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.
Everything was served beautifully within a short amount of time.
Only issue hence the 4 star was due to confusion of payment. The cashier got a bit annoyed as she said we should of mentioned it was a groupon offer as soon as we sat down, as she already put our order through the till without asking or clarifying which I thought was a bit unfair as we did not know to mention it at the very start.

Excellent value for money & extra drinks were given I definitely recommend
Amazing service! Definitely worth it
Service very bad. Waited for quite a while for order to be taken. A few peopleleft without waiting for their orders. Unfriendly staff and appear quite rube too. It wasn't the first time I experienced this unpleasant experience at the same place.
Limited Menu. Some are very rude.
Nice few cakes, bit limit amount, their hot chocolate was gross, I complain, they just dump more coco, it was a mess and not mixed up correctly, with cream missing too...the secound one was even worse ,so we didn't drink it. The scones was only good thing about it. That's is why I have a three
Always no bother using viucher
We were allowed as much time as needed and drinks refills - relaxing afternoon.
Nice little afternoon tea, service was great and the tea is unlimited! There was more than enough food to fill us up.
Excellent service. Went for afternoon tea and being vegetarian I wasn't too sure about the sandwich options! The waitress was so friendly and sorted out the afternoon tea to our requirements and went out of her way to make it a lovely experience for us! Would go again for sure
