Julian Tea & Cottage Arts

You may know Julian more for its apple pies than its tea houses but that's all about to change. Built in 1898 for the gold miner Clarence King, Julian Tea & Cottage Arts undoubtedly offers one of the best afternoon teas in San Diego County. The Cottage Classic Afternoon Tea is a four-course meal filled with homemade treats that appeal to both your penchants for savory and sweet. They also offer a children's tea priced at just $8.95 that includes a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or turkey sandwich, scone with jam and whipped cream, cookie and choice of tea, apple juice or hot chocolate.
