General Reservation Policies

As a small, locally-based institution, we limit the reservations we take as to encourage you to make that spur of the moment decision and walk into any Alice’s Tea Cup, any time. In limiting the number of reservations we accept, we find we actually make more room available for walk-in visitors.

Friday through Sunday

We accept reservations for parties of six or more*.

Monday through Thursday

We accept reservations parties of any size*.

*For parties of six or more guests...

We will delight you with a full English tea service. We believe that tea time is magic, your escape from hectic city life, an occasion to bask in the company of friends and loved ones. For your party of six or more people, we’ll present to you an array of sweet treats, savory sandwiches and perfectly brewed pots of tea from around the world. Our tea service options are listed at the bottom of this page.

Depending on your party size, you may need a private space to host your event or reservation for an additional fee.
Private rooms are available at our Chapter I and Chapter II locations. We rent out these rooms by the hour, and require a non-refundable room rental deposit to confirm the reservation. We also offer the option to rent our entire Chapter III location.
