Anyone for tea? Afternoon tea with sandwiches, scones and cake? Yes please, how frightfully civilized! Tea Rooms at the Botanic Gardens is the perfect place for a relaxing breakfast, lunch or indeed afternoon tea.
Situated between the two glasshouses in The Botanic gardens is the very quaint Tea Rooms, a Victorian house with a lovely outside terrace that’s ideal to sit and ponder in on a warm sunny day. The menu serves a small selection of breakfasts, soups & sandwiches for lunch and best of all cake and lots of it! Sponge cakes, chocolate cake, scones, fruit loaves and lemon tarts. The most popular item on the menu though is the afternoon tea served on a tiered cake stand with a lovely selection of sandwiches, cakes and sweet treats all washed down with a wide choice of specialty teas or well-made Barista coffees.
The staff are bright and cheerful and will always find a space for you to sit even on busy summer days. The terrace outside is the best place to sit (when the Scottish weather deems to allow it!), surrounded by beautiful blooms, shrubbery and rare plants and trees from around the world.
The Tea Room is usually opened throughout the year except if the weather is too oppressive in the winter months. Now that spring is almost here, the uncommonly mild March weather is enticing back the punters for a cosy afternoon libation.
