Maison Bertaux


Established in 1871, Maison Bertaux is London’s oldest patisserie. Alongside history and tradition, you’ll find freshly baked cakes, tarts, pies and cheesecakes.

Eat in and enjoy tea, savoury pastries and cake in the eclectic shop or gallery café upstairs. You can also pick up a little treat to eat alfresco in nearby Soho Square, or commission a bespoke wedding cake.

You’ll find Maison Bertaux in the heart of London’s Soho and close to the buzz of Carnaby; areas known for quirky shops, bohemian cafes, great restaurants, live music, cabaret and an exciting pub and nightlife scene.

This is what London is about - old, historic spots, serving high quality goods. I actually meant to come to the pub next door, which is meant to be another said spot, but was just so tempted by the casual diners seated outside and the beautiful cakes in the window.

Enter the shop, place your order, and then find a seat where a server will bring you your tea and cakes, or whatever have you....more

This place gives me faith that humanity has a chance after all. That we aren't doomed to Starbucks ourselves out of existence. That uniqueness, oddities and eccentric beauty are still valued.

Because, how in this day and age of chain-restaurant vanilla Soho can this bizarre, belligerent place still exist? I ***king love it.

I stopped into Maison Bertaux on a Saturday morning a few back, for a pastry and a coffee. Given the definitive French-ness of the place, I was certain I would have that lovely experience I've so enjoyed whenever I go to Paris: pastry breakfast with coffee, the one time that I find Parisians palatable.
