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.
Afternoon tea was lovely. We were served with our drinks choices as soon as we sat down but then had to wait 35 minutes for our food. Far too long! With no explanation until we asked why when we were then told they were a chef down.
Lovely hot breakfast. A feast! Pot of tea which gave us 3 cups each.
Good service and cosy environment .
Sutton Coldfield branch terrible service, dirty tables, dirty crockery left on tables there when we got there and still there when we left, struggled to find a clean and clear table to sit at. Sandwiches and cakes were stale and lacked any flavour, waiter was rude, abrupt, and lacked the knowledge needed for his job, very disappointing.
Very friendly staff & great service, food was excellent, definitely recommend & would go again
Lovely food and oh so naughty cakes....don't ever close down-PLEASE!
Food overcooked but service good
Super afternoon tea, one of the best. Good service & friendly attentive staff.
