London’s top spots for French fancies

Posted at 12:15 pm, November 2, 2014 in Food & Drink

This is the year that ‘baked + French’ became a winning formula in London. Nothing seems to get our dough rising like a mouthful of millefeuille or a taste of tarte au citron.

To join the crème-loving crowd, check out Aux Pains de Papy in King’s Cross for its ace selection of top-rate rustic breads, sandwiches and big fat chocolate éclairs. Or head west to Hammersmith, where our daily bread got that bit more interesting with the opening of Patisserie Sainte-Anne. Everything is made on site – breads, dainty pastries, and light snacks.

In a different league altogether is La Patisserie des Rêves on Marylebone High Street – arguably the high priestess of posh Parisian cakes, and with platinum price tags to match. Here you can splash the cash on such refined bites as made-to-order millefeuille.
