We chose Alice's Tea Cup for its proximity to AMNH and the subway and because we thought our 8 year old travelling companion might appreciate the theme.
Alice's did not disappoint! The forward shop brimmed with Wonderland curiosities - books, gifts, scones, teas and all sort of Looking Glass treasure.
The cafe was equally delightful and we appreciated the lighter lunch offerings of sandwiches, salads, soups and scones. We also enjoyed browsing the extensive tea list - a flavor for every favor (or giant coffee, if you prefer). The cozy dining area trickled with whimsical surprises and thoughtful trimmings and trappings - plenty of atmosphere for the perfect Tea Party.
Bonus: our ample chocolate-chip raspberry scone to-go came with REAL cream and jam - definitely a five star score!
