The Big Deal boffins have yet again put back the launch of our time machine.
However, we can transport you to another era with today’s Big Deal on vintage afternoon tea 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 and, naturally, it is all served on a three tier stand.
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 recent guest said of her experience:
‘Takes me back. I love this quaint little shop, it takes me back to my childhood, like visiting my grandmother’s house with it’s vintage furnishings and china tea sets, the staff are very welcoming and friendly, even my favourite cupcake flavour “Parma violet” fills me with nostalgia.’
