Breakfast at Boston Tea Party, Bath

Those long-time followers of my blog out there (hi-five to you all) might (probably not, but might) remember that I blogged about Boston Tea Party a couple of years ago in Bath. You might recognise it because it is a chain around the UK, mostly in big University cities, I’ve noticed. Anyway, I enjoyed it, but it was small and cramped, so my overall experience wasn’t overwhelming.

So you can imagine my excitement when I discovered a second spot in Bath had opened up. And not a tiny little spot, either. A massive, beautiful space, close enough to me that I can nip back if I forgot anything (I forgot my phone during this day) or pop down for a takeaway breakfast (I’m eating a takeaway croissant and sipping on a soy flat white as I type).

They’ve got a good system going. Just remember your table number.

AND LOOK AT THESE CAKES.

Good job trying not to drool over them as you wait in line. You’ll probably end up getting attached and having to order one of everything. I’m not judging.

Alex had come over from Cardiff for a visit, and we had spent the night watching TV shows, drinking wine and eating pizza. So before she headed back, the girls and I took her out for some brunch lovin’.

Cue OJ’s and coffees.

The food here is simple and good. Nothing mind-blowing, but satisfying enough to have you coming back.

Alex ordered Poached Eggs on Toast with a side of Smoked Salmon.

Hannah went for pretty much the same, but with a side of avocado too. I think it might have been the Smoked Salmon, Scrambled Eggs & Avocado on Sourdough Toast but with poached eggs instead.

Paired beautifully with and Iced Coffee.

Izzi’s breakfast was by far the most beautiful – the original Smoked Salmon, Scrambled Eggs & Avocado on Sourdough Toast.

I tried out one of their ‘Lighter’ options, which was Smashed Avocado on Organic Pumpernickle Rye with Houmous, Poached Eggs, Chipotle and Chilli.

I went back and forth about ordering it without eggs (I’m trying to cut them out), but the student in me knew I’d be paying the same price without them so I just had them.

The houmous tasted a little tangy, but it was good overall – definitely a lighter option though. Girls gotta eat.

So happy this place is now involved in my last few months here! It might even make the cut on my ‘Best of Bath’ list when I graduate…

      I know, I know, I’m sorry Kerry! Doesn’t look like it will happen as I have Breakfast London going (and no eggs at breakfast is IMPOSSIBLE), but at least it’s a good thing I have meat and fish loving friends to eat with me!

    I keep finding myself here at the moment – Saturday’s at brunch time is just madness though! I hated how claustrophobic the ‘original’ BTP is but it was heaving when I went one Saturday a few weeks after the new place had opened!
    I’ve tried both the avocado & poached eggs on rye – classic blogger brunch – ; the smoked salmon on rye; but the best had to be the sourdough eggy bread with bacon (sorry!) and avocado. SO good.
    Definitely a fab new, convenient breakfast/brunch spot now though, I love the marble tables and general Californian vibe!

      I know! I walked in on Saturday and walked right about because it was so hectic!

      And oh my god I have to agree with you, I had the Sourdough Eggy Bread and Avocado the other day but asked for halloumi instead of bacon and it was still insanely good! Can imagine how delicious it is with bacon as well!
