Run by Nicky Perry and Sean Kavanagh-Dowsett, the place offers people the chance to step right into warmth of an English tea room and has been faithfully serving the ex-pats of New York since 1991.
On top of tea and biscuits and a small shop next door that serves all sorts of English products, the cafe also offers a menu of regional English dishes such as Shepard’s Pie, Bangers and Mash and a classic Sunday Dinner.
If you’re travelling, living in New York or you just want to know what all this tea and biscuits thing is all about, there’s no better place to sample it than Tea and Sympathy.
