There are not many places around do such a good mille feulle. Tasteful, yet not over bearing, sizeable yet not to big. Good coffee and tea as well. Absolute recommendation.

My husband and I love to go for the breakfast on Sunday's. And needless to say, the coffee and pastries are divine.

We really enjoy our coffee, the coffee here is pretty good and the selection of patisserie, cakes and delicious treats is amazing. The cafe gets very busy and unfortunately the service does suffer.

We visited Patisserie Valerie today. On arrival it was busy and the atmosphere was pretty chaotic and shambolic. We were eventually seated but then had to wait at least 10 minutes for someone to take our order: two apple juices, a croissant and an eclair....More
