We went to Alice's Tea Cup for Breakfast, the crepes with the fresh fruit was out of this world. They have the best scones that I have had. And so many different kinds of tea. Really unique place.

We brought our children to NYC last summer and did not make it to the restaurant. This year it was a much do on our list. I expected a whimsical happy place. The atmosphere was drab. The servers seemed bothered to have to do their jobs. We were seated and waited almost 20 minutes before a server took our order.... More

Alice's tea cup was on my must visit list whilst in New York, as it looked so sweet and is such a great idea. From the outside it looked gorgeous, and inside was ok but I feel like SO much more can be done to make it a special experience!! Service was fine, we ordered tea and scones but to... More

They have GREAT scones! Huge tea menu...hot tea isn't really my thing but still found a couple I like there. Really enjoyed breakfast there...yummy bacon and the potato/chicken hash stuff is a nice change. The decòr is fun if you're into Alice in Wonderland.

The best scone in town comes from Alice's. Chocolate Chip Salted Caramel or Pumpkin or Blueberry or Lemon...omg to die for! Pair it with any one of the magnificent teas and you'll be salivating to return. There are three locations 2 UES, and 1 UWS-I have been to all and can recommend them. However, I think my favorite was the... More

I came here twice a few years ago and really enjoyed the experience. The tea and scones were delicious and so were their burgers! The decor is really unique and I want to go back soon in order to update my review! Great restaurant and concept.

I've eaten at Alice's Tea Cup two times and each time the food was delicious and the tea was brewed with integrity and care. Price is moderate, yet affordable for the memories you create there!

Wandered in after spending the day at the Natural History Museum, but not wanting to pay the prices! The largest selection of tea I've ever seen, most of which I'd never heard of (but the staff were on hand to make recommendations which was very helpful). Very quaint little place with an Alice in Wonderland theme, with very large cups... More

Our first trip here and it won't be our last. Service was great, food was delicious, and order was very quick to arrive at the table. Very nice atmosphere for little ones. Recommendation, make a reservation.

Visited this restaurant with my wife and 3 daughters. Loved the concept of the place and how the hostess sprinkles fairy dust on the kids before sitting down. But, they did not have enough fairy wings for our 3 girls, took a long time to be seated when they were not busy, and an even longer time for the waitress... More

Neighbourhood Profile
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, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
