For some people, the best words in the world are ‘I love you’.
For others, it might be the phrase ‘Scotland are in the World Cup Final’.
Call us shallow but, in the Big Deal offices, it’s all about the cake and ‘Afternoon tea for two’ are the sweetest words anyone can whisper.
Get your cuppa on with today’s Big Deal on afternoon tea for two at Matilda’s on Byres Road.
Serious patisserie talent
This light, bright and friendly café bistro opened last year with a crack team of very experienced chefs, including some serious talent in the patisserie section.
They bake everything fresh daily in Matilda’s basement kitchen and the fruits of the chefs’ labour can be seen in Matilda’s mouth-watering window displays of cakes, gateaux and tarts.
Great cake selection
Available Monday to Friday, from 2pm to 6pm, today’s Big Deal is for two people to each enjoy an afternoon tea at Matilda’s.
Served on a swish, three tier cake stand, your afternoon tea at Matilda’s will feature a selection of sandwiches followed by freshly baked scones with preserves and clotted cream.
The exact selection of cakes may change but guests can look forward to delights such as mini chocolate and caramel éclairs; passion fruit meringue tarts and lemon polenta cake with berries.

It would be ideal for a catch-up with a chum or a wee treat for a family member.
Remember, if ‘afternoon tea for two’ sounds like a particularly enchanting spell to you then today’s Big Deal with Matilda’s has your name written all over it.
