Surrounded by books and fragrant with tea, the London Review Cake Shop is the modern answer to London’s long-lost literary coffee-houses. We're located just round the corner from the British Museum, in an area rich with cultural history. Accessed through the London Review Bookshop via a corridor in the history section, the Cake Shop offers a haven for reading and reflection.

Come to our café in Bloomsbury to experience:

  • A wide range of high quality loose-leaf teas
  • Monmouth coffee made by trained baristas
  • A vibrant menu of seasonally inspired ingredients and big, punchy flavours
  • A constantly-changing selection of delicious cakes and pastries

Visit the London Review Cake Shop at 14 Bury Place, London WC1A 2JL. You can get in touch with us on 020 7269 9045

Tea, cake and lunch

You can expect to find eye-catching toppings on artisanal breads, inventive soups, buttery quiches and bright, colourful salads. We have teas to suit every taste, from fresh green teas, and floral, complex oolongs, to more powerful black teas and soothing herbal infusions.

Each infusion is served in the manner that most complements its flavour, either in a traditional Chinese Gong Fu-style teaset or in white china. The glass Gong Fu teapots allow the drinker to watch as the tea-leaves unfurl, providing a unique and relaxing tea-drinking experience. The white china retains heat for longer, resulting in a more powerful brew.
