I found a roach in my soup. On my way out, another customer saw a rat. The waitress wasn't shocked to see that. I'm not coming back.

Located right next to their restaurant, Carry On Tea and Sympathy is a small shop packed with tea sets, candy and a varied assortment of items from the UK. Great for tea enthusiasts!

This restaurant is very small so you may want to make reservations. It is very cramped during peak times. The bathroom is also very small. Food: I got the bangers and mash and it was good, the ginger tea was good. There are some specific...More

I like to visit whenever I'm in New York, because it does tea properly, and you can get British biscuits and jelly babies from the shop next door. (Although the prices are higher than they are in Australia, which surprises me.) It seems to be...More

Interesting little shop sandwiched between the restaurant Tea & Sympathy and the Fish and Chip shop this is the heart of the Tea & Sympathy brand. All good fun and lively it is stacked with presents for all those anglophiles or homesick brits in NYC.

If you're from across the pond eventually you'll need some real chocolate. Once you have English chocolate you'll probably not enjoy the waxy Mexican made American version. I've never met a UK person who said otherwise. How about some HP Sauce? Check! Pudding? Check! This...More

Having lived abroad in London for the last year you quickly miss a good cuppa and proper bacon, non of this streaky stuff. This is my second time to Carry on Tea & Sympathy and it will be a tradition for every visit to NYC....More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you

British comfort food in a cozy Greenwich Village location. The Scene Decked out like an exaggerated version of a suburban British living room--tacky wallpaper, an extensive teapot collection, lots of ceramic figures, Vera Lynne on the stereo--Tea & Sympathy serves as a cozy home away from home for expats. Sometimes it's a little too cozy, in fact; space is limited, and you can expect to be moved around during your meal to make room for other diners. The friendly but no-nonsense waitstaff is always ready with a smile and a comeback line. The Food The menu offers perfect renditions of such Brit classics as Welsh rarebit (thick bread with melted cheese, tomato and mustard), steak and kidney pie, Scotch egg (hard-boiled egg, deep-fried in pastry), tweed kettle pie (trout and cod wrapped in bacon and served in a pie) and bangers and mash (sausages and mashed potato). Any one of these will fill you up for the day; for those on a diet or just faint-hearted, there are lighter sandwiches and salads, too.
