Alice's Tea Cup Tips (2)

Alice's Teacup: Wonderful tea selection

There are two locations, one on the Upper West Side and a newer one on the Upper East Side. Personally, I like the one on the Upper East Side better, but I'm not really sure why (both are cute and cozy with an Alice in Wonderland theme). Both locations are open for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and tea. I've been for tea and breakfast and both are wonderful! Be prepared to have a difficult time making a tea selection- they have about 100. Also, make sure to make reservations if you want to go for Sunday brunch. It's a great place to go alone, with a friend, with a lot of friends, a family get together, and they do large parties too.

Favorite Dish Tea: all are delicious, I particularly like any of the Rooibos
Scones: they have different flavours every day- they're on the heavy side but none are too sweet
Smoked chicken sandwich with goat cheese and apples
Crepes: light and tasty

Alice's Tea Cup: Tea Time in Wonderland

A cute little place for tea time, so cute that it's always packed with people, and sometimes during the weekend you have to wait for up to 45 minutes for a table for two. You can't call for a reservation, they can only take a reservation for a party larger than 6. The entrance part of the restaurant is filled with cute notebooks, a wall full with tin jars of teas that you can buy to take home, tea pots and some children's fairy tale books, butterfly wings and tutus. The decor is filled with pictures of Alice in Wonderland, as well as writings in colorful chalks taken from the book Alice in Wonderland. All the tea cups and furnitures are so unique (because none of them match each other and some of the tables were actually old Singer's sewing machine tables), they creates this shabby-chic ambiance to the restaurant. Their main feature is the afternoon tea menu, as well as regular sandwiches.

Favorite Dish Of course the afternoon tea menu and they have three different options: the nibble, the mad hatter, or the jabberwocky. The nibble is usually enough for one person who is eating alone, while the mad hatter is good for two people. The jabberwocky is good for 3 or more people, because you have more options than the other two. The scones are different everyday and definitely to die for and two of my favorite ones are the pumpkin and berries (when they have it). They serve the scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam.
