As you know, I just love Afternoon Tea. It is such a fun, relaxing experience, and I enjoyed many with my Mom at a local tea house. The latest place in the city I have tried is the Garden Court Cafe in the Asia Society and Museum. I had read in an email I received that they served tea here, and wanted to check it out.
The cafe is very lovely, open air and lots of light. They also serve an Asian fare here, which I would love to come back and try. Since it is so near many of the museums on 5th Avenue, this is a fun place to do lunch. You do not have to pay to enter the museum if you just want to dine at the cafe.
Very elegant setting, I was sitting in direct sun, so I apologize for the shadows on my photos
The scones were tiny, but good, and I had a nice array of items to enjoy with my scone
The sandwiches are curry chicken salad, mini crab cake, roasted vegetable, smoke salmon and cucumber
I loved the traditional tea pot!
Almost too pretty to eat!
The desserts were lovely as well, more candy items than dessert, but very tasty
The Afternoon Tea is $30 per person, High Tea is $40 which includes Prosecco or Sake. I really want to try their Dim sum menu in the future. This was a lovely tea, very relaxing, and I will be sure to visit here again. I would highly recommend to anyone to give it a try!
