– Maison Bertaux –
The Oldest Patisserie in London

Maison-Bertaux-Soho-15

Last week, Mbosh and I headed to Maison Bertaux in Soho, the oldest patisserie in London, to catch up, drink coffee and indulge in beaucoup de gateaux Francaises! (A lot of cake.)

The Bertaux family opened this wonderful café’s doors in 1871 and it was bought by Mr Vignaud in 1901. The current owner is a woman called Michelle, and she has worked there ever since she was 14, when she started as a Saturday girl under Mr Vignaud’s grandson – the then owner…

So, she knows the place like the back of her hand (I actually discovered a new freckle on the back of my hand yesterday) and runs this kooky, quirky place like clockwork.

The inside of the café is like a treasure trove of cakes and yummies. Nooks and crannies and trinkets and chutchkies.. it’s like a magical patisserie kingdom…

We sat outside and people watched – one of my favourite pastimes. And Soho has got to be one of the best places in the world to do this – so many different characters!

I chose the below strawberry tart – I can never resist these. I remember being introduced to them by my mum on a ferry to Brittany when I was small… we ate our weight in them that holiday.

My favourite kind of French patisserie…

If you found yourself out and about in town doing your Christmas shopping and looking for a place to have a delicious cake and a cup of tea – do head to Maison Bertaux and tell them I sent you!

You’ll love it :)
