Holiday Tea with Crown & Crumpet

Crown & Crumpet is thrilled to return to Marin Art and Garden Center for a smashing Holiday Tea experience!

Last year we made our first venture in Marin and it was a great success. We are back again this year at the Marin Art and Garden Center but in an even better, more festive part of the garden: the Livermore Pavilion!

This legendary location is the perfect place for a unique holiday experience for you and the family. We will have all the bells and whistles that we are famous for when it comes to our holiday tea parties, but this unique venue will allow you to sit inside by a roaring fire or outside (also with a fireplace) with a gorgeous view and heaters for a comfortable dining experience.

Our Holiday Teas be held on two weekends only, so be sure to book your table soon as we have limited seating.
