First opened 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 a 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.
Really lovely, plenty of tea, sandwiches and cakes, the scones were scrummy and the staff couldn't do enough for us. Will definitely go again.
The sandwiches were dry around the edges. The chicken and sun dried tomato was too strong and salty. The scones were very good though, the best part. The cakes were pretty good too.
Excellent. Good service. Friendly staff.
Disappointing breakfast. Streaky bacon and over cooked eggs. However, service was good in Preston.
Easy to buy & use. No fuss.
Staff were amazing. All friendly and helpful. Great choice on menu. We will be going back. Thank you.
We had to sit downstairs so not the best environment. Tea was OK - girl serving us was lovely. Cakes not as nice as the ones sold from the window though.
Very nice. Sandwiches were delicious just wish there were a couple more. Service was good. Would recommend.
I had taken my wife and two sisters from Canada to Patisserie Valerie in Bromley on Tuesday 5th and were delighted with the lovely cream tea we had and the wonderful service we received from the staff.
We went in to London and arrived at one of your stores at 1 3o to be told sorry no more afternoon tea left. Asked where the nearest one was and was told five minutes walk away we arrived and I said as we arrived we had a voucher had to wait for table . Was seated explained we had a voucher to told she needed to ask her manager if there was want left. Another table had just been presented with one it was ok she said but we were diffenrly treated diffently from the other table. She explained what was presented to the other table and they were told if they needed anything more then just to ask. We had our put on the table and she just walked off . We were left like second class citizens. The other table paid cash not a voucher. We were left rather upset . The food was lovely but the experience was has last us rather disappointed especially after it being a special day.and a great.
