Had high tea with a dear friend on Sunday. The blooming tea was amazing along with the warm ginger cake - one of the best desserts we both have ever had - a must try! The owner also offers a free tea tasting prior to receiving one's order. Sunday's tasting was Burke Mint Tea - it was delicous and so... More

RESTAURANT CLOSED DESPITE RESERVATIONS. We made reservations three weeks in advance, called back the day of the reservation to reconfirm [no response], and showed up eight minutes early for our 2:00 reservation, planning to use the restroom and be sure we were timely. A note on the door said they would open at 2:00, so we waited until 2:20 along... More

It is hard to nail down when the tea room is open. I have seen notices on the door that said no customers today closed. If you can get in when open the tea service is good!

English Tea in Hayward? Finger sandwiches on tiered servers? Savory and sweet choices? YES!!! For a true "high tea" experience, or just to stop by for a respite and enjoy a "cuppa" from their extensive tea collection, the Golden Tea Room is an excellent choice!

The people are lovely when you get in and the food is very good. It was difficult to get in as they are not always open on advertised days. We called and made a reservation and got there to find it was closed that day. Not happy.

Take some time for tea. The owner insists, and she's right. A wide assortment of teas and ample choices of sandwiches/sweets and desserts. I often take friends, and no one is disappointed.

I have recently visited, with a friend, the Golden Tea Garden in Hayward. This is about my fifth time. Every time I go there, it is like taking a step back in time and sitting in a little garden far away from the hustle and bustle of everyday stresses. The fine china and antique furniture are great touches not to... More

I visited this tea room on Sunday November 17th with my mother and her boyfriend and was expecting a pleasant afternoon. What we received was, hands down, the absolute worst experience in a tea room I have ever had, and that includes the time I had a pot dropped into my lap. I have had tea in many different places...

The Golden Tea Room is beautiful to see (pristine garden furniture, flowers on each table, comfortable pillows, sundry decorations, a huge water fountain) and a great place for a wonderful cup of tea. The owner has a menu with sundry foods and desserts. She also has a keen eye for celebrating different holidays (on Valentine's Day someone played a harp),... More
