out of reach of little fingers.

The Quail & Thistle Tea Room is located in the charming Averon Carriage House in Capitola, California. Built in 1890 as part of the Castro-Lodge Averon estate, the Averon Carriage House is one of the most historic buildings in all of Capitola. Home to a tea room for over thirty years, it has become a Capitola tradition and destination not to be missed.

Reservations are recommended. Check our web site for updates or call us at (831) 477-1798 to reserve your table.

Fair weather or foul, it’s always a pleasure to sip your favorite tea next to a roaring fire. Catch up with friends, spend quality time with loved ones, or just invest in some “me” time. Take a little drive and join us for a California Country Tea at The Quail & Thistle Tea Room!
