Today I have a post different from the usual- an afternoon tea review! I was inspired to do one of a tea place I went to while in NYC a few weeks back because of the lovely blog posts of Oh How Civilized (I suggest you visit her blog if you want to become very hungry for delicious food). Ever since I stumbled upon her blog I wanted to go to an afternoon tea service. Unfortunately though, there are hardly any in the area and even if there are some, they're quite pricey. I was at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with my mother and wee saw that they had an afternoon tea service at their Petrie Court Cafe, and so we decided to go~
The cafe was located on the first floor, but I don't remember the exact location because I was famished and thus not really paying attention to my surroundings. The space is quite casual, and because of the stone walls all of the sound waves bounced back and it was really loud. We went when there were a lot of people so it wasn't exactly a tranquil environment. It was pretty nonetheless though.
