Londons Best Patisserie Shop - London
Patisserie Valerie: Londons Best Patisserie Shop

A must place to go if you
like incredible pastry ....
They also have a little lunch
area inside.

It is always a stop for us to enjoy some pastry

Favorite Dish: ~ Original Location ~
44 Old Compton Street, W1D

A Soho institution this wonderful cafe serves
some of the best pastries in the city and a
tempting array of cakes, coffees and other
yummy things.

There are Valeries all over London these
days but this is the original and while the
standard is consistently high throughout
the chain, there's something about the
formica tables, 1950s decor and
Toulouse-Latrec cartoons in the downstairs
dining area that raises it above the rest.
