Belle Epoque Patisserie
Stepping into the Belle Epoque Patisserie http://www.belleepoque.co.uk/ on Newington Green is like being on holiday as it’s just like a patisserie in a town or village in France with its beautiful display of tartes and gateaux.
I wouldn’t dare visit too often as their range of patisserie is irresistible. Today I had a fraisier which was wonderful and decorated with a personalised mini chocolate. As I like my coffee strong I was able to choose one with 100% arrabiata beans and an extra shot.
A choice of pizzas, quiches and a huge range of sandwiches and drinks are on offer as well as artisan bread and chocolate. You can even pretend you’re in France by drinking citron presse.
The shelves are lined with loads of jam, biscuits and other French products you might not easily find anywhere else.
There is a patio area at the back of the cafe as well as seating on the pavement and you can hire the back room for parties.
You could even buy a breakfast basket and take it across to the Green for a morning picnic. Nice.
