Wandered in after spending the day at the Natural History Museum, but not wanting to pay the prices! The largest selection of tea I've ever seen, most of which I'd never heard of (but the staff were on hand to make recommendations which was very helpful). Very quaint little place with an Alice in Wonderland theme, with very large cups... More

Our first trip here and it won't be our last. Service was great, food was delicious, and order was very quick to arrive at the table. Very nice atmosphere for little ones. Recommendation, make a reservation.

Visited this restaurant with my wife and 3 daughters. Loved the concept of the place and how the hostess sprinkles fairy dust on the kids before sitting down. But, they did not have enough fairy wings for our 3 girls, took a long time to be seated when they were not busy, and an even longer time for the waitress... More

Really loved taking a break from the hustle and bustle here! One pot of tea and two (huge) scones only $12. You could go by yourself, sit and read, and be comfortable. Stopped twice on our trip, nearly everything was consistent... scones were delicious (favorites were salted caramel chocolate and apple cinnamon), tea was great (Indian Chai-amazing), place is cute,...

What a wonderful brunch! I can't say enough nice things about the food, the tea, or the service. I could hardly decide what to get but the cornmeal blueberry pancakes were an excellent suggestion by the waiter. The different teas were unique and tasty. We even found a little room for dessert and they were wonderful. Can't wait to go... More

My teenage daughter and I dined here for breakfast on our way to walk through Central Park to the Met. Location is just a block off of Central Park West so it was a good place to start our day. Quiet too. We were there just after opening on a Friday morning and just two other parties were seated. Loved... More

Went with local friends to get the full Alice experience, including "fairy dust". The selection of teas is wonderful (I enjoyed the Earl Grey Bergamot) and the menu is great. Adorable mix and match china add to the experience. Great for kids as long as you don't have to wait too long. Service was a little slow, but they were... More

As Anglophiles, my husband and I delight in the ritual of afternoon tea. Alice's Tea Cup is a welcome new addition to our favorite places in the city. The tea choices are varied enough to satisfy the most jaded palette... I love the somewhat funky atmosphere and couldn't stop smiling as I observed tables of happy multi-generational family gatherings. This... More

My dad and I went here for a breakfast on a sunny May Saturday morning. We arrived around 9 and we got seated at a nice table, with 3 other tables around us occupied. We got the menu straight away, but it took a while before the waitress came over for taken our order. We ordered coffee and chocolate milk... More
