"I have had wonderful feedback about the quality of food and look of the event. Well done!" (Laura)

As it used to be ...


Who can resist dainty sandwiches, cream filled meringues and a good old fashioned Victoria sponge? All set off by:

  • An immaculately set table
  • A selection of delicate period china
  • Jan’s own embroidered tea cloths and napkins
  • Original 3-tiered cake stands
  • Gleaming silver teapots and sugar tongs

We specialise in baking and catering for private vintage afternoon tea parties in your own home, garden or venue as well as larger Afternoon Tea Events for fund raising or corporate events, funeral catering, family celebrations.

We serve our teas in East Lothian and Edinburgh. For other locations, please enquire.
