We wanted to have a business meeting in there while grabbing some food but the guy at the register pretty much kicked us out. Rude and obnoxious..

We really enjoyed this cafe. Nice to sit in the courtyard off the street and enjoy a respectable cappuccino and a yummy fruit scone with good preserves. We were in London for three days and went back twice. It's a nice little spot with reasonable...More

This branch of Patisserie Valerie has the usual menu, but stands out because of the service. We ate here several times for breakfast and the odd cup of coffee, and it's a good, reliable place in the middle of the Southampton Row eateries.

Having been let down by a local hotel for afternoon tea, we came across Patisserie Valerie in Sicilian Avenue. They offered tea and scones with cream and jam for £6.45. We sat outside, the table was a little small, but the server was charming and...More

We stopped for some coffees here on our walk around this part of London, simply because we fell over the unusual Sicilian Avenue, with its Italian architecture. The staff were pleasant and the coffee very welcome. A weird comment, I know, but TripAdvisor readers might...More

I had afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie a few days ago with some of my students. The food was really good, good portion sizes and the price is good too (£12.50 pp).

Location: 2 min. walk from Holborn tube station Atmosphere: nice café. I prefer the Valerie style and atmosphere over the Nero’s and Starduck’s coffee shops. Service: generally OK, but I had also a funny experience. I ordered two cakes and two coffees and the lady...More

Inner London’s busiest streets crisscross quiet
cobbled lanes for an effect that can be urbane or
quaint – or an intriguing blend of both – depending on
the particular corner you turn. Due to its especially
convenient location, bustling Holborn hosts an
excellent range of hotels, eateries, and shops to suit
practically any taste or budget. With major
attractions like the British Museum and Somerset House
