Anteaques is our favourite tea house in Edinburgh. The staff are professional, and truly care about the tea they serve. Cedric, the proprietor, is warm and knowledgeable, and always ready with an accurate description of a tea or a suggestion.
Their locally-made cakes and truffles are the perfect compliment. The front room is light and busy, with a bright window, and shelves of large caddies amongst the antique china sets and brass scales. The back room provides the comfortable, eclectic charm of a Victorian auntie’s parlour.
Opening hours are limited, so reservations are essential. A wonderful shop.
