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.
We redeemed the Groupon on a busy Bank Holiday Monday. We were seated straightaway and had an attentive waiter. Very good value for the money, would definitely visit again.
We have enjoyed several 'Afternoon Teas', admittedly through Groupon, we love them.
I feel highly disappointed in the offer we had. It’s not the same as before, you don’t get cake to take home like before, and we weren’t offered any other drink!
I was so disappointed with my experience , the reason I brought this groupon is because I saw a picture of the full English breakfast which loooked good and my partner loves eggs Benedict. When we went to the Norwich patisserie Valarie, we were told it’s the only restaurant in the country that dosent do bacon or ham! So they didn’t do a full English or eggs Benedict! What a disaster!! I had to settle for scrambled eggs on toast with salmon (which didn’t smell fresh) my partner ordered poached eggs with spinach and hollindase sauce which when came out was over cooked to a boiled egg- we sent it back and was told ‘o do you like them a little runnier’ well obviously poached eggs aren’t boiled eggs! When the second attempt came out, it was undercooked so my partner just picked at little bits and waisted most of- it was embarrassing to be honest and I feel I waisted my money.
Extremely helpful, easy transaction. happy to help.
Lovely afternoon tea. Pleasant surroundings. Waitress was excellent.
