Thoroughly enjoyed cup on Sunday morning for brunch. It is a quirky place that always serves a fantastic cup of tea! Had the breakfast sliders and loved each filling, poached egg was cooked perfectly. Went along with my girlfriend and her sisters who all enjoyed their different flavoured teas. Only tiny criticism would be that our waitress didn't write down... More

There was a broad selection of teas, some cakes to go with and a great atmosphere. I only had the tea so can't talk about the menu. The service was efficient but not rushed at all.

We were on an itison voucher. The Morning Tea is a breakfast twist on Afternoon Tea and is a great experience. The tea lounge is beautiful with the most unusual victorian tiled interior. I asked if we could have tea other than breakfast or Earl Gray and they very kindly agreed. BUT I chose a white tea which had a... More

The only problem I have with breakfast at the Cup is that I can never eat it all. Three rolls each, egg, bacon, sausage, hash browns or vegetarian alternatives. Muesli and yoghurt with fruit, scones with butter and amazing jam (strawberry and Earl Grey), pastries and delicious tea, either Earl Grey or English Breakfast. Pleasant quiet atmosphere and friendly and... More

Shopping and afternoon tea at Cup is a must especially if it's your daughters 21st ! We'd booked online and also let them know of food allergy so they could give us an alternative for a member of our group and catered for without any problems on the day. We upgraded to the prosseco and cocktail teas. Sandwiches, cakes and... More

Was looking for somewhere to have a cup of tea on way back to Glasgow Central Station. This place is a wee gem. Excellent service. Good selection of teas and cup cakes, was difficult to decide on which cup cake to choose.. Afternoon teas looked amazing. Nothing was a problem and we enjoyed a couple of pots of tea. Would... More

We were looking for somewhere to meet friends for lunch with our teenage children and this was perfect. From the minute I made the booking till we paid the bill. The service was friendly, helpful and quick, the food was delicious and reasonably priced and the coffee was fabulous. We will definitely be back!

Staff were very knowledgable about the selection of Gin on offer and so left it to them to choose drinks for us and we were more than pleased with the result. Definitely worth visiting!
