I've just come from 3 years in London back to NY and I can't tell you how nice it is to feel pampered in a way noone here has felt. This place is spot on with the menu and teas for any Britain to feel at home. From the beans on toast to their ploughmans to cucumber sandwiches-yu can't go wrong. And their selection of teas is out of this world! You want to feel like you've met the queen, have the fine English. You want to feel like you've just purchased from Whittard of Chelsea, order Darjeeling or Assam. I've bought tea from Whittard and it tastes almost the same at Teany. Good job Moby and Kelly Tisdale! Cheers!

I love the desserts at Teany - hate the wait! Took a non-vegan friend from out of town. She loved the Teany sandwiches and blueberry pie/ pb bomb. Ordered espresso and was disappointed. It looked like a 1/2 cup of coffee. No crema! They charge $2.25 for it. Really poor. I love the big slices of vegan cake in the restaurant. Wanted to get some for later from the takeout section. I was disappointed. The cheesecakes are 1/2 the size of what you get in the restaurant and the price is the same. $6 is steep but I don't mind paying it as long as it's a decent size.

A devoted teany goer... love the teas, array of sandwiches. Was excited about their delivery to go that opened next door to them & delivers quickly to satiate my urges :) Was quite saddened to see that their "to go" menu offers only 10 percent off there normal menu. HOWEVER after ordering for the past 2 months, there now seems to be a problem at the "to go". Several times I have called & they can't deliver since their delivery guy is late or M.I.A. They run out of croissants now early in the day & I tried to order 4 times over the past week & they were out of whatever I asked for, wether it be the pie, croissants, muffins, ham & cheese. As well, their potato salad is like russian ruelette- hit or miss. Either crisp & tasty or completey watery, mushy & slathered with garlic so we have to throw it out? Plus, lately there is a fellow on the after 6 pm shift who has an attitude on phone, and basically sounds like he doesn't want to take the order, and sigh huffs the whole time & keeps asking is that all you are ordering when you have already racked up @ $20 worth, so the minimum is beyond met. Think the staff needs a swith cover. Their penne w/ pine nuts is always good, and the apple pie, blueberry pie is tasty when it is Fresh (delivery comes on Tuesdays), and their almond croissants are the bomb!

Very good! vegetarian and vegan friendly! Small, but cute atmosphere. Very personal and welcoming.

I'm not a fan of Moby's music, and I'm definitely not a vegan, but I was very impressed by the tea selection here. A pot was plenty for two people, and the desserts, vegan though they were, can only be described as decadent. My salad came with a tasty blood-orange vinaigrette, but the price was a bit steep... well, it's the LES, right? Cool wait staff, good music, treat the vegetarian in your life for a special lunch.

Now they have a takeout place right next to the restaurant--where they are very nice. I got a huge slice of strawberry shortcake, and they offered to put more strawberries on gratis. The cut to some of the vegan treats cakes (not the bombs tho) is rather generous, and they price based on size (smaller is $3 not 5). sides are pretty reasonable too.

While the selection is small, what they do have is amazing. I especially love the chicken salad. However, it's a bit pricey even by NYC vegetarian standards. If he lowered his prices, I'd be there every day.
