So I just moved to the city and recently stumbled across the Tea Lounge. I love the set up and the service. Frankly there is nothing better than a place with a bunch of comfy couches to lounge on and enjoy my tea. In a city that seems to have an overabundance of coffee shops that appear to be morally opposed to comfortable seating I applaud the Tea Lounge. The food prep team seems to be on the ball. Although adding a little kick to the menu would be a bad idea.

We were looking for a place to chill after taking in the Brooklyn museum and stumble across this gem. Great service decent snacks and a full bar! Heaven

I have nothing against mothers - I have one and she's great, but there is nothing more annoying than trying to get a cup of coffee after swimming through a blockade of strollers to get to the counter, only to have a few feral children running around in circles beneath your feet. I cannot fathom the logic behind allowing a preschooler to toddle around unsupervised in an place where scorching hot drinks can rain upon their little heads if someone trips. Otherwise, the filfth is accentuated by the couches that they must find discarded on the sidewalk and spray with Febreeze once or twice. The coffee is unimpressive. Tea is not too bad, but I have to agree with a previous review - they do look stoned half the time: one morning my server dropped a tea bag on the ground three times before he managed to get one in a cup. I must admit though, this is a fantastic place to watch the world go by and to collect fodder for short stories, if you can stand the aforementioned dirty couches for too long...

Tea lounge is around the corner so I have been in there a few times. Unfortunately their coffee and service are on par with their beat up ironic couches. The employees must smoke a bowl together before work everyday with the spacey, semi-annoyed way they take your order and bump into each other preparing it. But I guess that is urban chic nowadays to dress dumpy and act spaced out, I don't know, whatever it is, it's annoying and overpriced. Go down Court St to any of the family owned joints for an amazing cup of coffee for half the price, and nobody is whining for a tip on top of that.

I only went here once, but it was a fantastic experience. Don't count on being waited on, or having a fantastic meal. Do count on relaxing and just enjoying yourself with a book, your lap top, or a few friends. Its basically an arrangement of 6 or 7 living room set ups adjacent to eachother. Come in, find a spot to set up shop at, and then order your choice of wine, alcohol, hot beverage, pastry, etc... Its truly a place to lounge around outside of your own house. If you're bored and want to get out, go here, but if you're looking for a fine dining expereince or an amazing night out, try another place.
