Ordered an espresso and a brownie to. The brownie tasted great and the espresso was ok. The only downside was that the espresso was extremely hot. Also, the premises felt somewhat crammed - the staff had barely half a meter behind the counter. Affected the efficiency somewhat...

The coffee is really good - and the service was good too. But the pastries were a little disappointing - there is much better to be found in London.

...which was all we were looking for with a two-year-old in tow who was tired of vintage book stores. We ducked into this restaurant at the height of lunch-rush, but were served our ice cream quickly and with friendly smiles.

If this is supposed to be a copy of the general patisseries in France then they really need to go back to the drawing board because this is no better that average. We had chocolate profiteroles and a type of Breton Gateaux, all gooey and falling apart.

Having waited to be served a takeaway cake with my 3 year old grandson, more people came into the shop and because they were eating in I was totally ignored as I was clearly not paying 'eating in prices'. Needless to say I walked out and do not intend to use these establishments again.
