Had found this cafe online but when I got there the name of the establishment was different but anyway. As we walked in the pastries looked wonderful and extremely tempting.

Chipped cups, stained jugs, cracked teapot. Taking the retro theme a bit too far. Would much prefer that the crockery was clean and washed in a machine! The tea was so strong that the 2nd cup came out black. No hot water with the tea. Probably will still be popular with the trendy set but there are many better tea... More

Whether it's an unusually sunny day in Clapham and you're able to pretend you're in a Parisian cafe, or whether the standard London rain is pouring and you're snuggled up inside, Macaron is well worth a visit for a bit of French hospitality. Beautiful teas in mismatched china and with delicious cakes or sandwiches are the order of the day.... More

I stumbled across this place while on a London break and was delighted to find an authentic French patisserie. Helpful staff, amazing teas and great atmosphere will definitely be back!

Had tea and pastries (apple tart and chocolate & raspberry torte). Delicious. The staff were friendly and were happy to give us extra hot water for our tea - something that most places don't do. Great location, tasty food. Right next to Clapham Common and tube. Highly recommended.

Great variety of food for a quick and yummy lunch or a midday treat. Sit in the lovely, sun filled shop or take your food across the road to the fabulous park. The service here is great, the food, juices, smoothies all seemed very fresh. Nothing not to like.
