Patisserie Valerie Kensington Church Street

SquareMeal Review of Patisserie Valerie Kensington Church Street

From bohemian beginnings in 1920s Soho, Patisserie Valerie’s unstoppable rise has seen the group grow to some 49 outlets & counting. The original Madame Valerie would doubtless be glad to see how far word has spread of her famous pastrywork (there are now branches in Cambridge, Leeds, Wolverhampton & beyond), though one suspects she might detect a dip in quality. Patisserie Valerie is good at recreating that all-important continental atmosphere (even in new builds), which makes it a pleasingly buzzy place for a croissant or brioche with morning coffee. Pastries & bigger breakfasts (eggs Benedict, full English et al) give way to casual lunches such as Greek salad, fishcakes or a tuna club melt, while the afternoon is best devoted to cream-filled gâteaux, sugary doughnuts & French tarts.

This review relates to Patisserie Valerie Holland Park Avenue Kensington not listed as a branch on SM but a short walk away. I requested Take Away cakes. Surly unsmiling service by a sole foreign female member of staff made me suspicious as the charge £6.00p (I had just checked the cake prices in the window.) I had to request a receipt. On examining it my suspicions were confirmed. I had been charged twice for one single muffin. The muffin was voluminously wrapped in a crunched up big paper bag with the other item so if I hadnt checked could have gone all the way home with it. The resulting apology had the air of a well rehearsed cop out though I let it pass as I was handed a refund. Quite a nasty little incident on a lack lustre afternoon that made one think.

I like Patisserie Valerie for take-away pastries on the weekends. It is ideally located for post-church treats and nicely situated away from the bustle of High Street Kensington. I've also ordered a cake from them- Galette des Rois- which was lovely. I've been many times to the cafe for tea around 16h, but the atmosphere seems to have degraded & I can think of other places I would rather be than that particular room. So I wouldn't sit there for tea with friends, rather take something away. Great choice of pastries, well presented & friendly staff, just not the prettiest atmosphere. Maybe ok for taking a shopping break, but even then, I'd probably go to Whole Foods.
