To A Tea: Bea's of Bloomsbury



One of the last places
I'm going to highlight
is a new twist 
on a London favorite.

has, up until recently,
been a treasure of the neighborhood of,
well, Bloomsbury. 

Their new location in the swanky retail spaces
around St. Paul's Cathedral
offers more people a chance
to meet for a sweet afternoon out
in Central London.





I got to meet my friend, Andrea,
and her darling baby, Mae, there
one afternoon early this spring.




I think this is another great recommendation
for anyone wanting to stay in Central London
and have tea in a less-stuffy (and less-expensive) setting
than most of the famous tea rooms in town offer.




While you can do their cute and quirky afternoon-tea
for a quite reasonable £19.00 per person,
the a la carte options are also really lovely...
and very affordable.





It's new location right by St. Paul's 
makes a stop at Bea's easy 
for anyone visiting the cathedral,
Shakespeare's Globe or the Tate Modern.

{It might have been a little untraditional for tea time,
but they make some mean banana bread...
and you should definitely have it toasted!}




The original Bea's location in Bloomsbury is at
44 Theobald's Road, WC1X 8NW.

Their new location at St Pauls can be found at 83 Watling Street, EC4M 9BX.
