Boston Tea Party is a small family owned independent cafe group serving simple well-prepared food & drinks made with great ingredients, skill and love. Ethically sourced, affordable, feel-good & excellent quality - made from scratch onsite everyday by people who care about what they do. BTP Park Street was our first & flagship cafe. Opened in 1995, it has become a local institution & urban retreat with a hidden tiered garden. It is a firm favourite with Bristolians & an actual legend in its own lunchtime!

I'm a local have regularly popped to Boston for a coffee. It's a lovely café inside with great service. However, today I treated myself to brunch and it was shockingly bad! The item I ordered included bacon which I asked for as 'crispy and well done' the whole thing was thrown together in a few seconds and the bacon was... More

The menu is thoughtful and interesting, whether breakfast, brunch or lunch. Coffee is as reliable as it should be in a coffee house that is a really comfortable place to stop for refreshment or meet friends. This is my number one coffee/cafe joint, and not just because it's on my commuter route. What really sets BTP above the rest is... More

Really good food. All day breakfasts are huge and excellent. It seems like each item was lovingly prepared and individually flavoured. Delicious pancakes too. We split a The Boss breakfast and a plate of pancakes with maple syrup between us. Heavenly. Next day we went back and tried the burgers. Again really good. The place is spacious and relaxed.

My first visit to this branch was disappointing. I have visited other branches of BTP in Devon. The smell of cooking oil is overwhelming.

My wife needed a pick-me-up and a scone after some retail therapy which Boston Tea Party certainly provided. I was very surprised they served some lovely real ales which I duly had and we spent a very pleasant half hour people watching from the front window enjoying our fine fare.

Fantastic review, Thank you. our 'Wiper and True' real ale range is a relatively new addition to our locally scoured menu and it is brilliant to have some feedback on this. so glad we could help with a little pick-me-up and that you enjoyed your cream tea. hope to see you again soon all the best The Team at BTP...
