V&A Dundee

Afternoon Tea

Enjoy an afternoon tea extravaganza

Our afternoon tea is beautifully designed to reflect our unique cultural blend of Scottish location and Japanese inspiration.

We've crafted this special treat to celebrate our local produce and heritage, with a twist inspired by our global influences.

Flavours and ingredients proudly representing Scotland include:

  • A mini Dundee cake
  • A "Cow Pie" in honor of Desperate Dan and D.C.Thomson
  • A jammy dodger decorated in the style of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Oak Room, now the heart of our Scottish Design Galleries
  • A "Jute" crulla (plaited bake) to dip into cranachan, as a nod to Dundee's industrial past
  • Anster cheese from Fife
  • Traditional Scottish haddock

Flavours of miso and katsu complete the afternoon tea, adding a touch of Japan.

This special dish pays homage to our design influences, our love of Dundee and our Scottish locality. A most delicious way to add to your day at V&A Dundee.
