"It's a lovely place, reasonable service and half decent French food. That's the problem, as a French boulangerie it's croissants should be fresh, and viennoiseries glistening and well baked. They were invested a bit like taking a supermarkets down the road and putting them on a plate. Fortunately good company rescued the disappointing food"

Fans of the Covent Garden HQ of the well-known pâtisserie chain say that, away from the bakery counters, its civilised, traditional dining room “deserves to be taken seriously” as a Theatreland destination in its own right, for an “authentically Gallic” light bite or afternoon tea. There is also a year-old, much more contemporary-style outpost in the City’s Tower 42.
