I took my mum here for afternoon tea for her 50th Birthday and what an experience it was! The restaurant itself is in such a beautiful setting that it creates beautiful atmosphere. Now the afternoon tea is not the cheapest around but it is so worth it. We went for champagne with ours as well and it was all amazing,... More

Was quite surprised to be asked if we had a reservation when we walked in but they seated us regardless. If you want to go, book apparently!! I had the sliders which were immense, 3 different types and each was delicious. J had the eggs benedict which looked generous of hollandaise and bacon. The tea was given with a timer... More

A group of us visited Cup Tea Lounge for my mothers 60th birthday & it was absolutely fabulous!! The service provided was excellent from the moment we got there & the decor was just beautiful. We were delighted when the afternoon tea arrived, which I have to say was great value for money. There was plenty to choose from, all... More

Tried Cup for the first time last year and have been back a number of times since. Their High Tea is one of the best High Tea experiences in Glasgow. Delicious sandwiches and puddings that vary with the seasons, as well as a fun and retro interior. We've taken a number of guests for High Tea there and none have... More

On arrival at cup tea lounge we were met and shown to our table. 30 minutes later we had to ask for our order to be taken, when order was given we had to wait a further 20 minutes for our cakes to appear and we had finished our cakes by the time our drinks appeared. We ordered a further... More

Came back to Australia to see my best friend that I had not seen in 3 years and took her to the cup lounge just off Buchanan st. It was amazing. I am a big cupcake fan and know when I've had a good cupcake and they certainly have them here. We had Afternoon High tea and it was just... More

Took my sister here to celebrate her good exam results. We had hot chocolate/peppermint tea and a cupcake each. Really loved the atmosphere and the staff were great -, especially with recommending which cake we could get gluten free. Really enjoyed my time here and will definitely go back!

My daughter and I visited here today for afternoon tea and had a great time. The special touch of having adult and children's afternoon tea was ideal as my daughter loved having her own child friendly food whilst maintaining the elegance of adult servings. Sandwiches were nice, but real delights were the home made scones and other sweet delights. Waitress... More

What a lovely find in Glasgow City centre. Wide choice of food and drinks at very reasonable prices. Helpful friendly staff. I popped in alone for tea and cake and ended up having the lunch deal. Soup, sandwich, cupcake and pot of tea for under a tenner. Beautiful.
