Ordered black forest gateau. The barest hint of cherries in it. Cream not great either. Coffee and service were fine. Won't be back.

Very cosy and friendly. We arrived in the early evening and were there quite a long time; the staff were very friendly and did not mind. The pastries were to die for and I had the best pecan tart ever!

At Patisserie Valerie. Lovely cappucino with a big smiley on it made of choclate. 4 days London and 3 breakfasts in the patisserie is all there is to say... We had veggie breakfast, English Breakfasts, tasty scones, mozzarella sandwich. And here in SOHO very very kind waiter (unfortunately going back to Switzerland)

First visit to the original Patisserie Valerie for about 30 years, décor much the same, coffee fine, service OK but a bit impersonal

We walked into this establishment at 10.15am wanting a drink and a small bite to eat for breakfast, from the moment we walked in I felt like an inconvenience, the man behind the counter (I think he was the manager) completely ignored us to the point where I had to check if they were open. Once we were seated we... More
