A quick treat before heading off to the theatre, chocolate cake to die for and a gorgeous pot of tea. Service from the staff left a little to be desired - a smile and a thank you would have been nice.

I was extremely disappointed with the service from staff. Made to feel very uncomfortable. Not very friendly. Cakes and food ridiculously overpriced. Don't be overwhelmed by the fancy cakes in the window they are just average and very overpriced.

we took the teens for cake and a drink just after lunch. Unfortunately some of the cakes we chose had run out and the choice was much more limited that I would expect from Valerie patisserie. That said, those cakes we ate were nice and...More

We saw a queue at this eating place on our way to Covent Garden Market and decided to try the afternoon. The place is casual. We ordered two afternoon sets for 4 of us. There was variety of pastries in the afternoon set and they...More
