Bea's of Bloomsbury

Squaremeal Review of Bea's of Bloomsbury ?

Pretty as a picture thanks to floral displays, attractive wallpaper and matching chairs, Bea’s shows off its wares with mouth-watering displays of cakes and other goodies out front and a busy open kitchen at the back of the place. Lunch brings a lively, colourful assortment of salads, pasta and deli-style offerings – think cherry tomato and feta tart, bacon and Stilton frittata or roasted aubergine, piquillo pepper and haloumi sandwiches. Kick-starting breakfasts might range from homemade honey and coconut granola to toasted savoury muffins, while afternoon tea is the full works served on a quirky tea stand (from Undergrowth design). The food is matched by some classy caffeine hits (courtesy of a La Marzocco Linea machine), plus Valrhona hot chocolate and a bespoke version of spiced chai. You can book at weekends.

Id heard a lot about Beas – as a great cheap alternative to the expensive afternoon teas in town, so i was curious to see whether this was the case. General reviews on the net are mixed but most say the food is nice. The place itself is easy to miss – quite far down Theobalds Road so not really walking distance from Holborn. The cafe itself is very small – perhaps 6 or so small tables and at the back is an open kitchen. Im sure the idea is youre meant to be wowed by the constant baking going on...

    Half a Slice of Toast :: Half a Slice of Toast | Beas of Bloomsbury

    One of my best friends is getting married in the Summer and as one of her bridesmaids, she asked me if I wanted to accompany her to a wedding cake tasting session at Beas of Bloomsbury, since her fiancee couldn’t make it. I love the cakes from Beas so I jumped at the chance. And of course, it didn’t disappoint. We were given a consultation with one of the chefs and tried a multitude of delicious cupcakes – chocolate, red velvet, lemon, vanilla… all topped with different flavoured buttercream – pistachio, praline, lemon, strawberry. We ended up sharing 5 cupcakes between us, and by the end were stuffed and hyped on...

    Union Street Cafe amp valleys2vauxhall :: Beas at Farringdon

    So it is with sadness that I write Sami left us last week and is on to pastures new in terms of her career, but before she left I got invited into the clique and was given the chance to try one of hers and the girls guilty pleasures. Bea’s of Bloomsbury at Farringdon is right next to the mainline and tube station and has a shop window adorned with tempting but naughty looking treats. Many a time I have walked past this takeaway cake boutique purposely looking in the opposite direction, even striking up conversation with the charity volunteers or Gymbox promotion staff, anything to stop myself walking in as I knew...
