Betty Blythe.. a dress up brunch

I bet you’ve never heard of a dress up brunch – Betty Blythe is an unashamedly feminine set of tea rooms with 1920’s dress up boxes set in the quiet of suburban Olympia.

We’re here today for Brunch – and we have the place to ourselves.  All the better for getting stuck into the delights of the treasure chests.

There are hats, necklaces, gloves, wraps, shawls, all crying out to be draped all over you and engaged in much silliness.

Next up, granola with yoghurt, honey & berries.  Nothing makes you feel more virtuous than granola for breakfast.

We should have definitely paid a lot more attention to the menu, but  the description of our brunch happened while we were distracted by hats, so we were entirely unprepared for still more food – this time in the form of the most delicious breads.  Walnut & what I think might be sourdough with butter and jam to finish off.

We were offered fruit to finish but there’s no way we could fit anything else in.  A very healthy and delicious start to the day – with the added fun of dressing up!

I will definitely be back – they offer to arrange afternoon tea for groups and really, that is just crying out to get a few girlfriends together and play vintage dress up again very soon.
