The Little Teapot, Kilbirnie
The Little Teapot is the sister of the Carlton Cafe just down the block, where the food is all created. Although high teas are The Little Teapot’s main gig, you can pop in for tea, coffee and cake. But pick your moment as they’re often solidly booked for high teas (however, there’s nothing stopping you doing a dine’n’dash with takeaway goodies!).
The Tea Total selection was long and interesting, with selections like cranberry and carrot fruit tea, peach and rose sweet Sunday, feng shui green tea and more, but I couldn’t go past my favourite chamomile flowers. And we were presented with a teapot each, in its own individually knitted cosy. Nice.
The food included baby quiche and scones, tiny cupcakes, baby friands, cucumber and mixed sandwiches, mushroom pasties, chocolate mousse and more. All perfectly bite sized (so this won’t have to double as lunch). And the decor was pink and cute, as teashops are supposed to be.
I left feeling comfortable, not too sugared out, and thinking I’d definitely return.
If you’re not a tea drinker you can swap your tea out for hot chocolate or coffee, and those who did seemed to enjoy them.
Nice one Kilbirnie.
