"High" Tea on Saturday

pixee22 May 4, 2007 09:03 AM

Want to go to traditional tea next Saturday, but I only knew of the Plaza. Are there any other places in the city for tea service, and preferably one where a toddler will not be frowned upon?

    there are many other hotels that do afternoon tea, but i'm not sure if they are appropriate for a toddler. i have recently been to the St. Regis, which was lovely. But i don't think it's the most toddler-friendly place. How about Alice's tea Cup (multiple locations)? They have different afternoon tea options, and are very kid friendly (i think they even offer a kid's tea).

        The Mandarin Oriental has afternoon tea on Saturdays. The food, tea and view are fanastic and I think you would be fine bringing your little one.

          If it is convenient to head uptown, the Harlem Tea Room offers a high tea. Their website is www.harlemtearoom.com.
