Named after the eponymous 1920s Hollywood starlet, Betty Blythe was founded in 2008 by owner Lulu Gwynne. An aficionado of all things vintage and glamorous, Lulu’s plan was to provide the genteel community of Brook Green with an old fashioned shopping experience and a reason to make time for tea and cake.
Spaced over two floors, Betty Blythe’s boudoir chic décor perfectly complements the beautifully made cakes and colourful treats on display. Upstairs the shop is light and airy, yet packed full of goodies – its oak tables piled high with fresh pastries and huge mirrors reflecting cut flowers and beautiful painted window displays. Downstairs, in Betty Blythe’s charming tea room, white French-style furniture and exposed brickwork sits alongside the vintage gowns and flowered china, and wine cellar style alcoves add a ‘secret garden’ feel
to the room.
Complementing its sweet treats, tea and home-made cakes, Betty Blythe’s freshly made sandwiches, savoury dishes and delicious salads make it a perfect lunch time spot. Offering carefully chosen specialist foodstuff, Betty Blythe’s sells a fantastic selection of rare artisan cheeses, handmade chocolates and breads. Examples of the products at Betty Blythe include, Boroughs Baby Food, fresh breads and pastries from Gail’s Bakery and fresh meats from Somerset, Gilcombe Farm.
