I so wanted to rave. $18.00 for a cup of ok tea and a scone that tasted like whatever was in the fridge near it. Just does not cut it. Staff was nice though not very attentive. The front display case was full of goodies...More

Bright, cheerful and an amazing attention to details. My teenage daughter and I had a leisurely tea and scones breakfast. We took a long time over the tea menu and then wished we could try all the scones. Definately would stop there again.

The food is quite good and portions are large. Everyone is pleasant and the decor is charming. Be hungry, especially for the sweet goodies! Of course the tea is exceptional!

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

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.
