My friend and visited in July to celebrate our birthdays. The cakes, sandwiches, tea and free flowing Prosecco were all fabulous. The service was lovely too. Would definitely recommend this.

We arrived quite late in the day so there wasn't much choice of cake left. However, what we did choose was delicious. The staff were pleasant. The only things that would make the experience better is if it was table service rather than going up...to the counter. We will definitely return, and also try the afternoon tea bus at some point.More

We had an excellent afternoon tea served by very helpful staff. Four ladies enjoyed our first post Covid easing of restrictions. One of our group had a birthday and was given a cake with a candle which delighted her. We will be going back.

It is some years since we had afternoon tea here abs it was just as nice . The choice of sandwiches were perfect for us and the cakes were wonderful. Due to covid the tables were well spaced out and this was an advantage to...us as it was not crammed at all but I expect not an advantage to the cafe . The individual cakes looked wonderful and we may return before we go home for a coffee and cake .More

Really very interesting - once you get over the exuberance of pink - this is a really rather fascinating place. Frequented mainly by Ladies on a day out - I am guessing - by the shopping bags and the lack of men - apart from...me. But don't be put off, this is an experience of a place. Just look at the clientele. Amazing and beautiful French cakes matched to scones and clotted cream with a nice champagne to wash it all down (tea is also available). Child friendly without being child centric with a full sized dolls house, and toy wooden buses to play with but still a very refined experience for adults. The cakes are to die for and the champagne/tea is very nice. A nice relaxed sit down just of Bedford street and staggering distance from Covent garden. Only draw back - slightly expensive. And the staff put up with my terrible French and pretended not to notice.More

I booked an afternoon for me and my mum for Christmas and was finally able to go yesterday and I was not disappointed in any way. I believe the lady who served us was called Ella she was fantastic. The food is absolutely amazing and...worth the money. I will be coming back again. Such a lovely day out. I would recommend Brigits bakery to anyone looking for an afternoon tea. Deserves more than 5 stars xMore

I've always wanted to do the bus tour Brigits do around London but just as I was about to the pandemic struck. The day lockdown was lifted 5 of us went to the Bakery for Afternoon tea for my friends 50th. Covid rules of masks...for staff were aheard to and we generally felt amazing in there. It's bright spacious clean and very boutique feeling. The staff were brilliant very tentative and looked after us the whole time asking if we needed anything else making sure everything was OK and changing the sandwiches to suit our vegetarian friend. The food was to die for I've never tasted nicer. The rolls were warm and fresh all different. The cakes were just as impressive and absolutely gorgeous. The scones at the end were warm and fresh also. We had a glass of freshly squeezed orange juice as we sat followed by prosecco and then unlimited, teas ,coffees, latte and hot chocolate. Nothing was too much for the staff. I will be revisiting for definite and also booking the bus tour this year for sureMore

The afternoon tea is a whole set and you pay the set price. But if you're not up to eating so much you can just order tea with a piece of cake or pastry. They don't just do afternoon teas exclusively, it's also a normal cafe.

£35 - went on a weekday, not sure if that makes a difference rather than going over a weekend? Food delicious, not rushed! A lovely experience, well worth the money.
