Tea & Sympathy

108 Greenwhich Ave. New York, NY 10011 | West Village | 212-807-8329

Location Description:

As third-wave coffee shops continue to pop up all over the place, it's obvious there's not much demand for quality tea shops. Tea & Sympathy, in the heart of the West Village, isn’t necessarily looking to change that, but they do offer legitimate British-style tea (including their own blends or a few choice British brands.) Moreover, the joint offers traditional British food, too. Bangers and mash are a highlight, as is the Yorkshire pudding. Go to lunch, though, to get the Afternoon Tea for One, which includes finger sandwiches, tons of scones with cream and jam, cakes, and a big pot of hot tea. Isn't this how royalty stereotypically enjoy themselves? --Shane Barnes
