      Beautiful old building and a classic presentation of teas and goodies. A European-style re-charge spot.

      First the good stuff--the place is beautiful in an understated way; the food is good--there are pastries, scones, and sandwiches. The tea itself is very good (all Marriage Freres, I think) and while there are not hundreds on the menu as at some other places, there are certainly enough to choose from, green and black, China, Japan, and India. There are even five (!) varieties of Earl Grey. The service is also very good. There are only two complaints. One--the place is filled with the pungent odors of onion soup and grilled cheese sandwiches--which kind of ruins the experience of a fragrant jasmine tea. Two--the noise level is deafening. I tried to spend a quiet peaceful hour with a book and a cup of tea. There were about fifteen people there, mostly women, and at any time I could hear distinctly every word spoken by at least five of them. Of course that New Yorkers do not know how to control their volume is not the fault of the excellent proprietors of this place, but is does detract from the experience unfortunately.

      I went here for brunch once, the food was very good; albeit a little pricey. The tea was excellent. It's an adorable place; just a nice place to sit and chat. They only take cash though.

      This is one of my very favorite places in Manhattan to sit and drink tea and dream. It's ideal for a rainy afternoon cup, and they have a fascinating array of teas from around the world, as well as good, simple things to eat. You definitely feel as if you're in a chalet in Switzerland; simple, homey, a little rustic.

      Nice looking quaint place. They need to increase their hours though! Service very good. Serves meals, has a variety of pastries for sale. Teas are all loose leaf but getting proper descriptions of tea can be difficult (all servers are japanese and have trouble with english or perhaps it's a cultural issue?) but they are good quality.
