    One of the best patisseries I have ever been. Despite its location which is quite a touristic area, the vibe is totally alternative.and the cakes and tarts are so professional 💚

    Almond Croissant ftw. The place made you feel like you are in someone living room where older men discuss politics. #iLove

    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 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.

    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.
