My new favorite lunch spot is the Seventh Tea Bar in Costa Mesa. The hip and cozy decor really drew me in, and the tea and sandwiches are amazing. They actually have tea "on tap" , which for a tea lover like me is to-die-for! They also offer a "tea service", which includes all kinds of petite sandwiches and treats. It is conveniently located right next to the Portola Coffee Lab which is known to offer some of the best coffee in Orange County. The location is best described as a pseudo-food court, but a lot more fun!
The Seventh Tea Bar is on the right of the courtyard, above.
