Teacup Kitchen, 55 Thomas Street, Manchester, M4 1NA – Visit Now
Once a purveyor of funky goods as well as hot drinks, this Northern Quarter favourite is now just a stylish and firmly Mancunian café, and it’s considerably better. Carefully-coiffed bohemian types preside over a counter stuffed with designer pies and hearty cake wedges; teapots brim with owner Mr Scruff’s very decent teas, coffees are courtesy of Union Hand-Roasted. The emphasis is very much on tea-with-cakes, the tea menu alone running to several pages and each cuppa coming with strict instructions and a tiny egg timer to ensure the perfect brew. Evening opening and a full license have shaken things up a bit, but it’s still a popular choice for a daytime cuppa. One caveat: service can be a tad uneven.
