About Cup Tea Lounge

I couldn't rate Cup highly enough! I traveled from Ireland to see my friend for her belated 30th birthday I put this in the email and on arriving they brought the cupcakes out with a candle and mini balloon like decorations on the cupcakes. Around this top tier they iced happy belated birthday on the plate! It was such a thoughtful thing of the staff to do and really made my friend feel special!
Now on to the food, wow! Incredible sandwiches, wraps and rolls, freshly baked scones (that were heavenly) and the amount of cakes we got! Had to get a doggy bag and bring them home cos there was no way we could finish all the food!
Love, love, love this place. I'd go back to Glasgow for this afternoon tea alone.
Many thanks to all the staff for making this tea extra special!
Tea & cake in Glasgow city centre
For those who love the ceremony of afternoon tea, Glasgow’s Cup Tea Lounge is heaven. Sixteen cupcake options (plus daily specials) and 42 speciality teas all served in the decadent surroundings of a B listed Victorian building, it is the perfect place for a special day out or catch up with friends.
Cup Tea Lounge has built its reputation on two things – tea and cake. Its extensive cupcake menu includes adventurous takes on the classic cake such as the ambassadors delight (chocolate base with hazelnut frosting topped with a Ferrero Rocher chocolate) and peach milkshake (vanilla base with peach frosting and a milk and white chocolate straw) as well as favourites such as the pink vanilla and double chocolate.
Their tea menu features 42 options of black, roobis, green, white, herbal and fruit tea. All teas have been hand blended in small batches by Cup’s tea blend. Their artisan process of making the tea means that no machines are used and the tea leaves are not bruised.
Undoubtedly the most luxurious way to experience Cup Tea Lounge is to enjoy their afternoon tea, which offers three tiers of mini cakes and desserts along with a pot of tea, coffee or Belgian hot chocolate. If you like you can even bring along your own bottle for a small corkage charge. Little ones will delight in the children’s afternoon tea which includes a smaller selection of cakes along with tea or squash.
Breakfast, lunch, ice cream and coffee menus are also available.
Cup Tea Lounge is located in Glasgow City Centre on Renfield Street. It is a five minute walk from Glasgow Central rail station, Glasgow Queen Street Rail Station and Buchanan Street underground station. It is also close to a number of bus stops. The nearest taxi rank is five minutes away at Central Station.
