Incredible tasting freshly baked bread and pastries as well as a choice of sandwiches/tarts/desert options to take away. Love the sourdough.

Hi Kush, Firstly, thanks for the lovely remarks, and happy to see you have an eye for quality! Regarding your title, one of our main objectives is to make excellent food accessible to all our customers, and we price it accordingly. All food is handmade on site, traditionally, authentically and with painstakingly sourced ingredients. Yet we still offer large sourdough... More

Just looking at the cakes, quiches, savoury snacks on offer immediately command memories of France and the best its boulangeries has to offer. The range on offer is amazing. The bread is superb; the savoury food really tempts, and the cakes are truly scrumptious. You can order drinks and eat in store or take your goodies home to share with... More

Everything about this place is awesome. The setting and service are definitely a bonus as are the incredible range of bread. Coffee has to be the most delicious ever

It is so nice to be able to buy authentic French patisserie in Brighton. I am not really a fan of the bread or savoury offerings, which are nothing to write home about - but who cares with sweet things on offer! The service varies a bit shop to shop and it can take a long time to get served... More

Great, thanks for the compliments on the patisserie! It is a very busy shop, community is very important to us, we are glad for this and welcome the atmosphere it brings with it. But sorry to hear about your experience with queues, we staff as closely as we can to demand. The shop is always getting busier so it is... More

I can't express how much I adore the fine patisserie here, finely crafted flavours and beautifully & freshly created cakes are a feast for all the senses. Fantastic bread selection and the best croissants!

Favourites include the Rye Sourdough and the Chewy Brown (incredible when its hot out of the oven!). Would also love if they could make homemade bagels, that would be a sure hit. Only suggestion I have is to make some nut-free desserts. I have a nut allergy so cannot really try any of their desserts due to cross contamination in... More

JustinRealKT, Manager at Real Patisserie, responded to this review

It's something we have pained over but in the end it's safer to warn that products may contain traces. It's as much in production that cross contamination of nuts can occur. While we have no peanuts on site, some ingredients we use may contain traces, as warned by the suppliers. Almond is very present in the kitchen, though, we use... More

The day when I give up on my slim 'looks' I ll be a frequent visitor here. Fresh chewy brown with real butter and home made jam....and freshly brewed coffee slowly melting my winter blues away. Salmon quiche to take away and chocolate macaroons.

Their food is delicious - from their quiches to their bread, from their croissants to their pastries to their sandwiches. I live close by and often pop in to grab some lunch but the problem is, unless you get there early, the choice starts getting really limited. Went in at 12:50 and they had 3 sandwiches and a couple of... More

Hi, That's the upside and the downside of making food fresh for sale! We keep very detailed production/sell-out sheets so when this happens we can make more, as you say. 12.50 is exceptionally early, this must have been an unlucky day so apologise for this. Please keep coming, though, and feel free to bring it to my attention if you... More

Visited only once and purchased pain au chocolat which were some of the best I have tasted. Will return to sample further delicacies, in particular the almond and chocolate croissants, most of the gateaux, the bread and the quiche!
