Ambiance and decorating well presented. Tiny small place. Cater for your taste. Affordable and most of all friendly staff. Recommended for families and friends. Parking is difficult though in this area.

The Cushion & Cake is small and tucked away, but well worth it. The Afternoon Tea is an absolute treat with stellar menu items, quality cakes and sweets, and a great variety of teas. I would go here weekly if I lived nearby!

My husband and I decided to try this establishment, after we had picked up one of their fliers. We were pleasantly surprised.It is rather small, but the food and service were excellent. We both chose a ham and whole grain mustard sandwich, served with homemade coleslaw,salad and crisps.This was accompanied by a very large pot of tea, and finished off... More

I took three youngsters (aged 7, 5 and 3) here for "tea" and cakes. While we may have shattered the peace and tranquility of this delightful little place - and did apologise to other customers for this! - the staff were very tolerant and helpful. The cake choice was excellent and the cakes themselves were outstanding. We had a lovely... More

Came here with a group of ladies to use the private room across the road. We made brooches and enjoyed afternoon tea with bubbly! I liked that they staff were super chill and gave enough help and instruction to get on with things so we could enjoy them and each other's company. Would definitely recommend for a hen!

I went with my daughter on a Saturday afternoon, having booked afternoon tea. The waitress was very welcoming and helpful. It was a warm day, and she suggested we might like iced tea. It was delicious! I took one bite of my scone and thought it was the best one I had ever tasted. Similarly with the Victoria sandwich and... More

I was in Glasgow for leisure whilst my partner was working and I did a Google maps search and found what I thought would be lovely for me, being on my own and not too far from where we were staying at Pacific Quay. What a lovely, sweet little tearoom which was fairly quiet but suited me and I did... More

I went to this cafe quite often a couple of years ago and really enjoyed it but moved away from the area so have not been back for a while, and returned with a friend for a trip down memory lane. I am very glad to see it is still here, and has expanded (I think?). It is very sweet... More

This little tea shop was a brilliant find! On a wander with my girlfriend and we were so pleased we went in. The caramelised onion and Brie toasted sandwich was a melty cheesy mouthful of greatness. Coffee and walnut cake was just the right level of coffeeness. Good tea, good food, and best of all, WE HAVE THE SAME PLATES!!... More

I feel like I am at home whenever I step into this tiny cosy tearoom. Staffs are extremely friendly and will introduce all their freshly made products enthusiastically. It is a great place for friends, family or solo. Highly recommend to people who appreciates spending time alone!
