The decor is wonderful, and a great setting for afternoon tea. Really appreciated the call to confirm the online booking, especially since I have dietary requirements. These were dealt with smoothly and I still enjoyed the full tea service. Food was delicious. Francesca, who served us once we'd been re-seated, was excellent. The service was very attentive even though she... More

Our niece bought an afternoon tea for my husband's birthday treat and what a treat. The food was excellent, the service and staff superb and the interior of the building outstanding. Do not miss this treat if you are in Glasgow.

Visited on a very busy Saturday afternoon and was not disappointed. Afternoon tea was delicious and service superb. Lovely surroundings. Don't expect to be able to finish all the sweet treats though.....8 cakes each!. Would definitely return!

This is the second time I have been to Cup Tea Lounge for brunch. Both times have been incredibly disappointing. The service is terrible. Although the servers are friendly, they are incredibly SLOW to ask you for your drinks, bring you a drink, ask for food, and finally bring out your food AND take your payment. Upon arriving this morning,... More

A friend took me to the one in the west end and now there is one the centre. For tea it has to be one of the best places I have ever been too. The cakes are pretty nice

We booked this after a recommendation from a friend and it is one of the best Afternoon Teas I have ever had. Everything was freshly made, the service was quick, food delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive. Best of all, it was great value for money. I will definitely be back (hopefully soon!)
