Teacup Kitchen proudly presents The Cafe at the Museum

February 8th, 2016

Cafe at the Museum - 1200725

We are very pleased to officially announce the opening of our youngest sister The Cafe at the Museum!

It all started with our lovely Teacup Kiosk in the main hall of The Manchester Museum, where we were offering our famous cakes and artisan coffee. In the meantime, we initiated the refurbishment of the old Museum’s Cafe Muse and transformed it into a new science-inspired version of Teacup. But don’t worry, the kiosk is still in its place if you need a quick caffeine fix.

We are very proud to call Manchester’s most spetacular museum our new second home and that’s why we have introduced some special menu items to celebrate our location. We especially recommend our milkshakes – Strawberrysaurus Rex or Tutan Cacao Moon. Like the Teacup in the Northern Quarter, The Cafe at the Museum is serving an impressive selection of loose leaf teas alongside fresh homemade meals and delicious hand crafted cakes baked at our own Teacup Bakery. The menu consists of hearty breakfasts, sandwiches, salads and fresh snacks and protein additions.

The Cafe at the Museum is open everyday from 9AM to 5PM.

2016 Specials Menu Launch!

January 31st, 2016

The wait is over – Teacup’s first 2016 Specials menu is finally revealed! Our talented chef Kalegh has been working really hard to create a great selection of fresh treats for all food lovers. You can find the full menu above in the Specials section.

We were lucky enough to try them before the official launch and our personal favourite was the succulent chicken with pomegranate molasses, fresh pomegranate seeds served with roasted vegetables and a bulgar wheat salad. Honestly, it was gone from our plate in less than 2 minutes!


Another new special – Pork & Apple; slow roasted pork belly on a bed of polenta with roasted apples and a caramel sauce. It’s the kind of hearty meal that will get you through these final wintery days.


And what about some Ox Cheek Goulash cooked long and slow for that extra flavour?


Don’t worry vegetarians! We have plenty of options for you too; our Winter Garden Salad with roasted butternut squash & parsnips with caramelised shallots and red onion, goats cheese, beetroot, toasted pine nuts and cumin seeds and a new healthy addition Superfood Salad of the Week.


New Christmas menu available!

December 14th, 2015

So here it is, the time of the year we all love – Christmas! And what else do we all love? Food, indeed! That’s why we decided to connect these two and create the new Christmas specials. And trust us, this year it’s big…

Fancy some Goose? Yes, we have Goose! Panfried breast served with cranberry chutney and celeriac three ways. And what about a game-changing Game Pie, served with seasonal vegetables, creamy mashed potato and gravy? Vegetarians don’t worry, we have options for you too – delicious Winter Garden Salad (roasted squash, celeriac, parsnips and kale, caramelised shallots and red onion with goats cheese, toasted pine nuts, cumin seeds and a truffle vinaigrette) and a Mushroom and Gruyere tart with cheese in shortcrust pastry and served with roasted beets and a chestnut salad.

Did we mention our sides are new too? Now you can upgrade your meal with Winter Greens with Walnut Butter, Deep Fried Stuffing Balls, Roast Cauliflower and Chestnuts, and special Pigs in blankets aka chipolatas wrapped in pancetta.

And how can we celebrate Christmas without some delicious desserts? You can choose between Warm Mince pies with a Brandy cream and Chocolate and Cherry Delice. Not an easy decision…

Merry Christmas to one and all!
