One of my best friends Sasha moved back home to San Francisco from Australia a couple months ago. She was gone for over two years and while we made sure to see each other a few times during that period, my friends and I are more than happy that she is back in the Bay Area for good! Now we can hang out whenever we want and one of our favorite things to do is eat. So one Saturday afternoon we all met at Chef Michael Chiarello’s Spanish restaurant Coqueta to celebrate Sasha’s homecoming.
I love a good cup of tea and a scone. Since I miss sitting down for this treat at The Orangery in London, I like having a tea room here at home where I can go whenever a craving comes on. Lovejoy’s Tea Room is cozy and traditional and my favorite place to go for tea in the city. I recently went there with my cousins for a leisurely afternoon.
I haven’t spent a lot of time in Bernal Heights. It’s easy to get stuck in a routine and go to the same places all the time so I wanted to try something new.
