This is such a magical place!! It would be any little girl's dream to eat here. The scones are incredible. Don't be afraid of the crazy flavor combinations. Good for dining in our takeout!

All locations are charmingly themed and great for kids or adults. The food is fresh and simple and the tea selection is great. I really like the soups. I've been several times and never been disappointed. They also make and sell their own tea blend which I've found to be a nice hostess gift.

Alice's take their tea seriously. Really seriously. This restaurant, inspired from the Alice in Wonderland novel have a wide selection of tea from all around the world. But you don't have to be a tea enthusiastic to enjoy a good breakfast in Alice's Tea Cup. We've had great poached eggs with salmon and eggs florentine that left us happy and... More

Topsy Turvy Mixed Review they switched locations on tourists friends, poured hot tea on our host but the tea and sandwiches were good - what's a reviewer to do? By the way, no compensation but a muttered apology by an exiting Mad Hatter...nothing removed from the check. No manners in other words. Certainly NOT English service. Here's the rub: We... More

We went here because we used to live in the area and had enjoyed it. They make a big deal for children allowing them to borrow fairy wings while eating there. Having moved out of the area, last year I wanted to return with my 2 year old grandchild. In the past all patrons were told to park your strollers... More

The playful concept of these restaurants appeal to us and we've enjoyed tea at this location and dinner at another one. This time we tried the brunch offerings. The breakfast selection is good and presented in an elegant three tier tray using mismatched china. There was a choice of several kinds of scones scrawled on a chalk board. The first... More

The finger sandwiches were just ok and the cookies were old. The tea and scones were very good. Not really high tea.

Get the waffles with berries! Tea is good but food is really good. Huge variety of scones made daily. We bought cookies and tea to go too. Appropriate for all ages.

Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
