Alice's Tea Cup

An upper west side necessity. forget the 250 kinds of wonderful tea, steeped flawlessly behind the scenes. forget the bone china, the wacky, friendly staff, the outrageous decor. it is all about the scones. the best in the world. period.

It was so much fun! The decorations are adorable and one of the cutest things about it is the mismatched teasets. You'd think that it wouldn't look good, but it was really fun to see the different designs and types of sets. So much fun! Definitely worth going again.

I have been here many times. I think the food and tea are great. I particularly like the warm lentil salad, the scones, and the wide variety of tea. The red velvet cupcakes are delicious too! The atmosphere is nice and fun. The only negative is the service. They are very slow, almost every time and I've been there more than 5. I'm not expecting fast food at a tea place, but they can be excruciatingly slow. However, that does not stop me from going back because it's great otherwise.

Alice's is a neat place but had my husband known he'd be one of 2 men in a room with many young kids, strollers and moms, we would not have planned the trip. I'm glad we went though! The food was excellent. We had the most tasty potato artichoke soup and an unusually seasoned egg salad sandwich that was fabulous. My favorite thing was the green salad and dressing that came with the sandwich. If I could eat salad dressing like that at home, I'd have salad for breakfast, lunch and dinner! The chef at Alices really does a nice turn with the herbs and spices. You will not be disappointed. We really enjoyed a hot pot of tea too. If you don't mind a somewhat loud, and mommy crowd, you will really love it.

Alice's Tea Cup is almost a retreat from the hustle and bustle of New York City. Great atmosphere and it hosts high quality teas! I definetely recommend Alice's tea and Lavender Earl Grey. Friendly staff is always willing to anwer your questions and give recommendations. I come here on a regular basis, usually ordering Brunch. They have a fantastic brunch menu. Every dish is sparkled with a personalized touch. If you don't believe me, try the baked french toast or the granola and yogurt. It's absolutely amazing. Do take advantage of the scones, once you have one, you'll fall in love with them! An Absolute Hit!

I stumbled upon Alice's Tea Cup over on 73rd and Columbus last week. I was pleasantly surprised at how many teas they had available. Being a big green tea lover, I tried the very rare gyokuro (my favorite of all the greens). I was so impressed that I bought some loose leaves to bring home with me. I went in there for dinner and had the lapsang souchong chicken sandwich, which was excellent. The mixed green salad has an amazing house dressing that is flavored with ginger. I also tried a scone that was delicious. The atmosphere was very authentic. It was also very kid friendly. The waitress was really kind and was able to answer all my questions about items on the menu and the teas they had available. All in all, it was a pleasant dining experience and one that I am sure I will be enjoying again and again.

Would highly suggest, especially for a special occasion. Visited this past Saturday and had great service. Our server was really nice and helpful, making suggestions as to the number of items needed for a party of 5. I'd been looking forward to going for weeks and it really lived up to my expectations. Can't wait to go again!
