Loved this place & will return when I'm back in NYC. Adorable atmosphere, great food. I had the English breakfast & tea & scones, which was way too much food but whatever, worth it.

This was my second visit to NYC and my second visit to Tea & Sympathy. I suggest this amazing eatery to everyone I know going to the city. Though the space is small and intimate, the food packs a wallop of flavor. My favorite dish,...More

I’ve been here several times and always enjoyed it, but it’s been a few years. I stopped in for afternoon tea on my own yesterday. It’s a very small place, just one room, and the decibel level was very high. There was no good reason...More

At 3pm on a Tuesday this very small place was filled and we felt relieved that a table was waiting for us as we had made a reservation. "Afternoon tea" for two was very generously done and most delicious. After choosing from a very long...More

We celebrated my friends birthday brunch here last Sunday. The space is tiny with about 7 or 8 tables very close together with an old school charm. The food and service were excellent. I enjoyed the scrambled eggs with salmon and grain toast, and I...More

We travel with friends from the UK, so we made reservations here after spotting it on a few review sites. What a treat for all of us! Classic British food made beautifully - there's an option for "high tea," but we opted for regular meals,...More

I am fairly obsessed with English tea service so I have been dying to come here. I finally found time to come for afternoon tea in between my clients last Thursday and was not disappointed. The restaurant is located in a small space in the...More

Had the afternoon tea. A little expensive, but it's the city and you're paying for the experience as well. Great selection of tea. Reviews are dead on, it IS tiny inside, but very quaint. Know before going that American Express and Discover are not accepted...More

West Village
Stretching from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River, the
West Village is one of the city’s most coveted
addresses. Full of trendy shops, historic taverns, and
cozy restaurants set amid 19th century architecture,
this neighbourhood has a unique old-world feel. You
won’t find a more picturesque location in Manhattan.
Without the traditional city grid layout, it’s easy to
get lost here, but that’s part of the fun as you
