It's a pleasant place if you're looking for delicious cakes, breads and pastries away from the hustle and bustle surrounding Piccadilly Circus. There's a nice selection to suit all taste buds. Personally, I think their coffee is over-priced as I didn't find anything particularly special about it but I was happy with my experience overall and the service by its friendly and helpful staff staff contributed to it. I'd definitely recommend their Cinnamon Social Slice - it's truly amazing!

First time we have been here and it was good.
We ordered raspberry tart and flat white coffee’s. The raspberry tart was so good, the raspberries were bursting with flavour. The flat white coffee’s were tasty but would have preferred them hotter.
When you come into the restaurant you have to pick up a ticket to place your order, needs to be highlighted/explained better.
Service was excellent and staff friendly.
The restaurant has seating outside, inside, upstairs and downstairs. The bakery is located downstairs.
Toilets were nice and clean when we visited.

Served by Emma who helpfully pointed out various options for our dietary requirements and ones to avoid as well! Great service in a great place.

I always get pulled into Ole & Steen when I walk past and see the window display, and this time was no exception. I have a bad habit of going for my favourites rather than trying something new, even though everything on offer looks delicious. This was no exception this time; I love their carrot buns and came away with another, but I also decided to try a kloben bun for a bit of variety. Both were excellent; fluffy bread, well-flavoured and delicious! The kloben bun was a nice change, and had a sweetness that paired with the fragrant cardamom flavour. The carrot, as always, was excellent and I always love the flavour and texture of the bread. I'd highly recommend both! The service, as always, was excellent and their ticketing system makes service very efficient during busy times.

Hi GuruLark,

Who could possibly resist all our mouthwatering pastries sitting in the window? Definitely not us!

We're happy to hear you stuck by your old favourite but also tried something new! You made great choices. Our kløben bun is soft, sweet, and just a tad bit spicy...it's perfect with a cup of coffee!

Hope you stop back in again soon :)
