We were using a Groupon voucher for afternoon tea, and chose this venue because it was conveniently located in relation to a theatre we were attending that night. The food was quite good (we had high expectations because of all the goodies that PV display in their windows) except for the scones - which were VERY dry. The problem was... More

Patisserie Valerie is a series of pastries shoppe across London that offers a number of gluten free options for those of us with gluten sensitivities. The location on Charing Cross Road is a small corner shop that required a wait for a table but the delicious dessert and the warming cup of tea was worth the wait.

To die for. I didn't have any cake or tortes off the display, but they looked divine. Good luck making a choice through, I for one wouldn't be able to choose just one. The place was super busy on a Saturday night, but you couldn't tell by the wait staff, they were friendly and calm, joking with the customers, making... More

I tend to drink my fluids on the cool side but even this flat white was cold by my standards. I would have sent it back but we were due to go to the theatre. Walked in the toilet and then out again. Urine in the pan, on the seat, on the floor and 3 empty toilet rolls so it... More

We stopped by for a late breakfast/early lunch: Eggs Benedict Royale were delicious, sauce hollandaise is very velvety and not vinegary, and a generous portion of smoked salmon. Eclairs with loose leaf tea were a good addition, definitely will visit again!

Went there on a Sunday afternoon. Waited in the queue for about 5 minutes before being seated. Ordered a £4.45 chocolate brownie with ice cream and chocolate sauce (hot dessert). The brownie was alright, but the ice cream was a disappointment - could not find the vanilla there and texture was more like sorbet. Cold pastries were generally around or... More

The "Afternoon Tea" experience in London is as varied in options, atmosphere and prices as tea options themselves. The choices can go from a very "hip", busy Patisserie to a "posh" and elegant hotel and everything in-between with some priced for two but most per person and can range from 19 GBP per person to well over 50 GBP per...
