Undoubtedly some of the best pastry I have ever eaten. However the prices are a bit high. But still it is worth going one time to try!

Fabulous cakes which were well worth the queue. Lovely building and enjoyable to drink tea and eat cake in tea shop which has been there since 1767. Pricey but worth every penny!

I love this place, we popped in to see if they could accommodate a party of 15. We made a booking for one hour later. We wandered around the cobbled streets and then headed back. We were shown to our table on the upper floor. Service was slick. Our orders were taken and delivered promptly. Rhubarb tarts, Millefeuilles, Religieuse (salted... More

Great option for an afternoon treat and a cup of tea. Famous for its vanilla gaufres, it is a little bit pricy but really worth it !
