Bea Tollman's Cheesecake


Our decadent cheesecake, created from our President & Founder Beatrice Tollman’s signature recipe that has been perfected over the years, is among the very best in London. Rich, smooth, delicious and a real labour of love, we are proud to serve Bea’s cheesecake at The Rubens at the Palace. This July, enjoy a slice of cheesecake for £9 and receive a complimentary coffee of your choice. 

To accompany our famous cheesecake, our head bartender Silviu has created the “Don Juancho” cocktail, named after the Venezuelan aristocrat who was the inspiration behind Diplomático rum. Combining  Diplomático Rum, citrus, vanilla, limoncello, chardonnay wine, passion fruit and almond foam, the subtle and elegant flavours pair beautifully with the cheesecake. Savour a slice with the cocktail for £15. 

Tag us on Instagram using the hashtag #BeasCheesecake with a picture of your cheesecake, for a chance to win two complimentary coffees every day for a year.
