This is a wonderful place to take your child if they are interested in having tea. The atmosphere is whimsical and caters to kids. The selections are great and the service as well.

For a restaurant that is geared towards young girls, lots of adults come to this spot too. The decor is just like Lewis Carroll depicted in his novels. The tea is good, a huge selection. I suggest getting the hot food sandwiches rather than the...More

Looking for a spot of tea we journeyed to this quaint tea house for breakfast. We were not disappointed. Breakfast was pleasing for all and the varieties of tea were very well received.

Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the
Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a
quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of
downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the
city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the
American Museum of Natural History, which has been
welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for
over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center,

Not at the outlet at west end. You will to go down a flight of steps to get to the cafe. They have another outlet in the east side but I have not been there, so not sure. Perhaps you can give them a call and check.
Any gluten free/dairy free sweets? Bringing two celiac little girls--can we bring a gf/df treat to enjoy with their tea?
