I often come to Canterbury, and I always come to Patisserie Valerie during my stays. This time I came for abreakfast, but I had even lunch lots of times! The staff is really lovely and polite. The place is clean and neat, the food is good and typical. I surely reccommend this place to those who need a relaxing break.

Sometimes this place can be very good, sometimes it's not great at all. Our last experience was for afternoon tea and it was okay. The food was average, there was no asking if we had issues for the sandwiches (meat-free or egg free, etc.), the scones tasted mass produced. The service is reasonable but for how small the place is... More

We first came and queued up for a few minutes when the waiter came and served first the couple that came after us, offering them the best table next to the window, while we were given the one at the corridor. The service was very slow to bring us the bill (we had to stand up and put our coats... More

We popped in here last week whilst shopping. It was very busy so we waited for a table. Seating is ' snug' but comfortable. There was a nice choice of light lunches and yummy cakes and a good range of hot and cold drinks. We had a cream and fruit filled delight with a lovely pot of loose leave tea.... More

A very relaxing place with the most delicious cakes and fresh coffee. Once you have tasted the cakes you will not want to go anywhere else. Enjoy.

Chosen by a friend to try for coffee and cake we were tempted by the Winter Meal Deal and my gosh! - what a great choice. Very good value and the food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Three course for £12.95. (Coffee as expected was extra) We had to take dessert home with us - and it was beautifully... More

It is located in the middle of the central street and one can easily find it. Interior is quite typical for patisseries - with a lot of glass and light. We had two types of cakes and both were very good. Coffee was very good as well.

Ordered a hand made cake for my daughters birthday and it was trouble free from start to finish. And the finished cake was out of this world and made me look like a great dad
