“The time has come,” the Walrus said,
“To talk of many things:
Of shoes–and ships–and sealing-wax–
Of cabbages–and kings–
And why the sea is boiling hot–
And whether pigs have wings.”
~from “Through the Looking Glass and What Alice Found There” by Lewis Carroll

This is the best little place ever! Alice’s Tea Cup in the Upper West Side has the best tea selection, scones, and food in general. I had the french toast for brunch (1st pic) and it was some of the best french toast I’ve ever had. For tea, had the Silver Needle Jasmine tea which was sooo aromatic and tasty. It complimented the buttermilk scone and raspberry with chocolate scone very nicely. The scones really were the best–so buttery and soft and perfect. This place really has turned the novel idea of a tea party into a great experience with delicious tea and scrumptious goodies. I saw groups with towers of scones, sandwiches, & cupcakes and other yummy things accompanied by pots of tea. Alice in Wonderland is inspiration for this little teahouse/restaurant/cafe/place. I can definitely see myself coming back here for a great cup of tea and scone or anything else on the menu. It’s so relaxing inside that you really could lose yourself in there for a few hours. It’s great. A must try. The tea party is not for little girls anymore! There were more than plenty of adults in here enjoying themselves.

Nostalgic for classic illustrations from Lewis Carroll’s, Alice in Wonderland, that were drawn by illustrator, John Tenniel, for the book. Shown here are a few excerpts of the many illustrations that were included in the original book. This is definitely one of my favorite books. Think I may have to read it again soon.

Excited for Tim Burton’s version of Alice in Wonderland due out March 5, 2010 in theaters! I love Lewis Carroll’s story and Tim Burton’s movies always have such great imagery that this is sure to be a fun movie. Great costumes based on these photos. Can’t wait!
