We met a friend for brunch on a Sunday morning. Alice's Tea Cup was busy but we were able to get a table. The restaurant was, unsurprising, an Alice in Wonderland theme. They specialise in tea and have a very extensive list, served in either...More

It's a lovely place for brunch, tea, or light lunch. I will say it seems to be a popular place for kids, so if that's something you don't enjoy, keep that in mind. The staff is knowledgeable about the varieties of tea, and the scones...More

This is a little cafe that is usually packed to the brim! Be prepared to wait if you are coming on a weekend or at peak lunch times. They have a cookbook for sale so you can make their delicious scones at home and you...More

It is as magical inside as it appears from the outside. So whimsical that you might find yourself on the lookout for Alice and her friends. Not to worry, the Mad Hatter is nowhere to be found! More tea choices than you can imagine, and...More

Not at the outlet at west end. You will to go down a flight of steps to get to the cafe. They have another outlet in the east side but I have not been there, so not sure. Perhaps you can give them a call and check.
