Description: Now, this place has already been named 'Best place for Tea' by those good folk at Time Out.
'Bea's of Bloomsbury' now has a dedicated tea menu, and this was even before the accolade afforded to them by Time Out...no mean feat then!
Boutique food at its best, inspiring cuisine, artisan cakes and pastries, and the finest teas and coffees are all produced with dedicated care and attention... At Bea's of Bloomsbury, they believe if they offer something, it should be the best they can offer.
Bea's of Bloomsbury also strives to make a difference in the world - they compost all food waste, recycle any possible paper, plastic and aluminum, and have designed the packaging to be as environmentally friendly as possible.
They also run on 100% green energy, use energy efficient induction cooking methods and locally source as much of the food as possible, using only sea or road freight. They even have their own rooftop garden to supply herbs and vegetables during the summer months.
And to top it all, this year they are raising money for the 'Sick Children's Trust' by holding a 'Big Chocolate Tea' during the inspired week that is choclate week - time for a visit then!
