To A Tea: Bea's of Bloomsbury

One of the last places
I'm going to highlight
is a new twist 
on a London favorite.

has, up until recently,
been a treasure of the neighborhood of,
well, Bloomsbury. 

Their new location in the swanky retail spaces
around St. Paul's Cathedral
offers more people a chance
to meet for a sweet afternoon out
in Central London.

I got to meet my friend, Andrea,
and her darling baby, Mae, there
one afternoon early this spring.

I think this is another great recommendation
for anyone wanting to stay in Central London
and have tea in a less-stuffy (and less-expensive) setting
than most of the famous tea rooms in town offer.

While you can do their cute and quirky afternoon-tea
for a quite reasonable £19.00 per person,
the a la carte options are also really lovely...
and very affordable.

It's new location right by St. Paul's 
makes a stop at Bea's easy 
for anyone visiting the cathedral,
Shakespeare's Globe or the Tate Modern.

{It might have been a little untraditional for tea time,
but they make some mean banana bread...
and you should definitely have it toasted!}

The original Bea's location in Bloomsbury is at
44 Theobald's Road, WC1X 8NW.

Their new location at St Pauls can be found at 83 Watling Street, EC4M 9BX.

  1. this is my favorite favorite! they also have an amazing weekday lunch menu at their Holborn location - but it's tiny so you have to grab a seat when/where you can :)

  2. What a fun place! I love the the fabric on the seating and what are those with the legs? Cake trays? Yet another place I'll have to visit when next in London. Thank you Lauren!

  6. What a neat looking place!! When I make my way over to London (whenever that may be) I can't wait to refer back to all your recommendations. Although I'll probably have to spend at least a year there to cover everything! Which is a ok with me! :)
