Cosy tea room on Byres Road

The independently owned Cup Tea Room is a cosy space on Byres Road dedicated to great teas and fabulous hand baked cakes. This is the original of the small chain and it is a bustling, friendly spot which has long been a hit with 5pm customers.

Freshly baked cup cakes

Cup offers a range of options for daytime dining. Start your day with Cup’s morning tea; 3 tiers of pastries, mini bagles, fruit skewers, scones and granola pots served with earl grey or Cup’s very own breakfast blend. Cup has received awards from the UK Tea Guild and has over 40 blends.

Afternoon tea is Cup’s signature dish; pick from its varied tea menu and get a stand filled with finger sandwiches, scones with jam and clotted cream and individual frosted cupcakes. There is a huge choice of cupcakes all freshly baked on the premises from a ferrero rocher cupcake to a red velvet cupcake plus for little ones there’s a great option for a children’s afternoon tea.
Cup’s lunch menu also offers a range of soups, sandwiches and paninis everyday.
