Food lovely and staff real friendly. One of the best Patisseries in London. Good quality food for a good price.

Waiters have no clue about customer service. They are just bunch of people running around for no reason. Forgetting the order and even the fact that the customer is waiting for something they have asked twice. Really poor service. 15 mins for one glass of tap water, thats pathetic. Worst visit I could have ever imagined. Never again.

Waited 20 minutes, got no menus (had to get up to get them), did not get served, dirty cups were not removed from the table. The place did not seem too crowded. It's a shame, as the quality of the desserts is good but the service is just too poor.

My husband and I decided on this cafe as the desserts looked amazing. The desserts were fantastic! Very generous portions and good value for money. Service was good so it was a shame about the setting itself, which was a little shabby. Would definitely recommend for anyone with a sweet tooth.

We were browsing at the several bookshops along the road and were attracted by the coffee aroma. We were politely greeted as we walked in and were promptly seated. The serving staff were smartly attired and pleasant. The Earl Grey tea was great as whole tea leaves were used instead of tea bags. The double chocolate gateau and strawberry gateau... More

Wow - wanted a little stop prior to visit to theatre land came across this place, staff were great, friendly and helpful. The cakes, pastries all looked amazing, good variety. All day breakfast was superb and very reasonable cost. Definitely worth another visit.

After lots of walking we wanted somewhere to stop for a quick drink and to rest our feet. We stopped at this patisserie as the cakes looked fantastic in the window. Customer service was rubbish. Waiting for a long time to be served, we eventually went to the counter to order only to be told to sit back down and... More

Great food and coffee pleasantly served by well dressed, friendly, helpful staff, nice crockery and cutlery rather than finger eating. Lots of choice in both hot an cold foods from a snack to a meal, some interesting slightly different things which make a change from most quick style food outlets. Free wifi which was easy to use. Cakes are fabulous.... More

Not the most soothing of environments, but considering the station it's in, it is remarkably unbusy. The cakes and savories are wonderful, as is the coffee!
