Lovey's Tea Shoppe was opened in 2012 and was modeled after Lovejoy's Tea Room San Francisco. Smaller and "coastside" casual, Lovey's enjoys being considered the "baby sister". Although reservations are accepted, seating is often available on our large community table, where walk-in guests are welcome and lively conversation ensues!
After 16 years of owning and operating Lovejoy's in San Francisco, we sold our beloved, booming business to focus on Lovejoy's Tea Rooms and Licensing, LLC. Our mission is to assist others who wish to bring a bit of Lovejoy's magic to their own communities. We are careful in selecting the right individuals who compliment our particular style and commitment to excellence.
We provide a successful business model, menu, decor and theme, as well as on-site training to assist others in starting, owning and operating their own Lovejoy's-themed business. Although each location is independently owned and operated, all share a similar menu, ambience, retail area, and Lovejoy's style of tea service. Most importantly, we all embrace a genuine desire and passion to share this lovely ritual with others.
Visit each one to experience the comfort and familiarity of Lovejoy's ambiance and service, while delighting in each proprietor's unique touches.
Part of the fun of visiting each of the Lovejoy's Tea Rooms is seeing how the individual proprietors have brought their own unique vision and treasures to create a magical place to take tea. There are, however, a few items that you'll always find in a Lovejoy's! On your next visit, see if you can spot any of the following: British telephone booth, a horse, a mosaic of broken china.
