Our Lovely Little Tea Shop

A Proper Cup, which seats 30, enhances your visit to our store as well. In addition to being able to offer our guests their own pot of freshly brewed tea or Stumptown coffee, we often create special treats themed to an event, such as Newbery Award cupcakes at a Rebecca Stead/Patricia Reilly Giff event, or cupcakes sporting color images of book jackets for a launch party.

We offer free wifi making us a great place for hardworking writers. Our delicious treats also make this the ideal place to do homework and avoid the struggles!

Mainly our tea shop furthers the mission of our store in that it encourages families to slow down and enjoy the creation of happy memories of connection.  For those on the go, we do offer take out.

A large or small package of fresh leaf tea makes a beautiful gift with a small porcelain teapot.

Ask about our baby showers, tea for grown up friends and book clubs, in addition to our children's birthday parties. 

Pls. note, A Proper Cup closes 1/2 hour before the closing of

The Voracious Reader.
