Found Cupan tea during a tour and absolutely loved it! Great tea and beautiful sorroundings. We both loved the place and the Emerald Isle tea was really wonderful!

What a cute little tea house. Must try their keylime /zuchinni cake. They do not do take away though, which is sad cause they have so many wonderful desserts, inpossible to try them all. Fantastic choice of teas, nice for lunch. Very popular , with reason.

We stopped in for a spot of tea on a cloudy day and had a wonderful time.. Small and charming spot. Interesting and pleasing menu, both in teas and eats. We purchased teas to take home as well. Take time to stop and relax and enjoy.

We popped in for tea and a cake, not expecting to find ourselves in a twee old-fashioned tea room. It’s a lovely place to relax after walking around Galway, with a wide choice of teas and a nice selection of cakes and sandwiches. We opted for the soup, which was delicious, and shared an interesting courgette and lime cake.
As some have said, it’s a bit pricey if all you want is a cake and a cup of tea, but for something different as a couple it is worth a try.

We visited A Cupan Tae last Tuesday and to say that this cafe is a total rip off is putting it mildly! We ordered a cup of breakfast tea, a regular cappuccino,a walnut muffin and a piece of carrot cake - bill €23! Even in a good cafe in Dublin you would not expect to pay€7.50 for an average piece of cake. The cappuccino was boiling and could not be drunk. This was pointed out to the waiting staff and again when paying the bill - the answer was that “the person who made it was being trained”! No offer of compensation was made. This cafe with it’s lacy tablecloths and fine china may be pretty but that doesn’t compensate for tourists and locals being ripped off.
