Both times we've visited New York, we have always made it a point to visit Alice's Tea Cup. The tea selection is top notch, the food is delicious, and the whimsical atmosphere makes it very memorable. My sister and I split the Mad Hatter. We each got our own pot of tea (mismatched china included!), a three-tiered tower with two different kinds of finger sandwiches, three huge scones with cream and preserves, and a dessert. Everything is made with fresh ingredients. The prices are steep, but in my opinion well worth it for the quality, taste, and atmosphere.
We always take extra scones to go because they are TO DIE FOR! I find myself randomly craving scones from Alice's.... I really wish they would ship these outside of the city so I could enjoy them at home! Their specialty is a pumpkin scone, but I found it to taste like play-dough. Instad opt for a chocolate or fruit scone, you wont be sorry! They also have savory ones but I have yet to try them.
