The Grand Del Mar

For a truly royal experience, visit the gorgeous Fairmont Grand Del Mar for a lovely afternoon tea. High tea is served in their charming library Fri. through Sun. from 2-4 p.m. The upscale experience caters to children by offering the mini tea swirlers a "child selection" of the three-course service. Indulge in finger sandwiches, scones and Devonshire cream and petite pastries while sipping fine teas. Everyone will leave satisfied and tantrum-free—especially mom, after a glass of wine or champagne.
