can't wait to go back... – I live in LA and am lucky enough to get to NYC often. I'm now obsessed with Alice's Tea Cup. As if the ones on the upper west side and the one on 64th weren't good enough, enter Chapter 3. People always talk about the restaurants in NYC and my boyfriend and I laugh that the one we can't wait to get back to is Alice's. The pumkin scone is enough to fly 3000 miles for but the grilled ham and cheese sandwich? forget it. I even like the side salad it comes with and I don't like greens! If you live in NYC, do yourself a favor and get to Alice's asap.
Most Adorable Place to Eat lunch alone or with friends – I was happy to find out I didn't have to leave my neighborhood for the best scones I have ever had. I love how happy this place is!
so so awful – Being a breakfast buff I was more then excited to head to Alice's Tea Cup for a lovely Sunday brunch with friends... BAD IDEA. First you have to wait a lifetime for a table (easily an hour on sat/sun morning) ok, so i'll wait for a table, no big deal, its nyc and its supposedly a great place... I can handle a wait....but then once seated you assume things would get better....Um , wrong again. The atmosphere was terrible, lighting...awful, service even worse...and the food...blah... You are way better off staying home or going anywhere, i mean anywhere else!!!! Then again if you like slow service, bad food and paying a lot for both, then its all you!
Editorial Review – Charming and kitschy cafe offers an array of loose leaf teas, pastries and meal options in a laid back atmosphere.
Best food at a shower I've ever had! – Alice's Teacup has some fo the best cakes, cupcakes, and scones I've ever had. They hosted a wonderful bridal shower for my friend and I was so delighted with the service and the food I just had to write a review. If you are looking for a wonderful afternoon lunch or a quaint place for a party or a shower, look no more. I highly recommend.
