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.
I usually go for a coffee & cake with my husband & enjoy the experience.
I have also had afternoon tea twice & find it also delicious & well presented.
Great service, great food and friendly staff
Lovely afternoon tea for my birthday - great value for money very filling.
Been on a number of occasions and the standard is always the same, great.
We booked the afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie for a Mother's Day present - we couldn't have asked for better. The staff were super friendly, the sandwiches and cakes were delicious and complimentary, refillable hot drinks were an amazing added bonus. We would definitely come back, even if just for a (larger) piece of cake and coffee!
Given as a Christmas gift. My daughter and son in law enjoyed it very much.
Food was pretty good but service wasn't, the food was brought to our table by a dark haired girl who plonked the Afternoon Tea down which was left balancing on my tea cup saucer and walked away didn't even have the manners to say enjoy she said absolutely nothing, infact the whole time we were there nobody came over to us to check all was ok.
It was a birthday treat but don't think we will be rushing back.
I've been a few times and the standard is always good.
Afternoon tea was great including some amazing mince pies to take away. Would have given 5 stars if I didn't have to ask for the tables to be cleaned. Stiii had crumbs from the last diners!
