I LOVE Alice’s Tea Cup! It’s a little tea shop with a whimsical Alice in Wonderland theme, and they have three locations: E. 64th St, E 81st St, and W. 73rd St. I’d only gone to the 64th St. location but recently my sister and I stopped in for afternoon tea at the UWS location. It was fab! They have a tea menu that’s about 20 pages long with every variety you can imagine, and the food is surprisingly good. It’s perfect for a girly afternoon of tea and scones in a unique atmosphere. Girls of ALL ages will love this place, from little kids to older folks and everywhere in between-anyone will be charmed (even guys, but you’ll have to drag them against their will most likely). Even without all the lovely and cute decor floating around, I would eat here just for the moist scones and flavorful tea!
|Love the sweet little entrance! And it was so pretty when they turned on the little fairy lights wrapped around the railing.|
|So many different types of tea! It’s a tea lovers heaven.|
|All sorts of fun gifts-teapots, travel mugs, cookbooks. And tiaras of course.|
|Lots of pretty baked goods.|
|I love the little things they put on top of the teapot to hold the cover in place. No idea what it’s called, but mine was a cat! And my sister had a cute little butterfly.|
|Buttermilk scones with clotted cream and jam. Um, yum. I wish I were English so this would be a daily meal for me.|
|Mason jars for water cups! So charming.|
|Pretty vintage looking teacups. I had the almond flavored black tea and even though I’m a total coffee fanatic, I loved it.|
|A quote from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland written on the wall.|
|Alice mural on the wall.|
|Love these doors.|
Places like this are part of the reason I love NYC so much! It’s the perfect place to stop in for a little pick me up during a day of shopping, or to just sit and relax with a book and get a great little snack. Highly recommend!
