Pastry forks at the ready for west London’s sweetest Parisian import

Hardly known for its pretty fancies, Hammersmith is moving into the fast lane with this on-trend French patisserie-café. It’s hard not to be taken by the cochineal pink frontage, retro-patterned wallpaper and walls the colour of lime curd.

After running a bakery of the same name in Paris for 20 years, the owners have upped sticks and now make their couture collection of beautifully presented pâtisserie and breads on site in west London.

Top-rate crusty baguettes and soft milk breads host life-affirming fillings. Besides meaty choices, the vegetarian options include herby pesto that contrasts with the crunch of green beans and creamy mozzarella; or there’s garlicky houmous partnered with grilled and golden-hued halloumi.

After several visits we reckon their tart aux pommes is the best we’ve tasted in London. Nothing beats its crisp puff pastry base, slathered with smooth Bramley purée and precision-sliced apple topping. Other highlights include éclairs crammed with seriously chocolatey crème pâtissière, and a moreish autumnal fig and pistachio sponge tartlet. Sainte Anne isn’t just for inbetween-times either: their baguette or croissant breakfasts – a bargain at £3 a pop – include own-made jam and a coffee.

Pitching their prices well below central London offerings, their light-bite meal deals give the sandwich chains a run for their money, so your wallet won’t feel much slimmer after a quality sandwich, posh cake and soft drink. Shame the same can’t be said for your waistline.

The best croissants in the land, patisserie to die for and bread from heaven. Man can live on bread alone when it tastes like this.

The best croissants I have had outside France and comparable to the best I've had in France. Wonderful pain de campagne and baguettes, and their cakes are favourites with all the family, including Frasier, Automne (gluten free), Tarte Normande, to name but a few!

The bread is among the best I have ever eaten in England or abroad, the pastries are unbelievably good too, particularly the pain au chocolat. The staff are always delightful and I can honestly say having Patisserie Sainte-Anne near my home enriches my existence. If they move, I will probably do so too.

Delicious, inventive, decadent pastries and lovely staff. It's a regular treat and I'm so happy to have this place in my neighbourhood.

Best croissants, viennoiseries and baguettes in London. A true parisian boulangerie moved to London from Paris' 13eme arrondissement.


Simply one of the best patisseries in London – believe me, I’m French. I absolutely love everything there… The cakes, breads, croissants and pains au chocolat absolutely taste sublime and just like they do at home. Perfect!

The place itself is a bit small but feels very cosy and the staff is the nicest.

The perfect spot for a cheeky tea or coffee with a piece of cake on a late Saturday afternoon.

Fancy finding the highest quality Parisian boulangerie and patisserie just round the corner in this somewhat non-descript 'quartier' of Hammesmith. The couple /family that run the shop are a delight and the staff unfailingly helpful. You pay for the quality but well worth it. David Broad

Having worked in a bakery in France, I had not found an authentic baguette in the UK, until I had breakfast here.

Delicious pastries and a great lunch deal. My favourite place for lunch in Hammersmith!

For the finest French baguette in west London or the tastiest pastry or guilty pleasure cake look no further. Once you have set foot inside the bakery you will be returning again and spreading the word. Well done Keiko ana Alain and your team.

If you are looking for a true and real parisian boulangerie, you have it here! It is simply delicious and baguette is fantastic.

The place where you can find a crispy baguette as tasty as if you were in Paris...

Tasty cake creations - think Maison Blanc type French patisserie - that's worth a visit even if you don't live in West London. Loved that you get a little taster of something (a mini choux, chocolate truffle or similar) with your coffee too.
