The Perfect Cuppa in Belper is a traditional English tea-room and cafe offering quality loose-leaf tea and smooth Italian freshly-ground coffee alongside warming hot chocolate, creamy milk shakes and Fentimans artisan soft drinks. All cakes, scones and quiche are made by the owner, adding a personal touch to this pretty venue where you will receive table service with a smile!
The cafe has ample space for pushchairs, wheelchairs or shopping trolleys and with the imminent arrival of a portable ramp for our front and rear steps (courtesy of Accessible Belper) we will soon be fully accessible to all. There are highchairs available and smaller portions on our menu as we aim to cater for all the family. We are also dog-friendly and welcome well-behaved pets into our cafe.
The rear garden is a tranquil sun-trap in the summer months and has a light show from the adjacent Memorial Gardens during December! It's the perfect place to sample our cream teas - whether Sweet with a home-made plain or fruit scone, clotted cream and our home-made jam or Savoury with a home-made cheese scone, cream cheese and our home-made red onion marmalade. If it's too chilly outside then The Snug upstairs may be just the place instead. For a really indulgent treat why not try our full Afternoon Tea (booking required): sandwiches, mini scones, jam & cream, cakes and a mini dessert - all home-made in our kitchen on site and served with tea or coffee.
Our lunch offerings are equally tasty: paninis, jacket potatoes, sandwiches (one-slice options available), salads and our home-made soup and quiche. If it's just a snack you need then we have a range of options including crumpets, teacakes and of course our delicious range of cakes and scones including gluten-free choices.
Here at The Perfect Cuppa we are proud to shout about our 5* Hygiene Rating and also our TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence, both of which illustrate our commitment to providing quality food at an affordable price and with a level of service which many people already appreciate - check us out! We have also more recently been listed in the Derbyshire Food & Drink guide.
