We came here on the first day of our holiday for a late lunch and were thrilled to find there were still breakfasts available! Had fantastic veggie breakfast sitting outside and enjoyed it so much we came back two days later and did it again! Staff are really friendly, food appears to be all cooked fresh and home made.

Here we sit sipping coffee looking at the famous Iron bridge that was the world's first and part of the industrial revolution. Great setting. Coffee was good; we ordered the jumbo version and the vanilla sponge cake. The sun helped the moods. Overall a very good afternoon.

This is a great little cafe which serves the most exquisite teas and sandwiches. Set in a delightful little spot, one can sit inside in the charming surroundings or outside under the shelter of an umbrella. A must visit little place if you are in the great town of Ironbridge.

Went here to have a little snack and a drink. The staff were very friendly. I had the Earl Grey which was nice, it was loose leaf and had a better taste and smell than many of the other places I have had Earl Grey. I also had a plain scone with clotted cream and jam. We were asked whether... More

I had a pot of tea here recently while visiting Ironbridge, so this review is specifically about that and not about the food they do, which looked nice on other people's tables. My gripe is basically that a place called The Tea Emporium, which has a menu of different tea blends at really-not-that-cheap prices, should have excellent tea, but I... More

The Tea Emporium has a wonderful selection of teas and their gluten free cake selection is equally impressive. We stopped for tea on Thursday afternoon last week and I had a slice of gluten free Victoria sponge. A huge wedge of ultra light sponge with lovely jam and cream. I have been on a gluten free diet for very many... More

This is a lovely little tea room with friendly happy staff, a good place to rest your bones after a walk round the historic area, gazing on the bridge which symbolises Britain's industrial revolution. And the cream tea was delicious.

We have visited The Tea Emporium Iron-bridge on past occasions, though the last time was circa five years ago. Today was another special day, "being out with my wife is always a special day", no I was not prompted to say that, well not on this occasion. A pleasant amble along the riverside, taking a few photos of the iconic... More

We stopped here for a very late lunch. There was a breakfast menu (!!) which was still in force, so we had a vegetarian breakfast each, plus tea and coffee. Service was a bit slow, but friendly. the meal was good, not as greasy as some breakfasts can be. The location is a little odd - sitting outside, partly in... More
