Publishers Text

In 1990 Nicola Perry, former tea lady at the London Stock Exchange, started living her dream. She found a storefront and opened Tea & Sympathy, an authentic amalgamation of English tea shop, mum's kitchen, and working man's cafe right in the heart of New York. Anita Naughton was one of her first waitresses, and from day one she kept an anecdotal record of the place, encapsulating the charm, flavor, and enigmatic patrons that are the atmosphere of the restaurant.

Together they have created a colorful biography spanning the first decade of this landmark eatery: from the early days when they kept their meager profits in a teapot, to nowadays when they keep celebrities waiting for a table along with everyone else. Complete with 60 recipes and photos of food and popular visitors, this is a quintessential taste of England ready to take home.
