What our customers say about us

  • “My mom and I were at the Chapter III (East 81st) location on Sunday Oct 22 around 11AM. Your employees are seriously amazing!  Not only are they great at their jobs but they were so KIND and just lovely to be around! I’ve lived in NY for about 5 years and have to say the customer service at this restaurant was one of the best. Your employees are the fantastic!”

  • “Thank you for making my baby shower a really wonderful experience. We had an even better time than my bridal shower here 8 years ago. Love the teas and the pastries, especially the pumpkin scones!!! Justin was absolutely phenomenal — a real gem and he made our day. Hope you guys are around for many years to come.”

  • “Everything was wonderful – the staff members were helpful (our waitress immediately offered to help when she noticed our hesitation about tea selection, and she was very knowledgeable). The tea was the perfect temperature and the sandwiches and treats were delicious. We had a great time in a fun, comfortable setting.”
