About Patisserie Valerie - Royal Exchange Square
Good value for money and staff very helpful
Visited Patisserie Valerie for the first time with a friend. We had the Winter menu, which was excellent value for money. We both had the duck, which was very tasty and then were allowed to pick any slice of gateau for dessert. The cake was delicious. Would go back.
Continental patisserie on Royal Exchange Square
This Royal Exchange Square branch of Patisserie Valerie is part of a successful group of restaurants which started in London’s Soho in the 1920s. Beautiful hand-made cakes were at the heart of Patisserie Valerie in the beginning and their magnificent window displays continue to draw customers. With stripped floors, vintage French posters and large windows, it is a cheery, airy space and the city centre location makes it ideal for indulging in the Parisian habit of watching the world go by. The outside seating area is understandably popular on sunny days.
All day menus
Patisserie Valerie serves everything from a breakfast pain au chocolat to an evening lasagne or chicken escalope. In between there are brunches, gourmet sandwiches, a selection of cream and afternoon teas plus burgers, salads and grilled toasties with a French flavour. Diners might choose to eat a light meal of salad Nicoise or take three courses centred around half a roasted corn-fed chicken with frites.
Obviously, it would be a huge mistake to leave without sampling a fresh fruit tart, mille feuille or a slice of gateau. Other attractions include the cream doughnuts, chocolate éclairs and the Belgian apple tart.
