An Cupan Tae

An Cupan Tae is Gaeilig for a cup of tea, and is the name of a specialty tea shop newly opened at Spanish Arch in Galway city. It is charming, and reminesant of having afternoon tea in your Grannies parlor. 




.

All their cakes are home made and delicious. 
It is interesting that we don't have more Irish tea shops, coffee is a relatively modern beverage in Ireland. I don't remember any specialists coffee shops growing up and when visiting friends or relatives one was always offered a cup of tea. It is the drink of choice in times of stress and toil (if you are not having a whiskey) 
and Mrs. Doyle brought this to a whole new level
