Lace curtains and tablecloths, bay windows, eclectic seating and mismatched china all make for a wonderful oasis that will make you forget all your worries.

The treats are delicious, beautiful and so much fun. The Queen's Tea consists of your choice of tea sandwiches, warm scones with jam and Devon cream, a crumpet with Lemon Curd, fruit and a tea of your choice from the extensive menu.
My friends Lorraine and Ruth enjoyed this luncheon which was served on a two tiered dessert plate. They also had Blood Orange tea that smelled so delicious.
I had the Pear and Stilton Salad, which was served on a cake plate! The salad had organic spring greens topped with diced pears, oranges, berries, walnuts and Stilton cheese with a raspberry basalmic vinaigrette. The plate was almost, ALMOST too beautiful to eat, but I couldn't help myself.
Besides tea sandwiches, there is pub fare for the heartier appetite which features sausage rolls, shepherd's pie and quiche.
There is a "Wee Tea" for children ten and under that consists of a cream cheese and jelly sandwich, a scone with preserves, fresh fruit, a Petit Four and hot chocolate.
Reservations are highly recommended especially on weekends.
You can make reservations for 1-15 people, or rent out the entire seating area with room for 35 for a special event like a baby shower or bridal shower.
Take a left onto Highway One as you exit Pillar Point RV Park. Follow Highway One for approximately 15 miles. Look for "Rockaway Beach" on the ocean side and take a left at that stop light. You should be able to see Lovey's right there on the left...look for a big pink tea pot. After you take the left, take a right on the next street and go about 1 block. There is an empty building next to Lovey's with parking. We parked there. OR...proceed on Highway One through the Rockaway turn and make a U-turn at the next light. Come back and you will be able to pull into parking in front of Lovey's from there.
