Success! Thanks for posting your review of Tea & Sympathy. You’ve done the world some good today.

One of my long time favorites

Despite being incredibly small and cramped, Tea & Sympathy is one of my faves in the neighborhood. Some of the food e.g breakfast is better then you'll find in some parts of England. The only drawback is the amount of families that come in. Don't get me wrong, I like kids. The problem is the space doesn't make it easy for them, and the result is they don't make it easy for you.

Went here once ... crowded ... rude staff ... and I've had better teas at danal in the east village and la bergamote in chelsea ... even sara beth's in the chelsea market would be a much better choice. This place is strictly for the tourist trade who are taken in by the pleasant setting. I don't give up easy and went a second time ... it was even worse. Avoid this place as well as the fish 'n chips shop next doo... view more

Cozy little tea shop with very good food

Go here if you're not in a rush because the limited seating likely means you'll be waiting for a table. The food itself was delicious, and traditionally British. We had a great chicken pie and the Sunday roast with beef. Bring your appetite because the portions are huge, and decidedly butter-ific. \r \r The two negatives: kitchen ventilation is not great so we smelled like the restaurant for the rest of the day... view more

nice tea and interesting cakes

So Saturday morning, I was excited to have scouted out a new lunch spot to explore. My sister happened to be visiting, and she is vegetarian... and I'm pretty much a walking dictionary for dining, unless you are one of my vegetarian friends, in which case, you're SOL. I peeked at the food menu, and thought, hey, this place could work for vegetarians! Albeit the menu did seem a little small, but we went anyway. ... view more

Rudest . . . staff . . . anywhere

Sullen, lumpen, potato-faced girls that must have come to the States thinking they could get work as au pairs, and ended up here. They think they’re posh, but they’re all East Enders and Liverpudlians – and it shows. And it’s obvious they take their cue from the owner. Never polite, she’s long since gone over the edge into psychosis, shrieking at everyone who dares set foot in her establishmentment. It used to be goo... view more

Cozy up at Tea&Sympathy

There's something about Tea & Sympathy! That's is all I'd like to say. But wait, Citysearch wants me to say more. That's okay, I understand Citysearch. But alas, I've said what I needed to say. Shall I use loremipsumnow?

Best brunch in the city

If I could give Tea & Sympathy 6 stars, I would. The tea is the best in New York and the food is equally delicious. The waitstaff are always friendly and helpful, even when the place is packed. Be sure to try the crumpets and scones, they're to die for. The quality of the food is well worth the wait, which can be more than an hour on weekends.

Tea and UNsympathy!

\r Excuse the title, but this was one of the most insane and grossly disappointing experiences I've had in my 10+ years here in NYC. \r Yes, I understand quirky charms, and I completely agree with policies to ensure that small dining establishments can seat diners fairly, like not seating your party until everyone is present. \r But this place has gone off the deep end.\r I met a friend of mine who was not feeli... view more

A little bit of old world England

I've seen a lot of complaints of rudeness, something that I have never experienced. Nikki the owner, can be gruff at times, but is usually very charming and the waitstaff have always been lovely. The food is a bit overpriced, but I've never ordered anything that I didn't enjoy immensely and the tea is brewed perfectly. Make sure that you don't leave without have the Sticky toffee pudding, it's to die for!
