my favorite place for tea and soups in the city ! love u guys !
Great muffins too! – If you are looking for something more substantial to fill your belly with than just a cup of coffee or tea, try one of their daily soups or a bagel with cream cheese and tomato. I ordered the white bean soup and one of these days, I am going to turn my kitchen into a culinary chemistry lab trying to figure out all of the ingredients in this soup so that I don't have to rely on somebody else to make it for me. They have a full menu of things I'll try in the future.
love the scones!!! – Shelly always recommends the best scones!! I love the tea and cupcakes too! It makes me want my own wings!!
Better Chocolate Places in town – I thought Alice Tea Cup was a pretty cute place, but I still love Allison Nelson's Chocolate Bar for the best chocolate in town! Their new location in the West Village has a great nostalgia influenced ambiance with the BEST varieties of gourmet chocolates around! They just moved to 19 Eighth Avenue between 12th Street & Jane, NYC (West Village). Its a must try, I guarantee you'll love it!
Perfect Tea Spot – I absolutely love Alice's! I'm a big tea drinker, and I'm never disappointed with their tea selection. The scones are the best I've ever had, and the soups and sandwiches are all delicious. I also love to come here for brunch--the eggs benedict and French toast are outstanding. If you come here on the weekend, be prepared for a long wait (we're talking up to two hours), but they'll take your phone number and you can walk to the park or do some shopping in the neighborhood until they call you. The servers can seem a little frazzled sometimes, but I've never had bad service here. Even on the busiest mornings, they're always happy to answer questions and make recommendations, and I've never felt rushed. Definitely make a reservation if you're coming with a larger group, and if not, I recommend coming during the week, when it's less chaotic. Even if you do end up waiting, I promise it's worth it!
Cute little knook to relax and eat – I LOVE this place. Alice's tea cup is soooo cool and relaxing. I bring my neices and nephew here for breakfast and they absolutely love it. The food is great - a huge selection of teas (green, white, black etc). Try the hot chocolate - soo devine in cold weather. I like the eggs benedict and pancakes here. Also, the crepes are awesome. You can enjoy lunch here as well as they offer lots of tea sandwiches to choose from. One year, my neice celebrated her 5th birthday party in the back room. Her friends dressed up like princesses and had tea sandwiches and hot chocolate. They also had a face painter and a person dressed up like Alice in Wonderland to read stories to them. This place is amazing!!!
bad service – i came here on a saturday afternoon with my friends. (we made reservations before hand) not all my friends were there yet and they said we had to wait until the rest of us came (only three more ppl). plus they told us we had to wait for our table...an hour later we said whats up with our table- we had reservations. they said it is very busy we might have to wait two hours. the girl at the front desk didn't even seem to sh*t. we were angry complained and didn't get anything out of that!!
An english tea any time of the day in a nice and comfortable atmosphere – Oh my goodness gracious, heavens to mergatroid and then some!!! This place is sooo cute and sweet!!!
On my first visit to the W73rd St store...on the recommendation of a friend, I almost missed it because you have to step down from the sidewalk to get to the door and I wasn't paying attention...silly me...I found it on my second pass though and had the best surprise as I entered...the beautiful aroma of fresh from the oven scones...YUM!...I love the inviting homey feel and the staff is so friendly too...! They recommended the pumpkin scone...ooh...I just have to say...to-die-for-yummy!...actually, so is the buttermilk scone...hee-hee...hard to make up my mind...
The staff also recommended a nice tea and the service is beautifully mixed and matched-cute and adds to the easy comforting ambiance of the shop...
A friend and I went to both 63rd and 81st Street shops on the east side and we haven't been disappointed...and those are a bit bigger and how it's presented...The scenes painted on the walls, the fabric on the seats, the color scheme...it's just so nicely done...there was a baby shower and a bridal shower going on in the back rooms while we were at the one on 63rd one time...the place is very suited for stuff like that...but boy-oh-boy, those yummy scones with the jam and the apple nutella sandwichs are just sooo right...!
Well...there's my opinion...when you try them out, I hope you end up feeling like I do...Five YUMS!!!...lol...
Such a cute place! – I love Alice's Tea Cup. I can't believe it took me four years to finally go since it's right around the corner from my apartment. And now I'm addicted to their scones...and their chocolate cake...and their tea. The only room for improvement that I see is that they should put in a communal table to perhaps cut down on the wait on the weekends....it can get pretty long.
Great brunch and daytime date spot – Guys: If you're looking to win over a lady on your first daytime date, this is the place to do it. The operative word is "adorable" -- think mismatched furnishings, kiddie murals and a whole lot of Upper West Side younglings underfoot. The tea list tends toward herbals and British varieties, but it's without a doubt one of the longest in town. And the food menu is appropriately charming -- don't leave without trying the French toast bites. If you can get a seat for Sunday brunch, you won't be disappointed.
