Cafés in Bournemouth: things to know before you go

Not sure where’s best to go? Keen to understand the finer points of cream and afternoon tea? Here are all the most popular questions about cafés in Bournemouth, answered.

Which are the best cafes in Bournemouth?

There are some wonderful places in the town, and a good way to determine the best (other than try them all yourself, of course!) is to check out our customer reviews online to see what others have to say. But if you'd like to find a great beach café in Bournemouth, or one with the best internet connection when work calls, our list of favourites will give you a great place to start.

  • Afternoon tea with a view. Choose between chocolate or traditional afternoon tea at The Cottonwood Boutique Hotel, and enjoy panoramic views of the Isle of Wight and the Purbecks as you devour your cakes.
  • A touch of luxury. Treat yourself to an elegant afternoon tea at The Norfolk Royale Hotel, with traditional cucumber sandwiches and a glass of chilled champagne.
  • A swim before tea. Take to the pool and relax in the incredible spa facilities at The Royal Bath Hotel, before enjoying an indulgent afternoon tea with champagne and views across Bournemouth seafront and pier.

What cakes are served at afternoon tea?

You can look forward to plenty of different kinds of cake alongside the usual sandwiches and scones in a good afternoon tea. Here are just a few of the sugary treats offered by cafés in Bournemouth.

  • Edwardian style. For some fabulous cakes and a little bit of luxury, dip into lemon drizzle cake, chocolate brownie, lemon posset and more at The Langtry Manor.
  • French fancy. Choose afternoon tea at the Café Rouge and dive into decadent cake heaven with varieties of carrot, lemon drizzle, chocolate red velvet among many others.
  • Vegan delight. If you're looking for a good vegan café in Bournemouth, you’ll love the raspberry and coconut loaf, apple and sultana cake, and chocolate and caramel brownie on offer at Steam Vintage Tea Room.

What's the difference between cream tea and afternoon tea?

While afternoon tea is seen as an occasion in and of itself, a cream tea more closely describes the contents of a tasty snack. Afternoon tea started as an indulgent refreshment in the 1840s to fill the hunger gap between meals, and has developed today into a special treat to enjoy with friends and loved ones at grand hotels and cafes. Expect a display of finger sandwiches, delicious cakes, scones and pastries, with plenty of refreshing tea. A cream tea, by contrast, usually consists only of tea with warm scones, clotted cream and jam.

What's the right way to eat a cream tea?

Cream tea is one of the best food and drink combinations out there. The obvious way to eat it is with lots of jam and clotted cream, but there's actually a longstanding food dispute about which you add first. The Cornish way is to generously spread with jam and then a dollop of cream on top. If you use the Devonshire method, however, you would cover your scone with clotted cream and then add a spoonful of jam on top. Whichever your preference, it is generally agreed that the scones should be warm and served with plenty of tea.
