A Modern Take on Traditional Afternoon Tea San Francisco's Tea House

It all started with a couple of ladies consumed by the aromas of freshly baked scones and the robust tastes of savory black teas. One, raised in England, who relocated to America. One, raised in America, who relocated to England. After many adventures, the two met in San Francisco, CA. Sip Tea Room was born…

When SIP opened during the summer of 2017, we appointed our most talented friends and family members to work alongside us. Overwhelming love and dedication created the warmhearted atmosphere that radiates within the tea room walls today. We believe that using the freshest, seasonal ingredients will produce nourishing, beautiful and delicious food. We buy locally where we can, and everything is handmade in SIP’s kitchen. We’re proud that local neighbors visit regularly, and honored that vacationers include SIP as a destination spot before heading across the street to the iconic Golden Gate Park. Whether you have an hour or an afternoon to spare, we invite you to join us. – Shannon & Paula

SIP Community

Happy communities begin with knowing your neighbors! Our little Tea Room has witnessed new friendships, and long-lost re-connections being made (a few love connections too!). SIP provides a familiar place for neighbors to connect through face-to-face conversations… just a nice cup of tea and a chat with friends.

Past neighborhood events include holiday sing-alongs; evenings with wine and live music; tea room mystery book clubs; art shows featuring Bay Area talent; featured movie nights; local cabaret shows and so much more. Upcoming events are posted on our NEWS page.

Keep in touch. We’ll put the kettle on!
