Wander into this sequestered basement and you’ll be transported to a story land inspired by Lewis Carroll. First, pass through the quirky gift-boutique-cum-bakeshop, where you can browse Wonderland–themed knickknacks along with dense, delicious scones and muffins. Proceed farther in (not easy on weekends) and you’ll discover a sweet room serving big brunch plates (sandwiches, salads, eggs) and the full teatime monty ($25). It’s a fairy tale indeed, except for the service, which can be slow.

A bit touristy, but still a worthy NYC-establishment, Alice's Tea Cup is a great location to bring kids and grownups alike. For any little girl (or boy) that grew up playing tea, this restaurant is a dream. The scones are amazing and the tea towers are adorable. I first went when I was around 14, and felt so classy - happy to say that over a decade later this is still around. Definitely planning on visiting with my little cousins.

This place makes a damn fine scone and has an insanely vast assortment of teas. (The tea I got was very very good.) I was expecting WAY more ambiance than was delivered though. There was just one sad looking mural on the wall. It's Alice in Wonderland THEMED people! Bring on the crazy decor! I'm told the UES one is where to go for that. Anyway the food and tea were good but I was underwhelmed by the space.
