We had been walking around Manchester all day when we stumbled upon the signs below.
It was like it had been put on our way on purpose.
I mean, helloooo, cake and tea, have you met me ever? #CakeDiva
We followed the signs to the cutest little tea house there ever was.
Nestled behind the cathedral, Proper Tea is the coziest place you could imagine.
Perfect for resting your worn-out feet with a nice cuppa and a slice of homemade cake from the counter.
Once you’ve made your choice, put your feet up, all that’s left to do is pour yourself a nice, hot cup of tea.
Soon, the lovely staff will bring plate after plate of incredible goodies to have with your tea.
The best thing to do is covering the whole table with plates of homemade cakes and scones.
Including gigantic fluffy heart-shaped scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam.
And slices of whatever cake the charming staff recommends.
For us, it was this incredible pistachio & rose cake.
Slather the scones with just a bit too much cream & jam and enjoy the time being.
A brilliant place for a spot of proper tea (!!) with some of your favourite people.
And the perfect break before continuing your exploration of Manchester’s most beautiful sights, including the nearby cathedral.
A true gothic gem with glorious late-medieval wooden furnishing.
Cake, tea and architecture; an afternoon well spent indeed!

Heart shaped scones – fancy! Proper Tea sounds a nice place for a well needed rest, I’ll keep it in mind as hoping to go to Manchester soon. I was just reading about Teacup Kitchen today in Manchester, that looks a lovely coffee shop too 🙂
So many lovely places for tea & coffee in Manchester! Let me know where you go when you visit, I’m already building up a list for the next time I go!!
I love Proper Tea! I always wonder whether people manage to find Manchester’s best places just by wandering & I’m happy to see that you did – well some of them!
Hope you had a fantastic time here.
I absolutely did! So many great little places and everything seemed so authentic compared to London! Would love to hear what you recommend for my next visit though!
