SquareMeal Review of Betty Blythe

A bijou homage to the 1920s, Betty Blythe (named after an early Hollywood sex symbol) is buried among the quiet residential streets behind Olympia. This cute tearoom & deli continues to thrive thanks to the steadfast patronage of local residents. The eclectic ground-floor room squeezes in a few tables among the displays of cakes, sandwiches, quiches & salads (all made in-house), with little more space to spare upstairs. Afternoon tea is taken seriously, & is served on silver platters by staff dressed in 1920s garb as Gatsby-era jazz swings from the speakers. Children’s tea parties – complete with face painting or biscuit decoration – pull in the yummy mummies. If the sun is shining, take advantage of the picnic service & grab a hamper full of goodies to devour in Holland Park.
