Boston Tea Party are an independent chain of cafes with a mission to serve good things in great spaces. They focus on investing in the relationships they have with suppliers so food is free ranged and nourishing.
Each Boston Tea Party cafe is slightly different and as their website states that is to give a local feel. The Birmingham City Centre location is in a grand old building that has been kitted out with a rustic mix of wooden furniture. There are booths, sofas and long board room style tables that offer plenty of places to sit and enjoy the range of food and drinks.
There are actually 19 locations in total including Bristol, Cheltenham, Exeter and Plymouth. To see if there is one near you check here: http://www.bostonteaparty.co.uk/our_cafes/
The best thing, other than the food, is that it's dog friendly. That's right Bisbee was able to join us and that meant we could relax and enjoy brunch without having to rush to get back to her. She even made it on to the Boston Tea Party Facebook page!
Between the 4 of us our food selection included:
- Chorizo Hash
- Chipotle Chicken and Parmesan grilled sandwich
- Sweet Potato Fritters and dip (so, so, so good)
- Goats cheese, beetroot, candied pecan and orange salad
- And cake....lots of cake - which was freshly baked and out on the side just to tempt us.
Depending on how healthy and adventurous you are there is plenty of choice, you can get a raw veg smoothie or fruit smoothie! Plus if you are Vegan or Gluten Free you're find plenty of choice.
There is also a kids menu making it the perfect place for eating with the whole family.
Price wise most things are between £6 - £8 with sides at £3.25. Reasonable for the quality of food and amount you get.
Boston Tea Party also runs a blog with recipes: http://www.bostonteaparty.co.uk/blog/archive.php?cat=recipes and other interesting articles.
