San Francisco, CA, USA

The Rotunda at Neiman Marcus


Those of you who follow me on Instagram may have seen that I was in San Francisco for a super short stint recently, where I finally had the opportunity to check the Rotunda at Neiman Marcus off my restaurant bucket list. Ever since I heard they served afternoon tea there, I've been dying to go!


Chicken consommé. A perfect-sized portion to ready your palate, so delicious.


Complementary popovers with strawberry butter. I'm trying to cut back on breads (my #1 enemy) but it's very hard when there are popovers involved.


Another look at the gorgeous stained-glass ceiling.


I had the Jardin Bleu black tea, it was very fragrant and had a nice fruity flavor.


All the necessary accompaniments--lemon, Devonshire cream, lemon curd, raspberry preserves, and honey.


The Signature tea service for one person


Honestly not the best afternoon tea out there, the sandwiches were very average and I usually love scones but this one was just okay. But, I was really there for the environment anyway!


My best friend had the lobster club and it was really yummy! I didn't think I would like it but it was so good. I would definitely order this next time!


A look from the outside, right across from Union Square.


All in all, a highly recommended experience if you are ever in San Francisco! Great for a lunch date with girlfriends or boys, take your girlfriend there if you want to impress her! I mean, afternoon tea under a gorgeous domed ceiling with a view of Union Square? Surrounded by beautiful/expensive clothes and shoes? What could be better?

  4. Your pictures are gorgeous! Neiman Marcus usually tends to scare me away since I'm afraid I'll drool on all the pretty [expensive] things, but now I really want to go for afternoon tea with my girlfriends :) Thanks for sharing!

  15. Tania, thats a lovely place to go! The tea service looked lovely, but sad that it was just "ok". Would have thought that it will be mind blowing just like the scenery inside the restaurant. Anyway, at least you had a chance to go and check it out yourself :)

  17. jdfakldsfajdksfhad that tea set looks amazing. I remember I visited the neiman marcus cafe once and had those popovers which my parents and I still talk about to this day. I'd love to make it back there some time if I ever visit the west coast again!
