Afternoon Tea: Patisserie Valerie - Bridge Street, Cambridge

Cakes: Victoria sandwich, chocolate éclairs, carrot & walnut cake slice, mixed berry mousse slice, double chocolate mousse slice

After having a cheeky slice of Patisserie Valerie's chocolate, honeycomb and caramel cake yesterday, we had talks of coming back for their afternoon tea if we had time before we left Cambridge. Luckily, we did, and with being on a little bit of a budget, the Groupon deal of £19 for two people seemed like a steal!

Sandwiches: Cucumber on white bread, Smoked salmon & cream cheese on brown bread, Egg mayonnaise & cress on brown bread, Ham spinach & mustard on white bread, Chicken, pesto & sunblazed tomatoes on brown bread, Mini Vegetable Quiche

All the traditional items were present, all nicely presented and difficult to fault. As it always seems to be, the afternoon tea was deceptively filling and I, James (aka noo noo) ended up eating most of the cakes as Jessica couldn't make it all the way through, and can say that they were all delicious. Of course Valerie are best known for their massive cakes that are always tantalisingly placed in the windows, so little mini cakes were a nice change!

The scones came with a nice selection of jams, which to be fair you don't always get. All in cute little jars were a selection of strawberry, raspberry, blackcurrant and apricot. Of course with clotted cream too. 

Scones: Fruit scones and plain scones, with strawberry & raspberry jam with clotted cream

The service seemed unnecessarily rushed but nethertheless we got everything we wanted quickly and set us up nicely for a final stroll to the station and journey back to London. 

If you are looking for an affordable afternoon tea with everything you'd get a few times the price, this is definitely the place to come, just remember the Groupon voucher!

  1. There is a Patisserie Valerie on the high street in Oxford which my parents always used to visit when they came down to drop me off at uni, but after the horrendous service we received in there a couple of times (long wait for food in an empty cafe, food served cold, food served cold a second time when we asked for it to be reheated), I haven't been back in years! Their cakes do look very tempting though, especially the carrot and walnut slice!

    1. Oh no that's terrible, this was the first time we've sat inside and the service felt rushed too but the cakes to make up for it! Hope you have better service if you go back!
