This used to be the best patisserie ever with the most amazing fresh macaroons.  It was also really beautiful inside.  It's all gone downhill since they started messing around with the interior.  The macaroons have shrunk and don't taste as fresh and getting served is a hit and miss affair.

I was a frequent and content customer here, however since the installation of the communal table which greatly reduces the number of good seats that overlook the Common, and the silly placement of the croissant bar which further eliminates good seating, I have found myself less than inclined to go here. Added to the very poor layout is the lack of a bathroom, increasingly lax staff and varying coffee sizes and strengths for the same style of coffee (I've never had two americanos that were the same). The last straw for me was going there looking forward to my Sunday morning coffee only to be told that there was no coffee because their grinder was broken. Sorry to be so harsh, Mac. but with a bit more common sense this place could be great. You have a wonderful space and great location. Everything else needs work ... and quick.

I'm sorry but I've now been to this cafe twice and have encountered problems both times. On this visit we sat for 45 minutes waiting for food because the waiting staff forgot about it. The food when it arrived, however, was lovely so despite this we decided to give it another chance. Sadly the food this time was absolutely terrible and frankly, I could have made a better version of what I was served myself at home. The serving staff also forgot an order yet again and we had to reorder after 30 minutes. This time there will be no furthers chances and this cafe is now sadly off the list. We will not be going back.

Authentic french bakery and patisserie! Bread is not the quality you would expect from a french bakery but I'm picky on this anyway. Cakes are simply great and always fresh. Macarons are simply the best in london to me, far from the places charging you for their name rather than the quality of the cakes they server. Don't understand how you can be disappointed for such cheap and tasty cakes!
