Happy Saturday! We hope you are well today and maybe have some afternoon tea plans this weekend!
One of our lovely friends recently visited Bea's of Bloomsbury in St Pauls for afternoon tea. St Pauls is one of four locations where Bea's of Bloomsbury currently serves hungry Londoners tea, coffee and most importantly cake! With quirky surroundings, great food and special events we've always fancied sampling the delights that Beas has to offer so we were eager to hear about Sophie's experience.
Here is what Sophie had to say.....
Bea's of Bloomsbury is a coffee shop just near St Pauls Cathedral that offers a good value, casual, no frills afternoon tea, featuring its popular cupcakes and mini brownies. We loved the vintage setting, décor and quirky teapot lights hanging from the ceiling.

There was a selection of teas to choose from, followed by a platter of mini baguettes and then a two tire selection of cakes. There was two of everything - scones, selection of mini brownies, cupcakes, fruity marshmallows, cake bites, macaroons and chocolate meringues.
|Sophie's afternoon tea - lots of sweet treats!|
The cakes were lovely and we enjoyed the variety although this was not a dainty afternoon tea - everything was quite big and despite going there for lunch we got full very quickly. Bea's happily provided us with little boxes to take our leftover cakes home.
Unfortunately Bea's has not quite perfected the niceties of attentive service that we expected from an afternoon tea experience, we found it more coffee shop than afternoon tea experience. However, it is the perfect place to enjoy a good catch up over a cuppa and plenty of cakes in a quirky environment. They also offer lots of themed events and movie nights - details can be found on their website

Don't those cakes look amazing though....and such a great selection to tempt your taste buds! Here is another photo from the Bea's of Bloomsbury website which will leave you drooling....
