Regular readers may have read in past articles that Sweet Tooth Cupcakery in Chorlton is one of my favourite places for cake. I try to always support independent retailers over huge chains and this is a great example.
There are several reasons for Sweet Tooth being in my “fail safe” bag of tricks when it comes to a much needed tea and cake break. Apart from the fact the cakes are delicious, they do vegan cakes every day, quite a rarity I’ve found, and believe me I’ve looked. (For new readers- I’m not actually a vegan, I have allergies to egg and dairy). They also do Gluten free every day. Take note fellow tea rooms!
Secondly the interior is adorable, they (whoever “they” are) do say- the best things come in small packages and in this case it’s true. With seating for no more than around eight people inside, there is more outside; Sweet Tooth welcomes you with open arms into the 1950’s. With tonnes of vintage china, G Plan units, pin up girls are collaged alongside the typical 50’s housewives and images of advertising from the era- taken from vintage ladies lifestyle magazines, all decorate the walls.
The fifties theme doesn’t stop at the interior, they serve milk shakes, malts, sherbets, soda floats (any of which can be made vegan). Perfect coffee from Illy and a variety of teas and hot chocolates complete the mix.
Lorna and the Cupcakettes are sure to give you a sweet welcome!
Can you name an independent retailer near you? There’s some research from O2 that suggests only 19% of people could name an independent retailer close by to where they live. O2 have developed an app called Priority Moments which is one way of scouting out the best independent shops in your local area.
O2 have kindly asked me to celebrate independents and the launch of Priority Moments for independent retailers by giving away £100 worth of vouchers for Sweet Tooth Cupcakery
