Styled to resemble a French patisserie, BB Bakery Covent Garden offers a glorious selection of baked goods. Swathes of pewter leather and climbing plants bring a touch of magic to this quaint central London tea room.

Served in mismatched, vintage bone china, afternoon teas at BB Bakery are the café’s most prized offering. Fresh finger sandwiches and scones are served alongside a range of beautiful, hand-crafted pastries and cakes. Liquid accompaniments include fine fragrant teas from Benjamin & Barton and freshly squeezed orange juice, or flutes of chilled champagne.

Savoury goods with a continental twist are offered at BB Bakery in London. Enjoy an eclectic mix of flavoured quiches, freshly-fired pizza with salad, or a classic croque monsieur. Head to the colourful cake counter for a range of macarons, cookies, meringues and cakes, all perfectly complemented by loose leaf teas or rich coffees.

With goods baked daily by a fleet of French pastry chefs, BB Bakery in Covent Garden offers some of the most artful cakes and desserts in London. Covent Garden & Leicester Square tube stations are both 5 minutes’ walk away.

    We stayed at the private area downstairs to celebrate a baby shower! It was a beautiful set-up, no need to think of decorations, the room was beautiful and cosy. 12 people was about right. The food was yummy and beautifully presented. The staff are also lovely.

    My two daughters and I had a delightful afternoon tea experience at BB Bakery to celebrate our birthdays. Ok - it is pricey but the food was delicious - we especially loved the quiches - so nice not to just have sandwiches. The cakes were to die for - lovely flavours and a feast for the eye. Didn't really have room for the scones at the end but we did our best!! Staff were happy to box up any leftovers. The staff were very attentive and continued to offer refills of teas of our choice. All in all - a fabulous way to spend a couple of hours on a Sunday. Thank you!

    This was the best Afternoon Tea we have had, and we have had several at some of the larger hotels in London. The staff were great and the food wonderful. It was nice to have more variety for the savoury section, other than just sandwiches and the quiche was lovely. There was definitely too much food to eat there and we were able to take the remains home. Only criticism was that the table was a lttle small for 3, considering how much there is to go onto it.

    After a lovely weekend in London it was great to sit down and enjoy a delicious tea. The restaurant is bright and airy and the modern twist on a traditional concept of high tea creates a relaxed but 'special' atmosphere. The staff were friendly and welcoming despite the fact that we arrived a little late.
    The savoury snacks had a lovely range of fillings. The cakes were delicious and there was a generous selection to enjoy! We couldn't possibly eat them all and the scones and boxes to take them home is a wonderful idea. We really enjoyed our tea and would recommend it to anybody visiting the area.

    Food as always was lovely and so were the staff. Only comment would be we had the table nearest the door and the place is quite small so when people were waiting you felt very crowded - also there was a regular draft from the door. I think they need to try and have a proper waiting area

    Friendly service: our waitress and waiter were lovely. Nice atmosphere: not one of the starched cloth places. Very tasty food. Couldn't manage the scones ... so the waiter boxed them to take away: nice touch. Loved the pretty teapots! We could order different teas and have a refill. Music, but not too loud; crowded but still a good place to meet friends and relations and have a chat. Have been to several afternoon tea places over the years and this was definitely the nicest.
