“Best afternoon tea in the city!”
“Simply the best afternoon tea ever! First of all, value for money was amazing. Excellent selection of sandwiches and cakes. The cocktails were amazing. Miles ahead of what I expected.”
“The whole experience could not be faulted. The food was great. The teapot of gin cocktail was full of flavour, right down to the last mouthful. Staff welcoming and helpful.”
Nestled within Virginia Court, Cup Merchant City is an inviting and beautifully crafted tea room. Part of the award-winning Cup Glasgow family, this little gem serves up scrumptious dishes and delicious drinks in a breath-taking Victorian setting.
