First time trying this little place and was very impressed. Great selection of teas, cakes and sandwiches. Everything is freshly made. Staff are very friendly. Place did get very busy so might be worthwhile booking in advance. I shall return. Craig

Celebrating all things vintage, The Hidden Lane Tearoom harks back to a bygone era where drinking from the finest china and enjoying High Tea was simply a way of life. Open from 9 - 6, the tearoom is a place to come and enjoy breakfast, bruch, lunch, high tea and early dinner with a range of dishes, loose leaf teas, coffee and delicious home baking to suit all. With its hidden away location surrounded by colourful ofices, studios and workshops the Tearoom really is one of Glasgow's best kept secrets.
