First established in Soho in 1926, Patisserie Valerie follows artisanal baking traditions brought to London by Belgian-born Madam Valerie, whose mission was to introduce continental patisserie to the English. Now boasting over 120 venues nationwide, the company adorns its cafes with the 1950s-inspired decor and serves up an array of freshly-made cakes, craft pastries, breakfasts, lunches, coffees and loose-leaf teas. Their specialities include meticulously-crafted croissants and viennoiseries, as well as homemade Italian-style gelato.
Not very substantial. 3 very small cakes each and 3 very skinny finger sandwiches. 2 scones each. Not worth the money even with the discount.
Waste of time booking! Nothing was in stock and this has happened twice.
The cake and scones where lovely nice and hot when they came too!! But service was slow!! could improve if they can serve a bit quicker.
Exceptional service, friendly staff, couldn’t ask for more. Afternoon tea experience was amazing.
Disputes paying for a Sparkling afternoon tea I was told that they do not stock alcohol so only tea was an option.
Also the fantastic looking cakes you see in the windows are not the ones included in the afternoon tea
Staff was very rude, left us waiting for 20 minutes and made the tea in very old and stained pot.
The cakes were dry an very tiny. It was a shame as I was looking forward to it, waste of money.
Lovely afternoon tea with the girls
Had a lovely experience. Staff were friendly. Sandwiches were really nice. We went to the marlybone branch. The scones were fresh and tasted wonderful.. was not too hot on the cake selection though. It could have been better.
