Alice’s Tea Cup Set to Bring Its Whimsy to Brooklyn Heights This Spring


A slice of wonderland is coming to Brooklyn this spring when quirky cafe Alice’s Tea Cup opens in Brooklyn Heights.

The storefront windows of their new location at 43 Hicks Street are currently papered over as the work, begun in the fall, continues. A handwritten sign recently spotted on the door indicated the owners hope the space will be up and running by April 1.

Empty for a number of years, the quaint storefront was previously home to a pet store named Rowf, old photos show.

The Brooklyn outpost will join the original location on the Upper West Side, which opened in 2001, and a second location on the east side. A third Manhattan location closed over the summer.

Known for tea, scones and an amusing atmosphere, the other locations also have a full menu with plenty of kid-friendly options. No details on what precisely besides tea and baked goods will be served at the Brooklyn location have been posted as of yet.
