Boston Tea Party (BTP) has been our family go to place for breakfast for the last few years, it’s been a bit of a tradition for birthdays and special occasions. We’ve been to the Birmingham, Harborne, Worcester and Stratford Upon Avon cafes before and have always found a great relaxed atmosphere with delicious food. Therefore we were really excited to hear about a new café opening in Edgbaston and even more excited when we were given the opportunity to attend the preview events before it opened to the general public.
The Edgbaston BTP was created from an old bank and we were intrigued to see how they had renovated the building. The café was easy to find although there is no off road parking, we went on a Sunday and there was plenty of free on street parking, this may get a little more difficult in the week.
Outside of the building BTP have created a lovely garden courtyard feel to sit and watch the hustle and bustle of the world go by, unfortunately it was a rather soggy day when we went but will look forward to visiting on a drier day next time to test it out.
When we arrived we were greeted by a member of the team who then took us on a short guided tour of the building before showing us to our table, Mini was given some crayons and a children’s activity sheet to do.
The building had been beautifully renovated and had a modern and cool yet rustic vibe to it at the same time. There are a number of smaller rooms at the café, that can be hired out for private functions, along with a conservatory area and a stunning full height room with brick work exposed.
After perusing the extensive brunch menu we decided on pancakes with maple syrup and bacon for Mini with a chocolate milkshake and a babychino. Mr, despite being a meat lover, opted for the Sweetcorn Hash, along with a Latte and I went for scrambled eggs on toast with extra mushrooms and a Chai Latte. I do need to add that Chai Latte is my favourite hot drink and I am never disappointed by the offering at BTP, its always so creamy and wish a great dash of cinnamon.
I’d add that I’ve always found the range of children’s options at BTP to be extensive and really varied and they have given thought to wholesome options with a little treat element too.
I ordered at the counter and our drinks were quickly bought over to the table, along with a plastic set of cutlery for mini. Our food then arrived quickly, which is always a pleaser and looked absolutely delicious.
Mini quickly set to work devouring her breakfast, although we did have to stop her at one point from just drinking the syrup straight from the pot on her plate.
My scrambled eggs were creamy and comforting along with the granary toast with real butter, which was definitely a weekend treat.
Mr was very impressed with his sweetcorn hash, which comprised of sweetcorn fritters and poached eggs with grilled halloumi and avocado salsa.
Our waiter, Danilo, came to check on us twice to make sure everything was ok and was friendly to chat to and talked to Mini about her breakfast. In fact, we found all of the staff that we talked to on the day to be engaging and genuinely seemed interested in talking to us and ensuring we had a great experience.
We have always found BTP to be good value for the quality of the food received and we have always found a great variety and choice on the menu.
We greatly enjoyed our breakfast at the Edgbaston Boston Tea Party and are always looking forward to our next special occasion for a visit back again.
