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.
