It's hard to find a good cup of tea when traveling. Alice's solves that problem. Perfect eggs, perfect scones, we weren't rushed (in fact, had to ask for our check) and I went home with a bag of Russian Caravan tea.

Fun little place with great scones and a nice selection. My daughters and wife loved it, I was surprised by the generous portions. Yes its expensive, but its New York.

We met a friend for brunch on a Sunday morning. Alice's Tea Cup was busy but we were able to get a table. The restaurant was, unsurprising, an Alice in Wonderland theme. They specialise in tea and have a very extensive list, served in either...More

It's a lovely place for brunch, tea, or light lunch. I will say it seems to be a popular place for kids, so if that's something you don't enjoy, keep that in mind. The staff is knowledgeable about the varieties of tea, and the scones...More

Not at the outlet at west end. You will to go down a flight of steps to get to the cafe. They have another outlet in the east side but I have not been there, so not sure. Perhaps you can give them a call and check.
