We discovered a lovely little tea room last weekend in South Queensferry called Once Upon a Time. We had been for a walk along the water and were looking for somewhere to take the kids for ice cream. This cute little sweet shop and cafe caught our eye.

The shop part is decorated with candy stripe wallpaper and the shelves are filled with sweetie jars. Then in the cafe at the back they have the most amazing Quentin Blake Willy Wonka wallpaper and Golden Ticket cushions on the seats. It’s so quirky, I love it!

Traditonal sweets in a shop

We ordered ice cream sundaes for the kids. They came with one scoop of ice cream topped with chocolate sprinkles, marshmallows, syrup and a wafer. We got a strawberry and a chocolate one and they both wolfed them down. I had a delicious mint hot chocolate with cream and marshmallows.

There was a box of book and toys in the corner, which was very helpful in keeping the kids entertained as we finished up. The staff were nice and friendly too. Such a nice little place, just perfect for a rainy afternoon with the family!
