Prince Tea House

View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

This East Village location of Prince Tea House has nicely-upholstered seating, wainscot paneling, and chandeliers—all of which gives this place the feel of a restaurant you’d find inside a fancy department store. Their varied menu has things like takoyaki, a classic turkey club sandwich, and a bunch of desserts (purple yam soufflé, for example). They also host a relatively affordable afternoon tea—$30 for one, served every day—that includes atypical open-faced sandwiches like one with pastrami and melted swiss. The best item is the warm, fluffy scone with clotted cream. You’ll get a teapot all to yourself, which comes on top of a candle to keep your tea warm throughout your meal.
