I visited here with my partner a couple of weeks ago, the staff were very pleasant and helpful. My partner is gluten intolerant, so we were given a separate menu to choose from and were very happy with the choice compared to every other coffee shop in the area. My partner is difficult to please and the waitress remained smiley... More

Popped in early for breakfast on Saturday. Very friendly staff and nice place to stop by. Hot chocolates were very nice on the cold morning :-)

We found this by accident, as it's tucked away in a corner. It's quite a small place, with extra seating outside, and it definitely ticks the 'quaint' box. I thought at first that it was going to feel cramped in there, but it doesn't. The staff were really friendly, and went out of their way to help, even though it... More

Visited here 4 years ago and still as nice as ever! Nothing was too much trouble. Had the warm sausage chorizo and potato salad and a cup of grandma's afternoon tea. Brilliant.

I love the tea emporium, my friend and I often visit for cake and tea, especially if we've had a few ales. I may be making a film in there, location see? Great place.

Called in the Tea Emporium after a walk around Ironbridge. My wife had a clotted cream tea and I had a toasted cheese and bacon panini and a portion of chips. We thought the cream tea was a bit of a joke. Pre-packed Rodda's Clotted Cream and pre-packed Robertsons jam. Honestly how hard is it to put a bit more... More

we wished we had had lunch here as well - the menu looked really good and the afternoon tea was first rate; there was a very good range of teas - even some we had not had, and that is saying something because we are very keen tea drinkers; certainly a great place to eat after seeing the wonderful iron...
