Grand-opening eve for Tuscan Tea Room & Romanza Floral

November 8, 2010 at 10:19 pm | In West Seattle news, WS beverages | 14 Comments

Tea time tonight for Aimee Pellegrini and daughter Nina on the eve of tomorrow’s official Grand Opening for Aimee’s Tuscan Tea Room and Romanza Floral in The Junction (4521 California SW). Dropping in for a few photos during the special preview, we also got to see more of the fully remodeled space:

That’s of course from the tea room side – and here, the floral side:

The tea/coffee bar opens at 8 tomorrow, the dining room (where lunch and all-day “afternoon tea” will be served) at 10:30. (As noted in our June report with first word of Tuscan/Romanza’s Junction plans, Aimee is one of the founders of West Seattle’s La Rustica Italian Restaurant.)

ADDED 1:26 AM: Thanks to Cozbi Hultz of ZZPhotography & Design for sharing a couple more scenes from pre-grand-opening night – like this view of some of the food!


  1. What a beautiful picture of Aimee and her daughter, Nina! I was wondering what was going on as I passed by at around 7pm. I am so very excited to experience it myself!

  7. Not exactly designed for guys, but if the tea and coffee are good I’ll give them a try. And even though the decor might not be my taste, they obviously put a lot of detail and thought into it. Hope it’s good!

  8. And located right next door to the beer-swilling, sports-watching enclave that is The Wing Dome. Interesting! (I sense a throwdown between ladies with parasols and Seahawk-clad football fans.)

  9. My fiance and I were just there this morning for tea and we LOVED it! We ended up splitting the pumpkin gnocchi and it was heavenly. West Seattle really needed something like this, the place is chic and the food/tea is tres magnifique! Highly recommend going.

  10. This Tea Room/Wingdome juxtaposition reminds me of the 39th/Fauntleroy/Alaska pre-Hole juxtaposition of Schucks/Hancock. :P

  13. You mean they don’t have wifi? Well feh :-) Seriously, this sounds wonderful. One of my bucket experiences was High Tea in Boston. Only once. I’ll have to try this one too.
