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.
