My favourite meal of the day is brunch so imagine my delight when I was invited along to Boston Tea Party in Edgbaston Birmingham to sample some of their culinary delights.
When we first arrived at the cafe we were greeted by a hive of activity and cheery staff. Looking around the cafe I could tell instantly that it was a popular place for couples, colleagues and friends to get together. The cafe consists of several rooms all set in a light and modern decor that compliments the high beams and history of the building. There is also a beautiful glass atrium that allows the natural daylight to illuminate your way.
Now let’s be honest as much as the decor held my attention and provided a beautiful setting, I was excited to try the food.
The menu offers a whole host of mouth-watering dishes and drinks which will leave you torn as to what to choose.
My family and I ordered
- Gluten-free eggs benedict with extra bacon (mine).
- Normal eggs benedict.
- Poached egg and toast accompanied with bacon x2.
- Children’s pancake and maple syrup.
- Hot chocolate.
- Red berry iced tea x2.
Being a coeliac I am often cautious when having bread away from home. I have got over my fear of cross contamination and instead, I now find myself more concerned with how the bread will taste, If you have ever tried gluten-free bread I am sure you will understand this.
But OMG I can honestly say that the toast I had with my eggs benedict was divine, it was soft, tasty, easy to cut and swallow….. everything I remember bread to be. Add to that the perfect poached eggs and all the flavour of the hollandaise sauce along with the ham and you have the most amazing brunch dish. (my mouth is watering thinking about it)
My families thoughts on their food
The normal eggs benedict was described as absolutely delicious. The poached egg and toasts were also described as delicious with everyone clearing their plates and declaring they would definitely be returning. And our youngest member who at 18 months old found the syrup a huge hit, declared her meal mmmm and nice.
It wasn’t just the food that was a hit, the coffee was described as delicious and creamy, the cappuccino was delectable and the red berry iced teas were refreshing and scrumptious.
I must confess that as we made our way to the door we paid a visit to the cake counter and purchased some delights for later that afternoon before heading to the car full, happy and refreshed.
And if I had to recommend just one of the new cake range it would be the Swish Roll (reminiscent of black forest gateaux)
