Afternoon Tea: Tea & Sympathy

One of my favorite places in NYC is Tea & Sympathy on Greenwich Avenue (not to be confused with Greenwich Street) in the West Village.  I have been going to this haven for British ex-pats and Britophiles for a long time.  My favorite thing to get is the afternoon tea for one with finger sandwiches, scones with clotted cream and jam and assorted cakes.  It is truly a special treat.  It used to be very hard to get seated here with a long wait, but these days when I come, I’m seated right away.  On this latest visit with a friend, I got scones with clotted cream and they were deliciously wonderful, as always.


Of course, I got tea in these adorable tea pots.


My friend ordered the shepherd’s pie and enjoyed it very much.
