This was an amazing Afternoon Tea, a wide array of filled rolls, cakes, pastries galore, and hot scones with clotted cream and jam, we chose a glass of proseco to go with the Afternoon Tea all for £19.95. We didn't get the best table, all four of us were sat at a low coffee style table, but the place was... More

Visited the Cup tea lounge in Renfield Street for the first time today. Booked online and received a lovely courtesy call to confirm and check dietary requirements. Arrived at our allotted time and shown to our table where we were served a fantastic afternoon tea - lovely fresh rolls, gorgeous cakes and sweet treats and fresh out of the oven... More

Recently went here for Afternoon tea, which we upgraded with Prosecco. Great afternoon tea and scones were freshly made so came out warm. Very reasonable price. Have walked past before and not really noticed but certainly won't just walk by again. Looking forward to trying their cocktail teapots also

Went with friends for afternoon tea for my birthday and the staff was lovely. When they realised it was a birthday celebration they put a birthday message on the afternoon tea which was a lovely little gesture. The afternoon tea and cocktails were delicious and was a lovely afternoon spent at cup.

After spending a great morning at the Botanic gardens we walked along the river bank and came out onto Buyers road where there is one of the two Cup tea lounges in Glasgow. This one is smaller but excellent. We were just ready for a cuppa and weren't disappointed. They blend their own tea and I had the breakfast blend... More
