'Alice's Teacup'-Restaurant Review

'Alices Teacup' is one of my favourite place to go to for tea.  They currently have three locations across Manhattan, but I always go to the 'Chapter 1' which is located on 73rd Street and Columbus Avenue.

It is a relaxed, cosy little tea shop with friendly staff.  They have a huge selection of teas to choose from, probably the biggest I have seen in New York.  They serve breakfast and lunch, but my favourite item on the menu is 'Alice's Afternoon Tea'.  There are 3 types of afternoon tea to choose from and I enjoy sharing the 'Mad Hatter' tea with a friend.

Make sure you go hungry as the portions are huge.  You get a choice of 2 pots of tea, 2 sandwiches, 3 scones with cream and jam, a big slice of cake and a selection of cookies.  The tea costs $45 for two people, and considering how much food you get I think it's really good value.

The 'Mad Hatter' Afternoon Tea 
The food is delicious, especially the scones and cakes.  I have had afternoon tea here a few times now and still haven't managed to eat everything.  Although I do like taking home a goodie bag of the leftovers!

There are lots of other options available at Alice's Teacup and you don't have to pig out to enjoy the experience.  They have a good selection of salads and sandwiches as well as a soup of the day.  You can also enjoy the cakes and scones individually too.  

I would definitely recommend Alice's Teacup and always enjoy my visits there.  For more information please visit
