Pear Mill Vintage Tea Room • Vintage Warehouse

Coffee, Cakes, & Vintage

Nestled in the historic Pear Mill lies one of Stockport’s true hidden gems. Whether you are interested in vintage or not this cafe really embraces its unique setting.

Upon entering Pear Mill (follow the instructions on the bicycle outside) you are greeted by an expansive warehouse displaying all kinds of vintage whatnots.

As we meandered through the vintage artwork, clothes, pottery, furniture & more we were taken a back by the amount of items on offer.

The vintage tea room is located at the rear of the floor which we were glad to find as all that rooting around resulted in the need for a pick me up.

The cafe sits next to beautiful old windows that on the right day; draw in incredible lighting that enhance the experience.

The cafe offers the usual vintage cafe trappings such as handmade cakes, milkshakes, glass bottled Dandelion and Burdock drinks and lemonades and of course a variety of teas and coffee.

If you are on the lookout for some new items or just fancy a visit to an interesting cafe we highly recommend a trip.
