Afternoon Tea for a 9 year old girl
I want to take my 9 year old out for afternoon tea this weekend. I was thinking of Alice's Tea Cup, but I remember reading somewhere there's a place that does afternoon tea catering to children. I tried a search but didn't come up with anything. Any ideas?
Depends on your 9yo.
Bemelman's at Carlyle is perfect for a dress-up, fancy tea - we took my daughter & her visiting friend for a "special" day; excellent food and good behavior expected. I imagine Plaza or Russian Tea Room tea experiences are similar, though the intimacy of the Carlyle room made it more special.
American Girl is a favorite birthday party place for my daughters' friends; the food is not good, and experience is cool with your American Girl doll.
Her favorite repeat tea place remains Alice's Tea Cup; it's go the perfect balance of more casual and comfortable than a "fancy" place, yet it's about the "tea" and food, rather than about the dolls and play.
