Cherish Vintage Tearoom & Emporium is a much loved business owned by Louise Pickering. Having grown up in a family of foodies it was inevitable that the bug would be inherited! After looking for suitable premises for around 3 years, the old Post Office building in Gullane was the perfect place. With great support from the local community, family and friends the old Post Office building was lovingly converted into Cherish Vintage Tearoom & Emporium. Enjoy a trip back in time as you listen to nostalgic music, dine from original vintage china and browse the unique items in the Emporium.

Louise is the proprietor of Cherish Vintage Tearoom & Emporium. Her love of food and cooking stems from a childhood spent helping out her mum at a local food training college as well as visiting her uncle who worked as a patissier at many famous London hotels including The Ritz! Louise has enjoyed travelling and tasting her way around the world and has taken part in numerous training courses focusing on international cuisine. In 2013 Louise gained a place in the final of a Masterchef style competition where she had the opportunity to create an historical menu and cook in a professional restaurant for 50 people. Having left a teaching career to pursue her dream, Louise is very excited to be combining her passion for food and history by opening Cherish Vintage Tearoom & Emporium. She looks forward to welcoming you soon!

Returning from serving in the Falklands, Gary opened his own café in the late 1980s in Kircaldy, Fife. He then went on to manage the famous ‘Old Howgate Inn’ near Penicuik in Midlothian. Recently, Gary has enjoyed making jams and chutneys which have gone down a storm at local craft fairs. Gary enjoys football and is an avid armchair supporter of his beloved Glasgow Rangers.

Gary is joining the Cherish team part time and I’m sure his wealth of experience and expertise will prove to be invaluable.
