Hey Evelina! Welcome to N10!
How lovely to have another patisserie on our high street - another independent trader, offering a 'freshly baked by me' replacement to, the recently closed, Maison Blanc.
I popped in yesterday to check it out and was welcomed by a super friendly chap behind the counter, who offered me a bunch of samples - macaroons, red velvet cake, carrot cake... and more, including a delicious Gluten Free something.
The taste of the samples made buying a whole piece of sweet treat essential and I went ahead and ordered a Flat White and pistachio macaroon.
I watched as this same guy welcomed various customers enthusiastically and brilliantly. The place isn't totally up and running yet (wifi glitches, sorbet and sarnies to follow and overall flow to the place to slowly take shape), but he was open, honest and genuine about the whole setup and passionate about the quality of food on offer (I later found out that Eveline has supplied Fortnum & Mason... which says a lot about the tastiness of this stuff).
I was later offered a beautiful pavlova style treat, which was amazing, and I felt very happy sat on their bench seats for a little while - it was quiet and relaxed.
My visit was late in the day, but people were still strolling in to check them out - including a dinosaur... quite strange (see pic below)!!
They offer a range of patisserie style cakes and pastries, hot drinks, smoothies and cold pressed juices... and more will follow.
Opening hours are currently 9am - 6pm (I think), but I overheard they will be open from 7.30am once they're up and running at full steam.
Pop in and say hi - you'll know the guy I've mentioned... he's the one with the big smile and enthusiasm for Evelina :)
