From Our Editors

First opened in Soho in 1926, Patisserie Valerie follows artisan baking traditions brought to London by Belgian-born Madam Valerie whose mission was to introduce continental patisserie to the English. Now boasting over 120 multiple venues nationwide, the company adorns its cafes with a 1950s-inspired decor, and serves up an array of freshly-made cakes, craft patisseries, breakfasts, lunches, coffees and loose-leaf teas. Their specialties include meticulously crafted croissants and viennoiseries, as well as homemade Italian-style gelato.

It was lovely in there, the only downside were the sandwiches were a bit dry, like they had been sitting on the side for a while.... and some of them were cut so tiny it wasn't worth putting on the plate.

Noisy & mediocre experience. Large group next to us. So close it difficult to get out to visit the Ladies. Not even a table cloth or proper napkin in sight. Felt like we were in a transport cafe. Sandwiches ok but bread a little dry. Cakes not that appertising & far too sweet. Enjoyed the carrot cake & scones best. Bought as a treat for a friend. Wished I'd paid more and gone somewhere more special. Staff were very friendly I have to add. Poor choice on my part - 'get what you pay for'.

We waited about forty minutes for our cream tea but I think that was mainly due to a new member of staff who didn't really know what they were doing. Once the food came up and a new waitress served us I couldn't fault it .
