On this, my third visit, I felt I had a decent enough grasp to be able to give a fair review. If you are after a coffee and a slice of cake, a pastry or a macaroon then Patisserie Valerie is one of the best places in Canterbury.

Wow. My partner and I have just had the best afternoon tea ever. We turned up on a busy Sunday afternoon, they quickly found us a table and made us feel like we were the only customers there. We ordered an afternoon tea for two, the sandwiches were fresh, the scones were warm and the cakes were delicious. With great... More

I bought a voucher from Debenhams for my mums birthday which we used today. Very friendly staff. The afternoon tea was lovely, more than enough for two people. Would recommend it to anyone

Lovely place for breakfast, lunch or just a treat. Quick service and friendly staff, my order was taken without much of a wait and food arrived promptly. Very clean and inviting, the food is always good. Well worth a visit.
