Ooh, lovely!

Even in California it seems there are some decently civilised folk. Here's a nice cup of tea and they even thought to use a tea cozy. Definitely my kind of place. Even better, the owner played cricket in his youth so we had a long and very interesting chat about the game. I'll definitely go back!

"...Mrs. Gubbins came in with a tray of tea things and a plate of biscuits of the sort that I believe are called teatime variety, and everyone stirred friskily to life, rubbing their hands keenly and saying, 'Ooh, lovely.' To this day, I remain impressed by the ability of Britons of all ages and social backgrounds to get genuinely excited by the prospect of a hot beverage." --Bill Bryson, Notes from a Small Island
