No, this is not British Barbie's house. It's Crown & Crumpet, bearer of afternoon tea, Welsh rarebit, and your daily quota of pink since 2008. Owners Amy and Christopher Dean write to say the last day of business in their current Ghirardelli Square location will be May 27th. They're in the process of negotiating a lease on a "much larger tearoom" somewhere downtown, and if they get the space, there will be room for a new private party room and tea bar, in addition to their retail shop, Fancy Goods. If all goes to plan, the new location will open in Summer or early Fall. And if you need to get some pink and crumpets in the meantime, ecommerce will go live on their website in June.
