Brief lunch with colleagues for my birthday. The cafe' was a bit empty for that time on a weekday (2-3 tables occupied) so we could pick a table; oddly on a winter day a window was open in the back of the bakery. Service was ok: 10-15 minutes to prepare an eggs&salmon plate and two grills (a savoury croissant and... More

Nice selection of mouthwatering cakes! Several of them will do for a meal on its own. We ate breakfast and had scrambled eggs and full english breakfast. Portion sizes were fine, and the price average. Apparently no native English speaking people work there.

We enjoyed the food. We were given a choice of three "soups of the day" and the minestrone was thick and tasty. The cakes were delicious. But the premises are small and the tables are very close together. We were two for lunch and the waitress was very insistent we didn't sit at a table for four. The kitchen is... More

I brought my Mum to experience afternoon tea after everywhere else in town had to be pre-booked. Patisserie Valerie offer reasonable priced afternoon tea, no booking necessary, which suits spontaneous types like me. This particular branch is conveniently located near Covent Garden and Seven Dials. It's not a big cafè, but turnover of tables was quite quick so we only... More

My friend suggested afternoon tea. I searched online and Patisserie Valerie was reasonably priced, £25 for 2 people. We chose Long Acre cos it's centrally located. I booked a Saturday 3pm slot and I was excited cos it was the first time I've had afternoon tea. The place wasn't busy and Sara the young waitress was really nice. We had... More

Great cakes and great coffee, a welcome break. Good service; efficient and friendly. Small table for four to be seated at though, was all a bit squashed but nevertheless we enjoyed our visit.
