From child chimney sweeps to mutton chop facial hair, not everything about the good old days was actually all that groovy.
Afternoon tea is, of course, the exception.
Revisit the Golden Age of tea with today’s Big Deal on a vintage afternoon tea for two at Cupcakes for You.
Based in the West End, this elegant little boutique specialises in providing deliciously retro afternoon teas.
The gorgeous tea room is decorated just like a sitting room from the Forties and Fifties.
Along with magazines from the Forties, guests will be serenaded by the sounds of those bygone eras playing softly in the background.
Vintage china crockery
Elegant, vintage, china crockery; lovely table linen and sterling silver cutlery help complete the picture.
A typical menu starts with freshly made sandwiches, quiche, miniature sausage rolls (all handmade), mixed salad leaves, cherry tomatoes and other salad items.
Scones & clotted cream
As well as scones with handmade jams and clotted cream; guests will be treated to a selection of cakes such as individual meringues and fruit tartlets. Of course, there will be fantastic cupcakes!
There is no limit to the amount of pots filled with tea or coffee at your table and there is no extra charge if you would prefer flavoured teas or speciality coffees.
Treat a friend
The vintage afternoon teas at Cupcakes for You are very popular with people who want to treat older family members who can remember the Forties or Fifties.
But you don’t need to have been there first time around to have a lovely time at Cupcakes for You – this offer would also be brilliant as a gift for a friend; a girls’ day out or simply for having a natter with a chum.
The afternoon teas at Cupcakes for You have made a lot of people smile. This is what a couple of guests said of their experiences:
‘Had a delicious afternoon tea, first class food, first class service. Hope to be back soon.’
‘Thank you so much for the lovely afternoon tea for my Mum’s 80th birthday. We both enjoyed the experience and the food was delicious and service so personal and friendly. Thoroughly recommend this place.’
