Afternoon Tea

A- A A+

A time-honored tradition

Experience this lovely tradition in the relaxing and gracious ambiance of Filoli. Enjoy delicious finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam, and mini pastries served on lovely three-tiered platters. Try all three of Filoli’s selected teas each month, served by attentive volunteers in the estate’s unique collection of china teacups. Transport yourself to another time when life seemed a lot simpler. Tickets for Afternoon Tea include the entrance fee to Filoli for the day.

The Afternoon Tea menu changes seasonally and cannot be altered for special dietary requests. Please join us for our themed tea occasions like Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Flower Show, and Holiday Teas.

Proceeds from Afternoon Tea support Filoli’s mission, from the care of the historic House, magnificent Gardens, and vast Nature Preserve, to the events and programs that will keep Filoli culturally relevant for the next 100 years. Thank you!
