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.

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!

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.

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.
Any gluten free/dairy free sweets? Bringing two celiac little girls--can we bring a gf/df treat to enjoy with their tea?
