“Rather overpriced but nice”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

There are other good places for cakes in Portsmouth, but Valerie cakes are quite well presented. A slice of cake and a cuppa set you back £7 which I think it rather too much.

“Gunwharf quays - very good!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

First time at this outlet centre and had been shopping for over 5 hours and then came across PV! I know its small and compact [compared to the London ones] but the quality is the same and the cakes as usual are priceless - the mille feuille was just fabulous, [ok it was a bit too much for one person but hey ho!].
I have read others remark on how small and compact this little cafe is and maybe PV will take note of this and get the management to make an extension of the building.

“Nice place but avoid like the plague during rush hours”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

The food at Patisserie Valerie as a chain tends to be pretty consistent, the cakes are lovely and the staff friendly enough even if the coffee leaves a bit to be desired. If you plan to visit during the quieter times then you will be in for a pleasant experience. However due to the very 'cosy' setup of the cafe (which cant be helped looking at the actual building itself) it can feel very claustrophobic when busy.
