A rawther fancy way to enjoy a day in New York City is with the Eloise afternoon tea at the Plaza Hotel.
The Plaza’s famous literary resident, Eloise, has a strong presence throughout the hotel, including the specially-themed children’s afternoon tea in The Palm Court. Other places to find Eloise at the Plaza are to visit the Eloise store on the underground level, or if the sky’s the limit, book the Eloise suite.
We booked the Eloise afternoon tea to indulge our city girl and she indeed did find it pink, pink, pink, and all too delightful.
The Eloise Afternoon Tea is served on exquisite china that has been hand-painted for The Plaza Hotel. It can be purchased from the gift shop downstairs if you want to take home a special souvenir.

Our diner chose the pink lemonade (delicious!!!) and the tropical garden tea. Her favourite selections from the amazing platter of treats were the giant cotton candy, seasonal fruit tart and rice krispy treat. Considering the amount and quality of food, I thought it was excellent value.
The Eloise Afternoon Tea was a massive hit with our 7-year-old. She loved the custom china and special items she received that we didn’t. The experience made her feel really special.
