Bea’s of Bloomsbury

44 Theobald Road, London, WC1X 8NW

The view from my table at Bea's of Bloomsbury

Bea’s of Bloomsbury is a small but enticing cafe that was full the first time I went in and only had one table free the second time I went in. They have a good selection of food and cakes and had a variety of teas available. I could have chosen from salads, flapjacks, meringues, brownies, German chocolate cake, chocolate truffle cake… I was being healthy so I didn’t have any but I sure was tempted.

I only had 15 minutes to spare but I managed a whole pot of extremely nice Earl Grey in that time and would have loved to have had the full afternoon tea. It was very busy when I went on a weekday afternoon though so it would be worth booking a table if you’re going specially (and double checking the times they serve afternoon tea). Definitely one worth another visit.

Teapot? Yes.
Leaf tea? Yes, ‘Jinc’ brand tea which I hadn’t come across before but is very lovely.
