Celebrating their third year in business (and surviving a global pandemic), the Tania’s Teahouse team has been working on an interiors and full menu revamp.
Awarded the ‘7th Most Instagrammable café in the World’ has meant it’s been even more important to stay on top of food and beverage trends. Step into the newly revamped cafe and you will still be able to enjoy the cosy and welcoming atmosphere Tania’s Teahouse is so well known for. Founder Tania Lodi has hand-picked new, more muted pastel elements from the wall colours, to the cushions and art hung in the frames. “We’ve been pleasantly surprised as to how many males we’ve seen coming to the café recently. We felt it was time to update our colour palette by injecting more muted pastel tones such as rose golds and sage tones, as opposed to the bright pinks we’ve been known for. It’s important for us to stay on trend” Tania says.
Regular customers will be pleased to find out that most of the cafe popular selfie spots have been transformed too. The front door now has a floral spurting tea pot, the frame adorned marble staircase features lots of new art and the ‘Hey There Habib-Tea’ wall has had its fourth chic remodel. For those looking for a more low-key catch-up or meeting spot to fill them full of creativi-tea, the top floor also welcomes some more snug booth-style seating, similar to that downstairs.
Behind the scenes, a new kitchen area has also been created. With the family run and funded cafe having proudly survived covid by pushing gift boxes stuffed with sweet treats, there is no sign of these orders slowing down. “We are beyond grateful that we managed to get through the scary lockdown days by innovating our product offering. This has pushed us to develop this offering further and to do this our pastry chef’s have required more space. We are so excited that our new kitchen space is up and running, allowing us to offer a lot more freshly baked, in-house treats”.
The Tania’s Teahouse menu has had a full revamp courtesy of Tania, the super creative kitchen team and a new head chef. The cafe’s opening hours are now from 8am-6pm, meaning all day breakfasts, healthy (and some naughty) lunch items, afternoon tea options and lots of drool-worthy desserts being on offer.
Having faced numerous health-related dietary restrictions it was important for Tania to ensure there “was something for everyone on the menu”. So guests will be catered for no matter whether they are gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan (or anything else), the café is also a peanut free zone.
With the kitchen upgrade comes lots of freshly baked bread, more delicious desserts, pastas made fresh daily and gluten-free alternatives for all of these. Premium ingredients are key to all of the new recipes, with fruits and vegetables being sourced locally where possible – to ensure maximum freshness – and all eggs being free-range. New gourmet ingredients will be making an appearance with an emphasis on using as many organic products as possible and the introduction of items such as Scottish smoked salmon and burrata.
