Alice’s Tea Cup – Wonderland tea spot

This is one of my favorite places in the city. Alice’s Tea Cup is a Alice in Wonderland-themed restaurant with some of the best scones and tea in all of New York. My aunt lives a block away from this Upper West Side location and every time I visit her I stop here first. The beauty of Alice’s is that it is a great place for both children and adults alike. With their mis-matched tea cup sets and towers of scones or sandwiches, you really do get to escape to wonderland for a bit. 

They have an amazing breakfast and lunch menu but my favorite thing to do is go with a friend and get their tea & scone (Large!) option. You get a 6-cup pot of tea and a choice of two scones (flavors depend on the day but the buttermilk is always a classic and the blueberry cream cheese is out of this world!). They have a very extensive tea list – a few of my favorites are the Mauritius, Alice’s Signature Tea Blend, and the Lavender Earl Grey. Afterwards you can wander a few blocks over to Central Park and take a nap in your tea- and scone-infused haze. 

They also have two other locations on the Upper East Side that are just as fabulous.
