Welcome to Alice's Tea Cup!
Your adventure awaits!
A Bittersweet Announcement
To Our Loyal Alice's Tea Cuppers,
2020 has been such a difficult year for all of us, everywhere. We hope you haven’t suffered loss and are staying safe, healthy, and as joyful as possible! We here at the Tea Cup have been working to stay afloat as we cannot imagine a New York City without a place to have afternoon tea - minus the pinky up atmosphere - and be faerie dusted, all in one setting.
The 15th of this month marks the 20th anniversary of our first location, west 73rd Street. We have worked through the ups and downs each of those years in NYC presented us, which is no small feat for a female-owned small business, and we owe it all to our loyal customers. We can safely say we've seen it ALL now.
Our determination to survive this challenging time is one of the reasons why we (again) have to close our doors, we hope only temporarily. This upcoming weekend will be our last until further notice. The main reason is that we are concerned for our staff as we see the COVID-19 numbers rise and worry about their commutes and exposures. Just behind that is that we are awaiting whatever the federal government is going to offer small businesses and need it in order to fully set up our outdoor dining in this weather and weather to come; we also need it to properly prepare for indoor dining when we baby-step into reopening so we feel it is done with the utmost safety for everyone, customers and employees alike.
This decision wasn't an easy one. The livelihood of our staff was a big part of staying open as long as we have and starting to set up for winter outdoors, but safety won over in the end. Our hearts are heavy, especially with this decision coming so close to the holidays when Alice’s is a true wonderland for everyone!
Our online shop will remain open, and we will try to get those online orders out as fast as possible, but we ask that you be patient with us as the online store has been operating with only one of us at the helm (and shipping supplies haven't always been easy to rapidly acquire!).
Lastly, let's all look forward to the time when we can fully open, again, and the hot tea flows freely from colorful pots into your dainty teacups, while you enjoy warm scones with jam & cream.♥️
Our wish for you is a safe and peaceful holiday season,
All of Us @ Alice's Tea Cup

A perfect place to host a bridal shower! We enjoyed a wonderful bridal shower at Alice's Tea Cup in the Raspberry Room this weekend. The food was delicious, especially the scones. My vegetarian guests were didn't feel slighted since they loved their lunch too. I live out of town and planned the party via emails. The "sweet" staff was a dream to work with. They took all the stress out of party planning. The bride was thrilled as were all of the other guests. I don't write too many reviews but had to this time. We will return to Alice's the next time we are in NYC! Stay sweet!
Amazing tea place! Great decor with Alice in Wonderland all around. If you have a young child with you, they can wear pretty fairy wings which is very sweet. They have a great tea selection and options for sizes. I can spend hours there chatting with friends and drinking very delicious tea mixes. Definitely try a scone with cream cheese and jam! It is a beautiful combination of flavors that goes hand in hand with a cup of tea. If you're a little in the hungry side, have no fear! You can grab a sandwich for a wide selection. My favorite is with lox. First time I was there and this has stayed with me for a long time. The server wrote on the check "Have a Tea-riffic day!"
What a fun and exciting experience! I went here with my wife on a cold Friday morning and we decided to pop in. I really enjoyed the tea selection they had. Very long and overwhelming but the server provided great insight to her favorites and what we should order based on what we like. We decided with Alice's blend and it was to die for! We got their scones which were absolutely delicious and their clotted cream and jelly is amazing!! I had their eggs benedict and my wife had their eggs benedict florentine. I really enjoyed the scones the most that we had to order some after we left. We also bought the Alice's tea Blend and the Birthday Blend. Definitely love the atmosphere and it's just a fun place for tea :)
