Eating Out West Midlands

Review: Brunch @ Boston Tea Party, Birmingham

14th October 2013

IMG_3248Boston Tea Party is a large Cafe in Birmingham City Centre. It’s part of a chain of cafe’s and we headed there as it was only a stone’s throw from our hotel after a night out on the town and we were in need of a bit of food tlc!

The counter

In Boston Tea Party you order at a long counter thats covered in tempting looking sweet treats before you food is brought over to you. They have a large range of teas and coffees as well as organic juices and smoothies. It was quite busy, as you’d expect at 10am on a Sat morning, so it was disappointing there was only one person on the tills, who was simultaneously taking orders and making the drinks – making the ordering quite a lengthy process which was unfortunate.

Coffee

The menu was large and had many options for brunch as well as lunch. It was good to see healhy choices such as Hazelnut & Almond Granola as well as the more traditional cooked breakfasts. As usual for brunch I was more than predictable and went for Eggs Royale. It was definitely one of the most well presented I have had on my travels and the eggs were cooked well and runny. The only fault was the hollandaise, although nice and creamy, lacked that acidity that a hollandaise needs to really sing. Hubby went for the Cornish Stack -Hogs (white) pudding, smoked streaky bacon & onions, fried bread topped with gruyere cheese, garlic and thyme mushrooms, roasted vine cherry tomatoes & a poached egg. He enjoyed this although thought it was a little on the small side. ( I know – the description of it sounds huge, but it really wasn’t!) The white pudding was full of delicate herb and spice flavour, again a well cooked egg and juicy tomatoes. It was certainly a little bit different and white pudding a change to the traditional black.

We enjoyed this breakfast/brunch and it was convenient to the area of Birmingham we were staying in. I’m sure we would go back if we were in the area, but if we were choosing somewhere for brunch, we’ve had a bit better.

    Lovely looking food! We haven’t tried here yet because we live over the Brindley Place side and Corp St’s a bit far to go for breakfast but looks like it’s worth it 🙂
