Alice’s Tea Cup locations
Alice’s Tea Cup’s locations are inspired by Alice in Wonderland and they are also called ‘chapters’. Chapter I is on the Upper West Side, Chapter II is on the Upper East Side and the takeaway location Alice’s To Go is located in Brooklyn. The interiors are different in each but all reference scenes from the book or film. The menus are pretty much the same and include sweet snacks, sandwiches, soups, salads and main meals. There’s a huge assortment of tea from around the world, served in quaint teapots.
Alice’s Afternoon Tea
High Tea at Alice’s Tea Cup is very popular and you can also have lunch. You can pick one of three different variations of Alice’s Afternoon Tea, depending on the number of people in your group. “The Nibble” for one, “The Madhatter” for two to four and “The Jabberwocky” for a large hungry group. All are served with a pot of tea per person (you can, of course, pick the type), sandwiches, freshly baked scones and a selection of cake and cookies. All presented on wonderful platters. The sandwiches are fresh and the scones are still warm from the oven.
Alice’s Tea Cup is a favourite with the mothers and nannies of the Upper East and Upper West Side. It is indeed a great place to bring the kids, especially for the tasty finger food! However, this doesn’t mean that Alice’s Tea Cup is only suitable for children. The locations have been thoughtfully set up so that there’s a specific space for parents with children and another for adults, where they can sit in peace and enjoy their high tea.
Enjoying high tea at Alice’s Tea Cup isn’t cheap but a fun experience nevertheless. You can also have breakfast, brunch or lunch there. If you want to reserve for high tea, then be sure to do so at least a couple of days in advance. The locations are very popular, which means that you probably can’t just drop by on any given day.
