Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely selection of cakes and pastry’s. Nice location to sit outside the cafe in the sun whether hot or wrapped up warm. Reasonably priced.

The best croissants and flat whites are to be found here, at La Pâtisserie in Shoreham! The staff are delightful, the service is efficient and friendly, the baguettes are very fresh. Very difficult to choose a sandwich as they are all so good! Also saw...some beautiful galettes on offer today! Congratulations for offering such good, genuine French food! 😋More

I live in California and every time I visit my daughter, I make sure I go to the patisserie at least once or twice. I love this place. The staff has always been friendly and helpful. I am looking forward to another trip this December...and will celebrate my 76th birthday with another one of their delicious desserts.More

Excellent venue and excellent service. I do not agree with the comments that criticise management and/or members of staff as they have always been very quick and attentive. I do not know where some people get these negative ideas from. I am willing to travel...1 and a half hour to get there, because it is the best place to meet up friends.More

We love La Patisserie! The cakes are amazing and the hot chocolate is the best in Sussex. Hélène and team melt a mix of real dark and milk chocolate drops and then add steamed hot milk for a rich and creamy and perfectly balanced result.

We come here very frequently for brunch, take away bread, snacks, light lunch or just for coffee, tea or hot chocolate. We find it to be the best shop in Sussex for enjoying and relax with family and friends. The staff are always very courteous...and efficient. We live in Lancing a couple of miles away and family members always come here from Goring-by-sea about six miles away. I am Italian, love very good coffee and La Patisserie serves the best coffee in Sussex by far. I read a review on Trip Adviser from a person called Charmaine and I must say that I can’t understand why she is not at all complimentary about the Patisserie. All I can say is thank you La Patisserie for having looked after us so well for so many years and hopefully for many more to come.More

My mother likes going here as the cakes are nice however 9 times out of 10 we are over charged so i now add everything up before I even order and always have to correct the staff when they charge me as there have been...various occasions I have had to que up again to get money back from being over charged. I am Italian so I know good coffee, it is not nice coffee here. Most of the time they miss something off our order, today it was one of the coffees. The other day we got 2 takeaway coffees and the takeaway cups were only 2/3 coffee the rest froth. There is always a problem at this place so I will not be visiting again. Other nicer places in Shoreham with competent staff who don’t over charge you and get your order rightMore

The filled baguettes are delicious. The array of cakes and pastries is authentically French. Service is prompt. Go early or late if you want a table as La Patisserie is justifiably popular, but get a takeaway at any time to eat in the nearby churchyard...or on the beach.More
