Litecraft City Guide: Manchester – Teacup on Thomas St

Litecraft City Guide: Manchester – Teacup on Thomas St

You’ll find this quirky little eatery nestled in the trendy back streets of Manchester’s Northern Quarter. This quaint tea shop is the brainchild of Mr Scruff, a Music producer, DJ and cartoonist. A lovely little gem worth a visit if you’re a fan of leaf teas, home baked cakes and hearty cosmopolitan grub.

Making your way along Thomas Street you can’t help but notice the large glass front and red painted exterior of Teacup and with its red alfresco seating area it’s hard to miss. In-keeping with the NQ’s warehouse style vibe the exterior has an industrial feel yet adds a playful twist with the red paint and assorted vinyl graphics in the window. A chalkboard stand welcomes you at the door with more playful tones, loose-lined cartoon characters reminiscent of Mr Scruff’s artwork dance around a menu list of scrumptious offerings.

The café sits on two levels, recently extended due to its popularity and an introduction of supper selections and a brunch menu. Upon entering you’re greeted by an array of freshly baked treats from hearty sized sponges and colourful cupcakes to designer pies, to the left an oversized spoon and fork structure gives a childlike wonderland feel, red painted metal flows through from the exterior giving a cosy friendly feel. Industrial style red and black pendants line the cake counter and brew station. There is definitely a cosmopolitan artisan yet English country feel to the café with the mix of industrial metals and quaint cottage style fabrics and wood furnished tables; young trendy waiters serve you in polka dot aprons holding charming cake stands.

Sitting at one of the country-style wooden tables, you’ll see the same arty loose-lined characters displayed in the menu. Order a leaf tea and expect an oversized teacup and a glossy red tea pot with an instruction manual. The in-house master baker has a selection of fresh baked bread along with a selection of whimsically flavoured jams and spreads from rose petal preserve to champagne flavour all served on quaint vintage style British crockery. Overall there is an eclectic feel both in the menu and with the décor, a mixture of playful nostalgia and a trendy industrial feel.

Teacup on Thomas St, 53-55 Thomas Street, Northern Quarter, M4 1NA
