Absolutely lovely experience. The backyard is such a beautiful and peaceful oasis. The owner and servers strike the perfect balance of being attentive and friendly while giving guests privacy for intimate conversations. Excellent selection of delicious teas and very good amount of food for the price. I would - and will - return in a heartbeat!

I wanted to take my daughter out to a "fancy tea" but since she is not yet 5 we needed somewhere that was fancy but not uptight. Brooklyn High Low was perfect. A magical setting, delightful service, yummy treats and low key vibe. It felt like such a luxury to just relax for an hour or so with nothing to do but drink tea, chat with my little girl, and eat snacks.

We had a special mother-daughter tea to celebrate my birthday this past weekend, and everything about the event was great. The service is personal and informative, and the treats perfectly accompanied our tea service. This is the perfect place for a special event.

A perfectly cozy and romantic afternoon tea in the garden. Most delicious, generous and friendly...the owner and staff were wonderful, and we couldn't finish everything they served with the Heights experience. The inside tea room was beautiful as well. Brooklyn has needed a tea room exactly like this and I'm so glad we found it!

A tea house that rival any in the UK is right here Prospect Heights...what a lovely experience! We tried the Vanderbilt experience for our tea service and it was perfect in size and variety, featuring both traditional and unique tea sandwiches and sweet treats. We will back to try the Heights Experience for the ultimate in Tea Decadence. Although there is no required dress code at High Low, my partner and I did dress for the occasion for Low Tea and it was so much fun! Why not make it special? We all need an escape to another place and time these days. Many thanks to Honey and her staff for their attentiveness, hospitality, and especially their joie de vivre for all things tea!

Honestly, this was one of the best tea services we've ever had in NYC and... anywhere! The tea and food were delicious. The service was wonderful. The environment was perfect, too. We had the Vanderbilt service, which allowed each of us a choice of tea and to pick our sandwiches. The food was so filling and we even had some leftovers, which isn't usual for tea services. Also, the scones (THE SCONES) are amazing — especially with the lemon curd. Beyond the food and tea, what made the experience perfect was the staff. The owner greeted us at the door and the wait staff could not have been nicer. They're knowledgeable and down-to-Earth. If you're looking for a great way to spend an hour or so, book this place. We live in uptown Manhattan and Brooklyn High Low is about a 40-minute drive, but it was worth it.

Perfect little escape- fun high tea. Staff were so nice. Owner was incredible...there were 3 of us - 1 birthday girl, 1 celiac (gluten free), and 1 observing passover (no bread!). They went out of their way to adjust the menu for each of us, and make the bday girl feel special.
Totally recommend.
Big bonus- outdoor seating

They have limited time for each customer, so they should have taken the order in advance, perhaps online or over the phone, so that when we are seated at the table they would be able to serve tea and food immediately. There was a plently amount of food, so we needed more time to be able to consume the whole meal and tea without rushing. We simply needed more time.

I had a wonderful Friday afternoon catching up with my dear friend here. We were blown away by the delicious food, bottomless cup of tea, cozy environment and super kind service team. We had such a great time that we didn't want to leave, so we started eating slower, which is hard to do when everything tastes so good. We are already planning coming back soon -- within the same month!

This place is too cute, the setup is really different. It reminds me of Alice in wonderland when they had tea but not has hectic. The owner and her daughter were really sweet and helpful. This is a great place to hangout and drink tea. The food was good, it might look small but you don’t feel like you didn’t eat anything at all. It was just right. I would recommend this place to anyone who is a fellow tea lover and antique lover 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!
