With the magnificent cathedral as its backdrop, Bea’s of Bloomsbury St Paul’s offers a menagerie of hand-crafted cakes and sweet treats, plus now-legendary afternoon teas. This cosmopolitan, glass-fronted space offers views out onto the neighbouring bustle of the city.

Bea’s tea room inSt Paul’s is famed for its afternoon-time offering, which includes signature cakes as well as traditional finger sandwiches, freshly-baked scones with heaps of clotted cream and jam, and a choice of fine tea blend. A flute of chilled champagne can be enjoyed for extra-special indulgence, and gluten-free and vegetarian teas are available at prior request.

Piled-high stands of hand-crafted marshmallows, meringues, brownies, cookies and cupcakes adorn the interior of Bea’s in London, with all baked goods featuring Bea’s elaborate signature designs.

A fairy tale retreat decorated with teapot lampshades, find Bea’s of Bloomsbury just 2 minutes’ walk from St Paul’s Tube Station.

    Amazing food, Amazing service, when we walked in we felt a little tension between the coworkers, but they were really really sweet, gave a great introduction of the food and we felt well taken care off and well served..

    Would have been nice to have one cake each rather than having to cut things up. The scones were the best feature - absolutely delicious. Staff were very friendly. Overall, bit overpriced for what it was especially as I've had better afternoon teas at bigger places for that cost.

    My husband and I had the champagne afternoon tea for two and had a wonderful experience. The sandwiches were adorable and tasty. We loved the assortment of desserts and the scones were perfect. The wait staff was amazing and attentive. We were also able to have two types of tea. Fantastic.

    It was a nice experience. My partner and I ordered the £26 afternoon tea upstairs. Nice items on cake stand. My Americano coffee was lovely but the little cakes were a bit too sweet for me eventhough I've got a sweet tooth. My partners got excited facebooking her friends. We would visit more often if it wasn't for the price of the train fares. We will go back again.

    I took my 16 y.o. step-daughter to Bea's for a birthday treat. I think afternoon tea is generally a hit with teenage girls, but the staff at Bea's where really lovely. She's a vegetarian, which they catered for without an issue, and according to Miss 16 Bea's makes one of the best Chi Tea Lattes she's every had. We had plenty to eat, starting with the savoury brioches, scones and cupcakes. After that we were so full we took the treats from the top plate home in a box.

    Absolutely gorgeous cream tea, couldn't have asked for anything more. Warm scones, lashings of cream & jam. Cute, tasty little brioche buns with delicious fillings, including the veggie ones, luscious little cakes and perfect cupcakes, with lots of tea and coffee. Loved the teapot ceiling lights. Very friendly atmosphere, we were made very welcome.
