Boston Tea Party is a brunch staple in Birmingham. Post holiday and too jet lagged to consider feeding ourselves, Dave and I pitched up at the Harborne branch for some brunch.
The sun was shining, so we found a table in the Courtyard, and ordered some cold drinks. My Watermelon Lemonade came from the summer specials list and was refreshing and fruity, with lots of sharp lemon flavours. Dave chose a Marathon Milkshake (£3.95) which combines chocolate, caramel syrup, peanut butter and milk.
I can never resist a classic brunch order and chose Smoked Salmon, Scrambled Eggs and Avocado on Sourdough Toast (£8.15). The portion is generous, and filling, with fluffy eggs, flavourful salmon and a creamy avocado. It was delicious and I devoured the lot.
Dave ordered The Cuban Sandwich (£8.25). A toasted sub roll is filled with slow roast pork, ham, Emmental cheese, Dijon mustard, gherkins and mayo, and then served with slaw. The sandwich was jam packed with filling, but without the roll reaching the ludicrous proportions we saw Cubans being served in while we were in the States. Dave made short work of it, and was very happy with his choice.
The Courtyard is a lovely spot to sit in the sun and enjoy a meal, and we left with full bellies and relaxed minds.
We paid in full ourselves. All opinions are honest and my own. They didn’t know I was a blogger. All prices correct at the time of writing.
