“A piece of old Soho that outshines all newcomers”, this “eccentric and delightful” pâtisserie has just celebrated its 150th anniversary – in premises opened by a Parisian exile in 1871. The “delicious cakes and pastries” are still made on site, and it’s a “perfect spot to watch the world go by”. Generations of bohos, artists and revolutionaries have passed through the door – including Karl Marx – and Bastille Day, 14 July, is always celebrated here.

This “eccentric but marvellous treasure” is a Soho landmark and “one of the few remaining original London pâtisseries”. “Gateaux to die for” and “wonderful tea and scones” provide a “trip down memory lane” in premises opened by a Parisian exile in 1871 and graced by Karl Marx and Virginia Woolf as well as generations of Soho bohos.

A “Soho institution that should be experienced” – this French teahouse (est 1871) offers “wondrous pâtisserie and very good tea (in teapots) in the most charming, if somewhat ramshackle, surroundings”. It’s a “window on Soho”, so “just sit with a delicious cake and watch the world go by”.
