Stunning display of sweets and cakes which are so temptingly presented they are almost impossible to refuse, had a selection with coffee in the lobby on the recommendation of the young polite member of staff. I had a small slice of an Orange muffin type of cake with a small gateau which were just divine. Well worth a visit to... More

He's not won the award of world pastry champion for nothing! Superb deserts to eat in or takeaway and not at ridiculous prices. Macaroons are highly recommended. Polite, friendly shop assistant that spoke excellent English. Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area, and it's just off the main shopping street, so not even out of the way.

We happened to walk by a sign that said 'world pastry champion' so just had to go back to try it out - and we were delighted. We had a champagne tea with some of the best cakes I've ever had. We sat out on the street (I didn't even realise it had indoor seating) but the roadside location was... More

Not the classical "for tourist" confectioner's, but a real outstanding "salon de gourmandises". Macarons are excellent, but even the marshmallow are ennobled here!
