Alice's Tea Cup

....some of these delicious scones. (which she rarely does!). They are all delicious, except the chocolate ones can be slighlty dry. Trust me, try the pumpkin..they are topped with toffee deliciousness and are spectacular warm. The atmosphere is delightfully innocent and the servicers always friendly.

I have had afternoon tea and scones all over the world, and Alice's tea cup has some of the best I've had. Overall, the staff is friendly and knowledgable, and the scones are all different flavors every day and not at all hard or dry...I thought I knew good scones before, but now I wish i could eat scones and tea at Alice's Tea Cup every day.

Not even remotely English ... the scones are huge, hard, and full of baking soda, the jam ordinary and the sandwiches dry and tasteless. The tea was poured immediately without being allowed to steep - ruining some admittedly good quality tea. And it was hard to enjoy a cup of tea in the middle of summer when the airconditioner wasn't working The decor is gets a few things right, but the space is cramped and low cielinged, and the tacky bright pink art work and tutus are creepy.

I travel all over the country, and never have I found such a charming and delightful space with treats that leave me craving until my next visit. Alice's Teacup is an absolute treasure.

The tea is amazing- even if you don't like tea. The food is great, and although steep, the prices are definitely worth it. Definitely try it out. Also, the wait staff is the nicest bunch of people ever.

Come in if you want to sit and drink some tea and eat some scones. That chicken sandwich is great. The salads are excellent! But the best part is the fruit tart and the tea. Share a tray of food with a friend. You won't leave hungry. Prices are kinda steep. The atmosphere is cute, sweet and lovely.

Had a lite bite and tea and coffee the other night. The place is cute and the service people all seem to be having fun. Of course, the zillion kinds of tea would make any tea lover happy. There are wonderful scones and other lite bites, sandwiches and soups. All in all, it was a grweat find near Lincoln Center for a lite dinner or late afternoon snack. Prices seemed a little steep, but the overall impression was a very good one.
