Anyone remember the power breakfast?
Terrible idea. Very vulgar – talking business over the toast and marmalade.
We much prefer the rather more civilised afternoon tea.
And not just because it takes place at a much more sympatico time of day.
Delicious sandwiches, dainty cakes, lashings of tea and good chat. What’s not to like?
Lift the curtain on a fine afternoon tea for two in the elegant surroundings of the vibrant and contemporary Vanilla Black café at the Theatre Royal in Glasgow.
Located in the bright, modern foyer of the much loved theatre, Vanilla Black is the perfect venue for a cultured get-together or a relaxed catch-up.
