Bklink: Park Slope Tea Lounge Suckage?
"Is anyone else disappointed at the quality of the coffee at the 7th Ave (10 St.) Tea Lounge? It used to be the best coffee around, but lately it's fairly hideous...Plus, the place really looks filthy. Behind the counter it's disgusting, the couches are even worse, and the outside of the place is a total eyesore for the neighborhood. This is a place I've loved for years, but the owner I think is really letting it slip while he grows the business and opens locations in other spots..." (GL Note: Recently, we noted that the Union Street Tea Lounge was in particularly disgusting and deplorable condition, without getting into the issue of the out-of-control child threatening to knock scalding hot tea all over us, which is a parental issue rather than a Tea Lounge issue, per se. There was trash and filth everywhere, full trash cans and it looked like no one had lifted a finger to clean anything all day. In a word: Nasty.)--Brooklynian
