The veggie sandwiches were much better and more imaginative than the standard egg or cheese most places offer and the cakes were delicious and so much of it all. Topped off with excellent unlimited tea and lovely friendly staff its a hidden gem and i will be back... More

Fab little place, afternoon tea is lovely and I have to say the oreo slice/cheesecake was AMAZING! Love the vintage tea cups etc, cant wait to come back! Think its fantastic that you can bring your own bottle for a small corkage charge.

Chillin' with a cappuccino in this increasingly popular cafe/bistro. Looks like ye've got to have a doctors line to get a seat. Have been several times and had to go elsewhere as it was so busy. I think that you can pre-book a table. When you can get a seat it's nice and relaxing with good fare, and the prices... More

You really need to know where you are going to find the tearoom. It's just down a lane in finnieston off the main road. The high tea served was plentiful, varied and delicious. The old cake stands , crockery quirky interior all added to an enjoyable afternoon catch up for friends.Best to book.

well known if you are local, but a hidden gem to us who live on the other side of the city. We just had tea/coffee and shared a cake. All were very nice as was the staff. The tearoom is small, quaint and the china, furniture etc a wee time capsule. Prices were also very good

I am very confused, we don't use teabags for any of our teas unless you ordered Tetley tea specifically. Could you give me more details about your visit. More

Speciality teas are fab, especially the Lavender Earl Grey and the Chai teas. Came here for morning tea treat and had the Rose and Pistacio cake and sister had Scone with the usual cream and jam. Everything is served in dainty wee china teapots, cups and saucers with wee side plates. The soft drinks are served in old jars! Not... More
