The original Saint Jude is said to be the patron saint of many things including lost causes and the Chicago Police Department.
Today’s Big Deal with Saint Judes on Glasgow’s Bath Street is anything but a lost cause although we do think that it’s rather arresting.
Intoxicating tea for 2
The deal is for two people to tuck into an afternoon tea with a twist in the stylish Saint Judes. The centrepiece of your treat is a delicious three tier cake stand to share.
Filled with delicate finger sandwiches; mini scones and, from St Judes’ award-winning pastry chef, a selection of finger-licking cakes, all three tiers are packed with goodies which define the term naughty but nice.
In terms of cakes, think along the lines of indulgent cupcakes and rich, moist brownies.
In a cunning twist on the usual afternoon tea format, Saint Judes have done away with the tea bit and replaced it with a glass of rose Prosecco served in a dainty teacup.
Having whet your whistle with the rose Prosecco, it’s time to move on to something a little stronger.
As part of the Big Deal, each guest can select a cocktail from Saint Judes’ signature Teatime Martinis menu. There’s nothing quite like an afternoon stiffener to loosen tongues and unleash the gossip.
An ivy-covered townhouse, Saint Judes has long been one of the hippest places to hang on Bath Street. If you haven’t visited before then today’s Big Deal could be the ideal introduction. It would also be perfect for a catch-up with a pal; treating a friend or even a romantic, little afternoon rendezvous.
