We had a reservation for 2:00 on Sunday afternoon. The hostess was rude when we said that we had a Groupon. Our party of three wanted to purchase the "Tea for 3" Groupon but it was "sold out" so we purchased two of the "Tea for 2" Groupons instead. The hostess stated that they would only honor one of the Groupons. We explained that we tried to purchase the "Tea for 3" and she said that they don't actually acknowledge that one anymore. We asked why it's even on the site if they don't honor it anymore. She didn't have an answer for that. We were seated and our server did not come to our table for 10 minutes. (We have been here before and have been served tea within 2 minutes of being seated.) It took another 10 minutes for the tea to come to our table. Our food was served 20 minutes later. When we've been here in the past, the food was served within 10 minutes of being seated. This is the fourth time I've been to this tea room and I would not return.

A hidden gem in Seal Beach. Definitely fun to do with family, or friends. Sample different pot of teas while enjoying scones and mini sandwiches. Not enough food to become full but friendly service. The cottage is a small, quant place so make reservations ahead of time.

Food and service was very good. Only reason for not giving 5 stars was cottage wasn't as nice as their sister cottage in Tustin.

From Our Editors

As sunlight pours through the lace curtains of McKenna's lemon-yellow tearoom, hostesses deliver light treats and 37 types of tea to frilly, glass-topped tables. Triangle-cut finger sandwiches, cheese- and vegetable-filled quiches, and leafy salads flaunt their fresh ingredients on the restaurant’s chinaware, which sit alongside steaming teapots that transform lunches into sumptuous high teas or shift blame after ill-timed wolf whistles. The shop unfurls its tearoom and garden patio to a myriad of private events, hosting elegant celebrations for bridal showers and children's birthdays, which get magical enhancement with appearances by Snow White and other fairy-tale characters. After nibbling on teatime dishes, patrons can peruse the selection of gifts, accessories, and shabby-chic housewares in the gift shop to help commemorate their outing without filling pockets with Devonshire cream.
