We went here with a 'voucher', but this made no difference. We were well looked after and had a great time. The coffee and tea were lovely and the food was very yummy. Lots of small bits to pick at and a great way to sample a range of treats. Been back for just coffee and will visit again.

perfect place to sit outside and watch the world go buy with a coffee and a slice of delicious cake especially now that they offer gluten free food too!

We opted for the Afternoon tea today.It was tasty and we'll presented but tiny and the tea pots are really only suitable for one person.

We came for afternoon tea with a Groupon voucher. We were really looking forward to it after reading reviews and looking at pics. When we arrived, we saw lots of other people enjoying their afternoon teas which was a good sign. We got the same menu as a full paying customer plus we got good service which doesn't always happen... More

Ventured into Patisserie Valerie for breakfast with my other half. We both ordered the Eggs Benedict as a treat - we each received a delicious but enormous portion. Usually I would consider this dish to be one of the lighter cooked breakfasts but not in this cafe! Valerie clearly has its own unique take on the classic: Two poached eggs... More

While visiting good friends in the area, and after having finished our tour of Canterbury Cathedral, our host suggested we have an after-midday bite here. We have to say the food was decent, certainly better than the service. However, that problem was in the kitchen. Anyway, we all eventually had something different and it was pretty good. My Black Forest... More
