I’ve created a new little tradition here in New York. Every so often, Cathal and I make a Sunday evening trip to Alice’s Tea Cup for a slice of cake and a cup of tea. If you’re into places that are extremely instagrammable and have a huge menu to crave your sweet tooth, then you’ll enjoy a visit to Alice’s Tea Cup. Theres 3 locations but the best one in my opinion is 156 East 64th Street. Its a popular place for kids birthdays and hen parties (you might have even spotted it in Amy Schumer’s Trainwreck) but for good reason. The decor is based on an Alice in Wonderland theme with some of the tables made from vintage sewing machines.
Everytime I visit, I wish I was a tea drinker because they have the biggest list of flavored teas to choose from along with a yummy cocktail menu. But my favorite thing to do here, is go to the cake display case to make the very hard decision of what flavour cake to have. So far I’ve sampled the raspberry chocolate chip cake and the chocolate butter cream cake and let me tell you, neither have disappointed! I only wish my Mom and Sister would come visit so I could take them here for the perfect girlie afternoon tea with scones.
Of course, after you’re finished you have to wander around the Upper East Side to drool at the beautiful apartments and get a glimpse into what life was like for Blair and Serena!
