Small and nice café in upper west side. Great variety of teas. We also tried scones, banana bread and croque madame. All very good. Good lunch option after visiting one of the many museums in this area.

Not at the outlet at west end. You will to go down a flight of steps to get to the cafe. They have another outlet in the east side but I have not been there, so not sure. Perhaps you can give them a call and check.
