It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Nope, not Christmas, National Afternoon Tea Week. A whole seven days filled with cakes, sandwiches, scones and delicious drinks. Half a fortnight of classiness. Quarter of a month of stuffing your face with delights. What could be better?
To celebrate this huge calendar date, we’ve put together a list of the best afternoon teas in Liverpool. Get your teapots out!
The Vincent Cafe
Forget London and The Ritz, there are two (two!) very unique afternoon teas available at this Liverpudlian gem. Not only can you feast on a traditional afternoon tea menu, but there’s an Asian afternoon tea too. With a selection of sushi and Asian treats, with a cocktail thrown in, this one is not to be missed. Relax in opulent decor and a smart-casual dress code: this is a great spot to while away an afternoon.Reserve here
Anywhere that does a kids afternoon tea is welcome at this time of year. Verdant on Allerton Road not only does a great selection of afternoon teas for adults, including chef’s petite fours and warm scones, it has a selection for the little ones too. Choose from mini-sandwiches and great cakes with a selection of kid-friendly drinks that will make you wish it was afternoon tea week every week.Reserve here
60 Hope Street
If variety is your bag, this Liverpool stalwart will be right up your street. Entering its 16th year serving traditional British food, they are still serving up some of the best afternoon teas in Liverpool. Choose from Classic, Prosecco, Champagne or Mad Hatter’s Afternoon Teas and relax in the understated elegance of one of Liverpool’s best loved spots.Reserve here
London Carriage Works
If there’s one thing people from Liverpool do well, it’s dressing up and going all out. If you’re one of them, this is the place for you. Get glam in the gorgeous surroundings and treat yourself to their classic afternoon tea with a spot of fizz thrown in. Start off with classic cucumber, coronation chicken or egg and cress sandwiches and round it all off with their delicious baked cakes.Reserve here
