Excellent Afternoon Tea

Went for the Afternoon Tea today with a friend. The food was fantastic. Huge variety of teas on offer which are unlimited. The savouries were far better than the standard sandwiches that I've had at other afternoon teas. We got the chance to take what we couldn't manage to eat home with us. Really... read more

Came for afternoon tea for a friends birthday. She was running a little bit late and a waitress must of came over 3 times asking if she was there and if we were ready to order. It just felt like she wanted us in and out of the place more so than anything. Apart from that the service quality was... More

My wife and I met my brother and his wife in the Cup in Renfield Street for brunch before they returned south. The Winter Menu was sufficiently varied to satisfy both vegetarians and meat eaters. Those who had porridge enjoyed it, I had Eggs Royale and was impressed by the generosity of the portion of smoked salmon. My wife had... More

Called in for a long lazy brunch in beautiful surroundings. All the food was excellent from an interesting menu. The staff were friendly and helpful and did not rush us. They specialise in teas but the coffee was good. And look out for the splendid selection of cup cakes.

The staff are always so friendly, the afternoon tea is brilliant and so delicious - I love that they bring the scones out a little later so they are freshly baked and nice and warm! The cocktails are lovely as well - it's definitely guaranteed to be a lovely afternoon out and I never fail to enjoy it here!

A friend and I booked an afternoon tea for two and would definitely recommend going to Cup. We had been before for lunch and tea but this was our first afternoon tea. The service was excellent, the food was absolutely delicious and there was such a nice atmosphere. Both myself and my friend have food intolerances/allergies and Cup were fantastic... More
