TeaTime 15: Notable Tearooms That Have Stood The Test of Time

TeaTime 15: Notable TearoomsParis In A Cup
119 South Glassell Street • Orange, CA 92866

Cheryl Turner will tell you almost everything is better when it’s French. And her shop, Paris In A Cup, proves it. Cheryl had all but retired in 2006 when she sold her first tearoom. She probably would have fully retired if she hadn’t been inundated with requests to bring back a tearoom experience to the Orange, California, community. When provided the opportunity to open a new venue, she decided to do it with French flair. The tearoom offers visitors a chance to escape to France for an hour or two with detail after detail used to create a rich ambience perfect for a Francophile. In addition to a traditional tea and fare (scones, pastries, finger sandwiches), the tearoom offers a full lunch menu of handcrafted entrées. Paris In A Cup’s tea salon is open from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday.


  1. Great tearooms. You must check out Josephine’s in Godfrey, IL. You will love it. Not only excellent food, great atmosphere, but room after room of shopping for clothes and the home. We love it! In fact, I am taking my granddaughter there for her 17th birthday this Saturday. Thanks for listening. Barb Dalby

  2. My granddaughter and I had a weekend tea retreat at several tea shops .in Southern California. We went to the Rose Tree Tea Cottage and also Paris In A Cup. The experience was really very nice. We attended another which was also quite enjoyable. It was the Huntington Library and Museum which has a wonderful tea room.
