Guide Review - Alice's Tea Cup

Alice's Tea Shop was exactly as I imagined -- the front room offers take out tea, as well as themed gifts (ranging from tea pots to underwear). Inside, there are photos depicting scenes from "Alice in Wonderland" and lines from Lewis Carroll's memorable tale wind along the walls. The banana-walnut and pumpkin scones($8 for 2 with tea) were crisp on the outside and moist and delicious inside. Choosing from over 100 teas ($4 per pot) can be a challenge, but it was made a little easier by their helpful guide. Sandwiches & salads were fresh & tasty. The croque madame($7) was served on raisin bread with a salad and the smoked chicken ($10) with apples & goat cheese was great too. The children's menu offers baby food($4) and snacks($5-6).

Worst experience ever, Member SofiaGuerrero

Alice´s Tea Cup is far from being a Tea experience. The tea is really bad The atmosphere is dark and old The sandwiches are the worst you can ever eat. And it is extremely expensive! We paid 50dls per person.
