We use PV a lot and wherever we can, but I must say; recently the rudeness of staff has become worse than ever. There seems to be a trend of treating customers like cattle and Piccadilly was no exception today.

We stopped here for a morning break on a hot summer day. Probably the best cup of coffee we had in London. We like it strong, and strong it was, and served in a large cup. Service was excellent, price was very reasonable. Highly recommended.

Ideally located in Picadilly Street near our hotel, Parisserie Valerie is excellent for Breakfast, Coffee, and Dessert. They also serve lunch and dinners.

Went for afternoon tea for two as a friend had given us a voucher. I've had several afternoon teas over the years and this ranks as the worst so far. If you like your afternoon tea on a Formica table with hardly a hair's breadth...More

St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII,
the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier
destination for high end craft and bespoke design.
Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which
indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the
establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during
a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s
Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing

I only reviewed the café. I have no idea about reservations. I am pretty sure that you would be able to have a nice afternoon tea there.
