I loved my experience at Alice's Tea Cup. Before seeing an Alice in Wonderland-themed ballet at Lincoln Center, my friend and I had tea and scones here. The people were so friendly and the atmosphere so quaint and cute. Really made me feel like a little kid again! The Alice's Tea was delicious (coming from a coffee drinker) and the... More

This is a cute little tea shop/restaurant tucked away in NYC with an Alice in Wonderland sort of theme, and it's worth a stop if you've got the time. The tea was wonderful and the food done just right. It can be difficult to get into without reservations, though, so you may want to call ahead.

On the third try someone picked up and said they were having phone problems but that we could come at 12. When we got there_we waited for 20 minutes because the... More

Knew about this place from trip advisor and planned to visit after going to History museum. Hadn't booked but got a table ok. Ordered the afternoon tea with scones , sandwiches and cookies. Plenty of variety of teas and staff very friendly to help with choice. Food was excellent and the cookies we couldn't eat we're bagged to take away.

This whimsical little restaurant is a nice stop for a morning start. You can opt to order a la carte from the menu or choose to tea for 2+ option. Staff at 2 of the locations we visited were very friendly and accommodating -i.e. if you leave your name and number they actually call and follow up to tell you... More

We went to Alice's Tea Cup for Breakfast, the crepes with the fresh fruit was out of this world. They have the best scones that I have had. And so many different kinds of tea. Really unique place.

We brought our children to NYC last summer and did not make it to the restaurant. This year it was a much do on our list. I expected a whimsical happy place. The atmosphere was drab. The servers seemed bothered to have to do their jobs. We were seated and waited almost 20 minutes before a server took our order.... More

Alice's tea cup was on my must visit list whilst in New York, as it looked so sweet and is such a great idea. From the outside it looked gorgeous, and inside was ok but I feel like SO much more can be done to make it a special experience!! Service was fine, we ordered tea and scones but to... More
