Scones at Alice’s Tea Cup – NYC
David should get an award for waking up at seven in the morning on a Saturday to go with me to a HomeGoods shopping event, and then going for tea and scones at Alice’s Tea Cup. Not all men are that secure in their manhood. In any case, if you find yourself at Alice’s Tea Cup in the next few months, with or without your significant other, their strawberry and peach scone ($10 for 2 scones and a pot of tea) is perfect for the warmer weather. Light, crumbly, and studded with fruit, it’ll satisfy your scone craving but won’t sit in your stomach like a paperweight. It’s tasty enough to eat alone, but as most scones are, it’s better with clotted cream and preserves.

The pumpkin scones are my favorite, though they are enormous and I can only eat about 1/4. =)
Props to David (aka Esther)!
Don’t forget to raise ur pinky when you drink tea!
@esther – I got the pumpkin too (behind the strawberry/peach in the pic), but it wasn’t as crunchy and also the flavor felt a little heavy for the summer. In the winter it’s probably much better. And yes, I will tell Esther!
@someguy – No, no, that is a serious faux pas!
OMG, I just read on Daily News Online that one of the workers there is charged with kiddy porn. SICK!
The link: do not eat before reading this.
@someguy – Despicable. Well, at least he’s still not there (“was once a dishwasher”).
