A CITY restaurant is hosting a one-off afternoon tea with an Italian twist.

Eusebi Deli, in the West End, will be offering the Italian exclusive to mark Afternoon Tea Week which runs from August 12 to 18.

The afternoon tea was created by the Duchess of Bedford Anna Russell in the mid1840s and centuries on, the treat has become a great British tradition. 

Now the Eusebi team said they are serving up a variety of both sweet and savoury delicacies with a glass of Prosecco, an Aperol Aperitivo or a mocktail on Friday, August 16.

Eusebi Deli has been based in Glasgow for over 40 years starting life out in the East End before moving to their current Park Road location.

Owner Giovanna Eusebi said: “We are delighted to be holding Eusebi’s first ever afternoon tea to celebrate Afternoon Tea Week.

"My family has been working to deliver an authentic Italian experience in the heart of Glasgow for the past four decades, and our afternoon tea will be a new way for our loyal customers to enjoy our freshly-made focaccias, cakes and pastries.”

The Eusebi afternoon tea will be available on Friday, August 16 only, with tables available from 3pm to 5pm.

The afternoon tea will be priced at £35 per person.

Bookings must be made in advance and reservations can be made by contacting Eusebi Deli on 0141 648 9999.
