My 3 daughters took me to Cup for afternoon tea to celebrate my retirement from work. The afternoon tea was absolutely delicious. Could not eat another thing for the rest of the day. The 2 hour slot was just perfect. We enjoyed a leisurely afternoon without feeling rushed and gave us time to chat. The cakes were absolutely delicious, and... More

We booked for four for the tea experience and were not disappointed. We arrived a little early and as it was Saturday, therefore very busy, we had to wait for our table to be ready. Lots of lovely teas, cakes, pastries and the savoury selection was good too. Despite one of our party being a devout sugaraholic we still had... More

This was the second time we've been to Cup for morning tea with an itison voucher and it didn't disappoint. Staff were great with the kids and accommodated their fussy choices not on menu! The morning tea stand was delicious and now includes a fruit juice as well as unlimited tea. So much food that we couldn't finish it but... More

After seeing reviews and that it was the top rated cafe in Glasgow I decided to visit for some lunch and after my visit I can see why it is. Extensive range of teas, even ones for people who don't like tea. Good lunch menu, I'd recommend the club sandwich which was well packed. So many cupcakes n treats you'd... More

My friends and I booked a table here for afternoon tea as we were celebrating finally graduating from our degree. Upon booking, we were asked of any dietary requirements or preferences and we asked for no egg to be included in the afternoon tea and told that this was no problem. Booking was simple and easy. When we arrived, the... More

Every time l take anyone to Cup for a Morning Tea Stand, they are blown away with the quality of the food and the service. Today was no exception, the Eggs Benedict was perfect and the brioche rolls with various fillings were lovely. As usual the staff were charming and professional. If you come here for breakfast you will be... More
