    Pastry is just okay. Kinda pricey too. I was expecting more after reading the reviews. Oh well. You can still give it a go if you're in the area but there are definitely better spots elsewhere.

    The cheese croissant was really really really good. Melts in your mouth good! I wouldn't mind having 2 in one go. So good!

    The interior is lovely but the cakes are way below average. I had a lemon tart and it just tasted floury. Me and my friend had a cake each and it costs £9.30!!!4 quid for a slice. I want my money back

    Very personal. Small room downstairs has view to the street but the room upstairs is a world of it's own. No hurry, world can wait. Just good tea and great cakes and pastries. Reasonably priced.

    Bakery in Soho crammed with eclectic decor and delicious goodies. Warmed ham and cheese croissant is fresh and as flaky as expected.

    Homey tea room- cheesecake was soft in texture (i prefer the tougher one). Strawberry tart is nice.

    Almond croissants all sold out on a Sunday afternoon. So got an apple almond tart instead, not bad.

    Eclectic service and decor but an original gem . Sit outside with a cake and watch all the muscle Marys swanning past on the way to old Compton

    Finally delicious cakes, clearly without additives, home made! Not really a hipster place, far from glamorous tea place but still a must see!

    The mont blanc and fruit tarts have shrunk :( but the plain cheesecake is STILL AMAZING. If you're lucky, get the 'baked cheesecake', whatever that means.

    Maison Bertaux is the oldest patisserie in London, but that's not the main reason to visit it - we love the coffe and the freshly baked treats too.

    If you can get a table outside on a quite evening, this spot is a little piece of heaven. Delicious tea and cakes and a quirky crowd of bohos and Japanese ladies.
