Review: Teacup Kitchen

Nestled in the heart of Manchester’s Northern Quarter is Teacup Kitchen, one of the most quintessential British establishments you will ever stumble across.

Their main export is tea and cakes, treats that would tick off all the boxes of your stereotypical British person’s cravings.

However, while their rainbow cake, and bright green pistachio cake is certainly impressive (and no doubt delicious), fancy teas and slices of cake are not the only thing on offer.

Their hearty lunches are a sight to see. Perfectly presented and so scrumptious, Teacup don’t compromise on flavour or looks.

Their menu has an ample selection of pies, and of course, being Northern, we wouldn’t have gone for anything else.   

Seen here is their warming Moo Moo pie, soaked in gravy.

It absolutely hit the spot, and was exactly what you’d want on a chilly, rainy Northern afternoon.

Alongside our meal we indulged in some exotic teas.

The performing flower tea unfurls in the hot water as the tea brews (you watch it grow on my Instagram). 

Not only was this tea beautiful to watch but it also had a beautifully delicate flavour too.

Obviously we weren’t going to leave Teacup without having tried one of their sweets and so we split a warm honey comb chocolate fudge brownie with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream.

It’s not the first time I’ve dropped in here, and it won’t be the last. Teacup is my favourite go to cafe / restaurant in Manchester, and you can’t knock it.
