Even the 80 year-old customers in this tea room say little has changed in the last 50 or 60 years. This traditional Victorian tea room sits quietly amongst the glamour, shabby chic and bohemian feel of this seaside city. Hard to believe they make all these amazing cakes on the premises in such a tiny building.
Fancy a Cuppa? reviews 50 places across the UK for a good cup of tea or coffee and a nice piece of cake, a scone or other local delicacy. This is not a ’50 best’ tea rooms or cafes guide. Rather it includes places that have a story to tell.
A dozen or so fantastic home-baked cakes every day, along with house specialities: vanilla, coffee or strawberry meringues; and mega doughnuts. Great cream tea (whipped cream) for £5.50; or try the home-made tea-cakes. On the savoury side, their Welsh Rabbit (rarebit) is excellent, or for a variation, try Buck, Tom or Bunny Rabbit. Also lots of old favourites like anchovies on toast; even marmite on toast. Excellent loose-leaf tea: Mock Turtle sell their own blend. All served on blue willow china.
