VINTAGE HEADPIECES AND BLOOMS INSPIRED BY BAKING: A SUMMER OF CLASSES AT DISH & SPOON HQ!

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2011

One of the great things about owning your own business is collaborating with other small indy businesses…everyone loves a good collab and ‘collab-ing’ we will be doing lots over the course of July and beyond. We’ve teamed up with some lovely talented Didsbury-based businesses, Silver Sixpence in Her Shoe and Laura Coleman Flowers to hold a schedule of fab classes in our tea room over the coming months.

Take a little looksy below at what we’ve got in store and then get booking (we suggest you don’t hang around as these things tend to sell out sharpish!)

SERVING UP AFTERNOON TEA TO THE GOOD PEOPLE OF DIDSBURY EVERY WEEKEND!

Wednesday, June 8th, 2011

Some of you may remember we had our first foray into Afternoon Tea earlier in the year when we marked Wills & Kate’s nuptials with a Royal version of this quintessentially English treat.

Well, it went down a storm with the good people of Didsbury, with lots of our lovely customers asking us when it wouldafternoon-tea-menu-final
become a permanent feature on our menu. So we listened and we’re pleased to announce that from Saturday 18th June we will be serving afternoon tea every weekend from 1pm.

The menu speaks for itself and all our little delicacies will be served on hand-made china cake tiers which are lovingly assembled by Helen Mather a local craftsperson.

You can also indulge in our fab tea range to wash down all those sweet treats. From our trusty fair-trade tea everyday brew to beautiful loose leaf black tea scented with rose, from the Leaf Company.

There aren’t that many options for afternoon tea in Manchester outside of the large hotels so we’re hoping we can provide a top-notch serving of cakey delights but in a slightly more relaxed and fun environment! Come down and sample for yourself!
