Our son, who lives near the Northern Quarter, took us to Teacup on a Sunday afternoon. The place was packed but we waited on seats by the entrance and a table was found for us within 10 minutes. The atmosphere was great. The staff wore amusing pun based "tea" shirts and were friendly and efficient. We had blue sky Earl Grey, Assam tea and a lemon zingi, mushrooms on toast with an egg, halloumi salad and a falefel sandwich. To follow we shared three large cakes: pear drop , red velvet and pistachio. The teas were topped up during the meal.
The main courses were good as were the cakes
I can't believe some of the negative comments about the staff. They were friendly and attentive without being pushy. True, the prices are not cheap, but you generally get what you pay for.
If you are looking for a cheap brew with a burger, don't come here. If you wan't a special experience with special teas and a very special staff - try Teacup. You won't be disappointed.
