Wonder Land, the new offshoot of Alice’s Tea Cup located inside Books of Wonder (212-242-8118), teased us with its opening a few weeks ago, but is now finally ready to launch this Sunday. “We’re going to be having a party and kids’ costume contest,” manager Ariel Gonzalez tells us. “Throughout the day we’ll have our sweets and scones, mini cupcakes and ice cream. It’ll just be an event to let everyone we’re here.”
For now, the eatery will have a limited menu based off what’s at the Alice’s Tea Cup locations: cold sandwiches, pastries, scones, and other sweet treats. “Down the road we’re going to have soups and salad. And we’ll have milkshakes and ice cream in flavors like peppermint crunch and triple espresso, which we don’t have at the other locations.” The spot will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays, and 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekends.
“We’ll be working with the store on events and we’ll tie in treats to go along with that,” says Gonzalez. “They’ll have an Addams Family reading over Halloween and we’ll do Halloween-inspired snacks.” Time to corral up the trick-or-treaters.
