“Average food and service.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013 via mobile

The service is consistently poor in here whether popping in for a cake or eating in, which isn't recommended given there are better places to eat in Bath. The food is really just average and not homemade.

Disappointed but will go back for a cake as they are hard to beat.

“fabulous cakes shame about the service”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

you are instantly tempted in to Valeries with their fabulous range of cakes, which are as good as they look. However u get the feel of a traditional French patisserie in which u would expect home made delights, but sadly i don't think they are all made on site. We were let down by poor service and not so friendly staff. I was ignored at the till point by two members of staff, one of which looked right past me to speak to another customer, when i said "excuse me could someone serve me" i was then left waiting longer untill somone finally served me. Put me off completely.

“Elegant coffee and pastry stop in the shadow of Bath Abbey”
Reviewed December 1, 2012 via mobile

Stopped off at this cafe because of the tempting pastry selection and the promise of free Wi-Fi. Did not know this was a chain and may not have stoppe on had I known, however, there was nothing of a chain feel.
The service was friendly but they were very busy and short staffed on a Sunday mid-morning. Bright, cheerful and clean, with big windows for people watching near the Abbey.
I ordered a lemon puff pastry and a latte and the quality was excellent. I would assume all pastries are made in house and from scratch because of the quality and delicate flavor. The latte was perfect, obviously made by a skilled barista.
Would definitely visit Patisserie Valerie again in any location.

“Not what I was expecting but still fairly good though”
Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

I wanted to come here for while. Came here on a Friday and it was busy. The waiting staffed seemed rushed. The drinks were ok and the cakes seem to up to the normal. The interior did have the French pastry feel to it which was lovely
