On Saturday, I got up bright & early ready to meet my lovely friend Ali. I booked us into a belated birthday brunch for her at Betty Blythe, a cute little vintage tea room near Kensington Olympia.
Once we arrived, we got to choose a juice and then the lovely lady escorted us downstairs to our very own private tea room full of all things fancy dress.
After a quick search through all the options, we were pretty restricted and stuck to head pieces. It was time for the important part, the eating. It was lovely, we started with a juice and got to choose from a wide selection of teas (I also took a bottle of fizz along, you just need to pay a small corkage fee).
After the fizz had been opened, and the tea served (I had 3 drinks on the go by this point!). We got a choice of croissants – possible the biggest I have seen. Followed by Greek yoghurt & muesli, and finished with toast and jam.
I had been feeling a little under the weather leading up to this, but the fizz and tea certainly helped. I wish I could’ve taken this pink headband home.
After leaving Ali, I headed home for some rest and then for a wander around Hyde Park in the sunshine for some much needed fresh air. Sadly I went downhill from here and my cold well and truly took over. But the vintage brunch was a lovely treat for the weekend and I would highly recommend it. You can also pop in for breakfast or opt for afternoon tea. It is a great option for something a little different.
Here is to next weekend, a little trip to Poland (and hopefully minus the cold!)
