Went in for afternoon tea for my birthday treat, and what a treat. Fresh cut sandwiches, large scones, freshly baked cake, and tea brewed in the pot - with refill. All served on vintage crockery in vintage surroundings. Great service and very reasonably priced. Hope to visit again.

We came across this tearoom, walked in and ordered afternoon tea - no need to pre-book, but café is small, so advisable , if you don't want to be disappointed. If you're of a certain generation, it felt a bit like having gone back in time - from flights of birds on walls, old television, table settings and even the... More

We happened upon this tea room whilst exploring all the lanes of Byers Road. On opening the door I began to smile as the music and furniture immediately had us start the "I remember this" type of conversation (even down to the ceramic ducks flying up the wall) Proper tea and some marvellous homemade Victoria sponge made the smile even...

A place to escape and go to another era for a couple of hours! Very nice home made cakes, very good home made soup, sandwiches, tea and coffee made according to your taste (I drink mine differently)! All of the above with very friendly people who remember you after the 2nd time you go there!!! In short: an excellent choice... More

Should you want genuine, tasty home made cakes, rather than plastic flavoured baking, then this is the place to go. Over the years i have lost complete confidence in the offerings more than a few cafes, or tea rooms. I seem to have the ability to sense inferiority by simply looking at the product on offer. The more inviting the... More

Picture this- homemade cake on vintage crockery. Yes indeed! Cake, scones, slices and even the soup is homemade. Sandwiches are made to order. Then beautifully presented on vintage and rescued crockery, served to you on your vintage table, complete with hand embroidered tablecloth - sublime. Did I mention the ice cream floats? There are so many afternoon tea places now,... More

Very enjoyable cream tea with proper tea and delicious scones with tasty jams and cream. Everything presented in crockery in keeping with 50/60's. Great period surroundings, friendly service and tremendous value for money. An establishment like this deserves to be successful so pay a visit (and take your gran, if you're not one yourself, she'll love it).

I came here with a friend earlier this month for a catch up. It is a cute little tea shop off Byers Road, but you would never have thought it was so close to such a busy street. It had a lovely atmosphere and the staff were very nice. I had the house tea blend which was delicious and a... More

I've visited the Cup & Saucer a few times and it's now my favourite Glasgow cafe thanks to the charming decor which reminds me of childhood visits to my Gran's house & the delicious home baking & soups.
