This place could be so great but every time we visit we wonder why we bother. On this occasion I arranged for 5 ex-colleagues to meet for tea and scones. Two of them came straight from a delayed flights from London and Alabama respectively to...More

We showed up without a reservation on the weekend 3pm. We were given a table in 20 odd minutes. The restaurant is absolutely small. So if you have an elaborate wardrobe/ child car seat etc; they wouldn't really find room. Tall/fat may really have a...More

Literally. We were a party of 3 and just as a previous reviewer mentioned were seated at a table for 2 with an extra chair. Made our tea experience miserable. At $38/person I wanted some elbow and leg room. Airline seating is more spacious! If...More

Loved this place & will return when I'm back in NYC. Adorable atmosphere, great food. I had the English breakfast & tea & scones, which was way too much food but whatever, worth it.

I’ve been here several times and always enjoyed it, but it’s been a few years. I stopped in for afternoon tea on my own yesterday. It’s a very small place, just one room, and the decibel level was very high. There was no good reason...More

At 3pm on a Tuesday this very small place was filled and we felt relieved that a table was waiting for us as we had made a reservation. "Afternoon tea" for two was very generously done and most delicious. After choosing from a very long...More

We celebrated my friends birthday brunch here last Sunday. The space is tiny with about 7 or 8 tables very close together with an old school charm. The food and service were excellent. I enjoyed the scrambled eggs with salmon and grain toast, and I...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
