We have been visiting the Boston tea party in Honiton since it first opened, and our visit has always been enjoyable. But today was a different experience. The cakes on open display do not offer a hygienic situation as staff lean over the display to serve customers. If you are suffering from a nut allergy and fancy a slice of... More

A great atmosphere. Super food. Lots of choice. Welcoming staff. A real treat as a stop over on a journey. My husband and I both chose the scones. I had the savoury which was cheese and herb and he had the fruit scone with jam and cream. Scones are a lunchtime favourite for us and it would hard to find... More

This restaurant is not the run of the mill eating house, it has some unusual menu's which make eating out during the day a pleasant surprise. During the summer it has a nice garden for families to eat in.

This could have been a 5 star review in light of the menu but I was really disappointed on my visit to see that many yummy looking cakes, scones and pastries were displayed on the counter at chest/face height, directly in front of customers queuing and placing orders. There was a large covered display cabinet but only half full containing... More

We breakfasted there probably at least every week Staff great -- lots of good breakfast options Gets very popular but deserves to be , Good atmospheres and service, Very annoying they keep changing the wi-fi , So conflicts with the loyalty card and cell phone recognition? Also disappointed that they have withdrawn the Kedigeree -- my regular breakfast treat ?... More

Although a smallish franchise (which may put some people off), the Boston serves excellent coffee and good food. Not only does it have sandwiches and cakes, it has a good range of hot food too. The staff are pleasant and attentive and when the weather is suitable, there is a great garden out the back. If you're looking for somewhere... More

My croque madame was meant to be a toasted sandwich with sauce and poached egg on top. The bread wasn't toasted, the ham inside was gristle and fatty, the garden preached egg on top hadn't been drained enough making my bread soggy. Vile food My friend ordered toast which came like warm and the butter was so hard straight from... More

We were visiting friends and walked to the high street to look around, stopped here for coffee, it is a friendly café with attentive staff, does get busy and service can be slow so it pays to have plenty of time.

Hi Pauline. Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review. We do appreciate the feedback. I am working closely with the team to tighten up the service received on the busier days. Warm regards, Becky More

Dropped in by chance. Tempted by lots of things on the unusual menu. The coffee was good and the cakes and biscuits we tried were exceptional. Queuing system a bit drawn out but it's a big old place so lots of covers. Would definitely return.

Thanks for leaving us a review. I'm happy to hear you enjoyed the amazing cakes and coffee. We are always looking for ways to ensure the ordering system is a little smoother and will continue to work on this. I hope to see you again soon. Thanks Becky More

Boston Tea Party is a small family owned independent café 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. We like to think of BTP Honiton as our elegant English tearoom with the added buzz of an urban café – very much in keeping with the town itself & the lovely locals.
