We went to Alice's Tea Cup for brunch and had a very filling meal and magical experience for the little one. The dishes were reasonably sized and the environment was fantastic.

The calm comfortable atmosphere made my day! The scone I had with cream was better than I expected. The tier display of the afternoon tea made me feel special. They had many vegetarian options and labeled the,m for easy ordering.

I've been here twice now and both times it did not disappoint! This is not the place for a diner breakfast--but one that focuses on tea and baked goods in a cozy dining room. Make a reservation to avoid a wait.

Hoping to be seated for a late lunch at Alice's Tea Cup Chapter One (because they do not take same day reservations), the 50 min wait did not deter us and we spent the time around the corner in line at Levain waiting for cookies....More

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.
