“Fantastic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2013

Amazing choice of bread - recommend the spelt loaf. Truly wonderful cakes and the best coffee in Shoreham. A great bonus is being able to order desserts for dinner parties eg apple or apricot tarts. The French owners are charming, very friendly and welcoming.

“Real Patisserie, real delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2013

This is a genuine French patisserie run by French husband and wife team David and Helen with a hossmall number of friendly staff including Kelly and Pia who add to the ambience. Right on the corner of Shoreham's East Street pedestrianised cafe quarter Real Patisserie's range of patisserie, savories and French breads is excellent and the coffee is delicious. A great place for a cake and coffee break from the town centre shopping, street markets, car boot sales or sight-seeing of Shoreham's historic buildings - or even when the new Footbridge to the beach opens on the way to or from soaking up the sun on Shoreham beach.

“French Patisserie en Angleterre!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

Great coffee, imaginative tarts and cakes - just as you would get in France but here in England. This is a chain of patisseries we discovered on a shopping trip to Shoreham-by-Sea some weeks ago. We now pop back regularly to treat ourselves (takeaway and eat-in) to some delicious and naughty offerings! The staff are really friendly (and one of them is French, I think the owner?) and helpful. A lovely change from the standard coffee shop!

“Makes you feel like in France”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013

Love this place ! Real Patisserie in Shoreham-by-Sea is absolutely adorable and great for lazy weekend mornings or for a quick pit stop on your way home. I like to come here on Saturday mornings to grab a coffee and a croissant, or a delicious Fondant au Chocolat. They also serve great pastries, quiches, and fresh sandwiches.The service is very friendly and the Coffee is great, but what I like the most about this place is the Atmosphere...Makes you feel like in France :).
