Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the current (2016) edition.

Bejewelled éclairs, a rainbow sweep of macarons and chocolate globes with a mirror glaze almost perfect enough to see your own reflection are more than enough to commend this otherwise unassuming patisserie in Stockbridge. A minimalist beige interior lets the cakes do the talking and a well-stocked cabinet is motivation enough to bring shoppers through the door. While front of house retains a calm air of sophistication complete with French music playing and a few carefully chosen pictures and paper lamp shades, pastry chef Arnaud Djavanshir is working hard in the back kitchen to ensure a steady stream of painstakingly perfect pastries. Happily, they’re as pleasing on the palette as they are on the eye and there will be no regrets over a coffee teamed with a chewy pistachio macaron.
