This spot is adorable and the food is soooo good! If you go with someone, order a few items to share so you get to experience as much as possible.

General experience was really good! The salmon I ordered was salty, but other than that it was a good place to enjoy well-crafted tea! I would go back in a heart beat!!

Best Afternoon Tea Cafe Ever! I couldn't believe that the Tea Tier was only $30!

The place is lovely and great for special occasions and taking pictures. The staff is so friendly and had great suggestions. The tea lattes are beautifully decorated and I highly recommend trying the afternoon tea. They were even able to make the sandwiches vegetarian friendly.

Stumbled upon this cute little cafe! I’m not a huge tea drinker, but the rose tea latte was great. My boyfriend and I loved the waffle!The staff was exceptionally nice and accommodating—they made our experience even better. Definitely coming back!

Wonderful menu, food was delicious and expertly prepared. Nice decor but small in size so if it's not busy you will be comfortable. Staff are very accommodating. Great value. Nice not to have to wait until mid-afternoon if you are in the mood for a "proper" tea service.

We made a reservation here for a before show tea at MSG. The decor is so cute and pink. The place was not busy at all, we felt like we had the entire restaurant to ourselves. Our server was so delightful and attentive. We ordered iced tea as it was a very hot day. Our tea came in “to go cups” but they even had adorable cup cozies for us.
We ordered the “tea tier.” It was more than enough for a before show nosh. There were sandwiches on artisanal bread. My favorite was the tomato and cheese with balsamic glaze. The second tier had avocado roasts and pink hummus...all delicious. The top tier was dessert with the fudgiest brownies and mini macrons. All really fresh and delicious.
It wasn’t “traditional English tea” so if you’re looking for that you’ll be surprised. But I believe pleasantly surprised. The modern twist on a classic afternoon tea was not only pleasing to the palate but to the eye.
Definitely a must stop if you’re in the area. We were also told to stop over at their sister place 2 doors down where they serve brunch and Prosecco. We didn’t this time but may pop in next time. Maybe they’ll combine the 2.

Cute place in nyc for a girls trip. I was sad they were out of the rose petals because I was looking to get the pink latte. But besides that the food was fantastic... will be returning

Blank Slate was the perfect place to catch up with a friend. We got the tea tier which has an assortment of sandwiches and sweets. All of the sandwiches were delicious and the brownies and macarons were a great finish. I tacked a star only because our food did take a little long to come and once it did, someone came to tell us a private event was going to start about half an hour later so we felt a bit rushed to eat everything quickly

The food was really lovely, however it’s quite loud because of the sound bouncing off the walls. None of the patrons were exceptionally loud. Putting up some upholstery might do well to take down the sound.

Blank Slate Tea was exactly what I was looking for for our belated Mother’s Day outing. Very cute and girly decor, small but we didn’t feel cramped. Food and drinks were excellent. We may be making this a monthly outing!
