Well-behaved children are welcome, but out environment is best suited for those 10 or older. All guests 2 years and oldermust have a reservationsto join us for Full Traditional Afternoon Tea Service. We can not “squeeze” in extra chairs. Strollers will need to be folded and stored during Tea Service due to lack of space. No highchairs available.
Parking can be very tricky throughout San Francisco. Sip Tea Room is located directly across from the very popular Golden Gate Park which has limited, free street parking. Spots fill up early – especially on the weekends!
Notify your friends! We want you and your guests to enjoy your full seating experience; please tell guests who are driving to allow extra time for parking. It’s worth saying twice: PLEASE TELL YOUR FRIENDS TO ALLOW PLENTY OF TIME FOR PARKING.
Public Transportation: Locals are encouraged to use light-rail, bus or bike when possible.
A note for those visiting San Francisco: Be mindful of parking signs stating limited time restrictions and street cleaning days/times. Ticketing and towing are a reality here. Never leave anything visible inside your car as daytime break-ins, unfortunately, do take place. We want you to have the best experience possible when visiting!
SIP’s enclosed, covered garden patio has lovely greenery, a heater, string lights and plenty of charm. Reservations can be made online for the 11:30am seating featuring Full Traditional Tea Service. We recommend wearing layers as San Francisco weather changes quickly and can get quite chilly. Please note: We love animals, but pets are not allowed in the garden patio due to space limitations and safety protocol. PATIO IS CLOSED NOVEMBER 2022 – JANUARY 2023, FOR THE WINTER SEASON.
A few 2-top tables are located outdoors, under our awning. These seats are in front of the tea room, facing Lincoln Way, across from Golden Gate Park. Available for reservations and walk-ins.
No outside decorations allowed. The Tea Room is already cheerfully adorned!
Only small gifts may be brought in, but please note there is not room to place them on your table as it will be filled with fine china, hot tea and delicious food. Any wrapping paper, bags, etc. must be taken out with you when you leave.
These safety measures have been put in place to keep all of our guests and employees safe. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
