Places To Visit In Manchester | Tea and Cake at Teacup, Northern Quarter

For years I floated on by not having a clue that Teacup even existed. I felt robbed when Alexa kept telling me about it and I questioned why nobody had told me about it before.

I can't even say it's Manchester's best kept secret, because Alexa is from York and she knew about it before me! This place is a dream.

I'm always slightly disappointed with cafes in Manchester, specifically Northern Quarter, as there's usually a distinct focus on coffee. I hate coffee, what's the big deal? But, if you're a tea lover, like me, you'll be in heaven here. There are so many teas to choose from like Jasmine Pearls, Organic Pink Rose Buds and Detox Hangover Cure. You'll see in the picture above that there's some sand timers, well that's so you brew your tea for the correct amount of time! Perfect, huh?

If you're not a tea drinker there's smoothies, coffees, juice, milkshakes and infusions to choose from too.

The last time I went I had a cheese tart and it was deeeelish!!

My favourite thing about Teacup is their great selection of egg dishes. I'm an egg fanatic. Scrambled, poached, fried, dippy - oh dippy! My favourite from their egg selection is the Florentine. A bagel with 2 poached eggs, spinach, hollandaise and capers. Yummmm!

But if you think you're gonna get away without having a cake, oh haha how you are mistaken!

These are cakes, but on a whole other level. Yes, those cups above are made of chocolate.

Now before you even begin to think that this place will be out of your price range, let me tell you that it won't be! Check their menus out on their website to see for yourself!

All pictures were found on the Teacup facebook page (and there's plenty more for you to drool over there too).

You'll find Teacup in the Northern Quarter - 55 Thomas Street, Manchester, M4 1NA.
