Planning a trip to NYC is always an amazingly fun activity, knowing the possibilities are endless regarding all that we can do in a given day. We only had one day to spend there and we wanted to make it worth our time and also wanted to do something that everyone would enjoy.
As we were looking at all the possibilities that we had within our reach, a dear friend suggested a nice place to stop and enjoy something to eat as we explore. A place that she and her daughter had enjoyed as well. That place was Alice’s Tea Cup.
There were several locations to choose from and once we narrowed down which place was closest to our sight-seeing activities, we made definite plans to go, after getting the approval of the rest of the family! We went to Chapter II, the location on E 64th St., by the way!
When we walked into the restaurant, we were immediately taken in by the whimsical decor. A very quaint, peaceful and even magical place to enter into.
We were taken to a small table with a variety of beautiful tea cups placed on the table. The variety of teas available to try was seemingly endless, but we managed to narrow down a perfect choice for our family, Mango Flip. Our server was extremely helpful when we had certain questions about the tea, it’s origin and the type of flavor that we would experience. We also loved this tea so much that we bought some extra to share with our dear friends we would be visiting within the next week.
We loved the choices of food as well. So many sandwiches, burgers and salads to choose from, and all with their unique style. These were not choices you can find just anywhere. They were true to the Alice in Wonderland theme, and we felt like we were most definitely living in quite the dream.
As we finished our meal and prepared to leave, we began a conversation with Ramon, the manager of Alice’s Tea Cup. He asked where we were from and we talked about our journey, living and traveling in an RV. He was so excited to learn more, so we chatted for a few minutes and talked about how we do what we do. Since it was later in the day and the restaurant had a plentiful amount of scones left, he offered us two boxes of scones for our journey! They were so amazingly good and Ramon was a pleasure to talk to!
Alice’s Tea Cup is definitely on our list of places to return and hope that we have the opportunity to make it back again. If you are planning a trip to NYC in the future, we would like to encourage you to give Alice’s Tea Cup a try.
Tea, scones, wonderful food, amazing people and a setting that provides a unique and whimsical experience. All within walking distance from the heart and pulse of NYC. What more reason do you need?
Beauty and Blessing Awaits!
