This adorable Upper West Side joint proves that afternoon tea isn’t just for the British, or the afternoon, or girls! “I don’t mind saying that for a long time I longed to have a girl,” says Elina Furman. “Fortunately, my son loves clothes and restaurants that are more ornate.” You can enjoy the usual assortment of scones and sandwiches at breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The tea list features classic standbys as well, but also uncommon blends from all over the world. The Cameroon Fannings is grown at 3,300 feet on a volcano, the Rooibos Admiral’s Cup has red bush herb and chocolate essence, and the Gyokuro is picked once a year in Japan. We love the Mother-to-be tea, which has a raspberry leaf base and improves digestion. Alice’s Tea Cup also makes custom cakes that are perfect for celebrations as whimsical as Carroll’s Wonderland.
