It was just an afternoon coffee with family. We arrived there and one of the girls from the stuff asked if we would sit or take-away, with a very polite and friendly attitude, and we told her we would sit. We order our coffee( filtered, filtered decaf and a cappuccino), which was quite tasteful and we order a strawberry cake... More

Wow. My partner and I have just had the best afternoon tea ever. We turned up on a busy Sunday afternoon, they quickly found us a table and made us feel like we were the only customers there. We ordered an afternoon tea for two, the sandwiches were fresh, the scones were warm and the cakes were delicious. With great... More

I bought a voucher from Debenhams for my mums birthday which we used today. Very friendly staff. The afternoon tea was lovely, more than enough for two people. Would recommend it to anyone

Lovely place for breakfast, lunch or just a treat. Quick service and friendly staff, my order was taken without much of a wait and food arrived promptly. Very clean and inviting, the food is always good. Well worth a visit.

As a French person I wanted to try this pâtisserie. Unfortunately, I was rather disappointed with the quality of the pastries: the Eclair au Chocolat was dry (and there wasn't any chocolate crème pâtissière in it, but whipped cream), the Apple Almond Tart was quite tasty, but the crust was not crusty enough. Moreover, many gâteau slices don't look French,... More

I often come to Canterbury, and I always come to Patisserie Valerie during my stays. This time I came for abreakfast, but I had even lunch lots of times! The staff is really lovely and polite. The place is clean and neat, the food is good and typical. I surely reccommend this place to those who need a relaxing break.

A really big choice of heavenly cakes and pastries beautifully presented. The coffee was good and the service friendly and efficient. The atmosphere was great, grown up and relaxed.

Sometimes this place can be very good, sometimes it's not great at all. Our last experience was for afternoon tea and it was okay. The food was average, there was no asking if we had issues for the sandwiches (meat-free or egg free, etc.), the scones tasted mass produced. The service is reasonable but for how small the place is... More

We first came and queued up for a few minutes when the waiter came and served first the couple that came after us, offering them the best table next to the window, while we were given the one at the corridor. The service was very slow to bring us the bill (we had to stand up and put our coats... More
