The espresso here is very Parisian – and that is not necessarily meant as a compliment. Perfectly good of its type, but nothing to write home about. The food is also very Parisian, and this is definitely meant as a compliment. Yvon Coignard has a five-star CV, and he knows his craft well. A small oval of the Languedoc bread fougasse had a topping of meltingly sweet caramelised onions and salty lardons; wonderful. But it’s the display of jewel-like patisserie that will really make you think you're in St Germain rather than Ealing. Divided around equally between chocolate and fruit, they are a pleasure to look at. And, based on the evidence of a miniature tarte tatin, a pleasure to eat. Ealingites are lucky. We hope they know it.

I come to this patisserie every day and the coffee is really excellent, not bitter like in so many places but robust with well rounded flavours. The patisserie products are just to die for and Yvon keep coming up with new products most weeks which makes it even more exiting.
