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.
We were greeted on arrival at the Cambridge branch by a lovely, friendly girl. We were shown to a table and left to peruse the menu. We had a 2-4-1 offer for all day brunch and a hot drink. The waitress showed us what we could choose which was pretty much anything from the menu. We had the cooked breakfast which was cooked to perfection. From start to finish we had a great time. We will definitely be back.
Nice selection of treats and lovely staff
need updating very drab
Staff were very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. We stayed longer and had cake as well.
We went for brunch. The food was excellent, very tasty and well presented. The staff are very professional, helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend it
Nice tea in tired setting. Venue a let down
Very enjoyable afternoon, perhaps if I was with my husband, a couple more finger sandwiches and one less cake would be better, otherwise very good.
Nothing was too much trouble and suggested we choose our included cake slices before our tea as they were running low!
Despite it being a manic Saturday during the build up to Christmas the Cambridge centre restaurant had our booking and our table was ready. The food was fresh and delicious, the staff exemplary and having a piece of gateau to take home extended the pleasure. Highly recommend.
