“French flavour in Darlington.”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

Robineau made my daughter's wedding cake 5 years ago and our guests are still talking about it!,,
Since then I have continued to visit this little gem. Ok it is not cheap but quality sells. Jane and Frederic continue to invent new delicacies to delight the palate, in the shop and the restaurant. As soon as I walk into the shop I feel as though I am in France, the sights and smells are amazing!
I am sure that whatever the occasion you will not be disappointed,

“Beautiful treats”
Reviewed January 23, 2013 via mobile

This is my favourite place to go for an occasional treat. Their window display in itself is worth a look, but you're bound to be enticed in! Where do I start? Scones are fab, shortbread is perfect, the Cointreau chocolate cake with gold leaf is not to be missed! It is pricey, but you can not put this place in the same league as any other local bakery. This is a high quality patisserie. Their artisan breads are also beautiful. Highly recommended.
