Such a lovely experience! Did not feel like NYC, was so calm and enjoyable. Service was top notch and the environment was beautiful. Perfect lunch with the gal pals. Will be taking my mother when she comes to visit NYC, as well.

Fantastic tea service right in the heart of Prospect Heights! Brooklyn High Low is beyond charming, cozy, and the perfect destination to spend the afternoon imbibing on sweet and savory treats! The decorations and attention to detail both in the sitting room and the garden will leave you feeling like you're at your best friend's house! Couple that with amazing, friendly service and you'll want to escape back everyday!

Pro Tips:

1. Get the "Heights" tea package, the value is unmatched for the amount of food, unlimited tea, and assortment of delectables you receive.

2. The Truffle Chicken, Smoked Fish & Scallion, and Egg Salad sandwiches are not to be missed if they're on the menu!

3. The homemade scones and crumpets are out of this world.

4. And the Cottage Breakfast tea is a welcome, delicious take on the classic English Breakfast!

My boyfriend and I came to Brooklyn High Low for my birthday and they went above and beyond to make the experience as special as possible! The outdoor space is gorgeous and well heated, the entire staff was so sweet and helpful, and I now want to go back every single weekend. Truly a delightful spot!

This was exactly want I needed to escape from reality and refresh for a couple hours with my girlfriends. As you walk in through the front curtains, you immediately feel transported to an English tea house far away from the loud, busy Brooklyn life. The spacious front room has the perfect ambiance and is impeccably decorated with antique furniture and silverware, as is the covered “outdoor” space in the back, warmed with the overhead heaters. Even the simple act of choosing from the mishmash of fine China placed at our table to go with your big pot of tea and delicious scone, sandwiches, and pastries served on the classic three tray stand had my friends and I giddy like little girls playing tea time with our dolls. I will definitely be going back again soon.

This was an amazing High Tea experience.

I have never seen a place quite like it. It is a Gem hidden in Brooklyn and worth every penny! The owner is super sweet . It is a family run, small business as the owner and her daughter both work to make your experience as rich as possible.

There is also a beautiful outdoor section that can be utilized all year round. The vibe is amazing and the vintage shop three doors down is also owned by the same woman. It is also one of the nicest vintage stores I have ever been inside of.

You can see the pieces used in the tea room as well as in the Vintage Shop are hand picked very carefully to foster the ambiance she so closely aspires to emulate.

Brooklyn High Low is, hands down, my favorite new spot in the neighborhood. From the moment you walk into the space and are greeted with the cozy vintage decor to the minute your afternoon tea snacks are placed on the table, the entire experience is one of relaxation and indulgence. I've been three times in the last 3 weeks, and it is my mission to bring as many friends as possible and spread the word about the magical time one can have here!
