I know, it's been a while and I apologise for that. I moved back to London in October and since then life has just been incredibly busy. But I'm back with a post about CAKE...
Last weekend I visited a cute little cafe 'Bea's of Bloomsbury' for a catch up over a delicious Afternoon Tea with my friend Martha. This time last year we went to South Kensington for a Detox Afternoon tea which I wrote about here. This year we decided to ditch the carrot sticks and indulge ourselves. It was such a lovely experience, I thought it needed to be shared!
The pièce de résistance...a variety of sandwiches made with focaccia bread, home made scones, beautiful cupcakes, chocolate AND blondie brownies, raspberry marshmallows, all topped off with some very cute little meringues. I definitely wouldn't call this a 'traditional' Afternoon Tea. They also have a great selection of teas, we both decided on 'Vanilla' which was surprisingly yummy as it wasn't too overpowering.
If you'd like to just pop in for a snack Bea's also have a delicious looking collection of cakes. We even came across a 'Duffin'...I was very tempted to buy one and take it home for later. But I didn't need to because we still had cakes left from our tower of treats, which were kindly boxed up for us.
I would recommend booking a table if you are planning on visiting Bea's at the weekend for an Afternoon Tea. The cafe was completely full and even when you do book the slot is for a limited amount of time.
The Afternoon Tea is £19 per person which I think is pretty reasonable for London. The friendly atmosphere and delicious food make it even more worth while. As you can tell, I only have good things to say about this place!
