When you visit this visually stunning patisserie on the Kings Road, you will immediately realise why it’s so popular on Instagram. But it’s definitely not a case of style over substance. Maitre Choux is the worlds first patisserie to specialise in choux pastry.
“All of our creations are truly unique, and we regularly update our range with seasonal influences to take advantage of what nature does best. We always use the freshest ingredients available.”
The decor is as stunning as the cakes with that famous wall of flowers which is a stark contrast against the otherwise white walls, giving a clean and light space in which to indulge your sweet tooth. Choose eclairs, choux buns and croquettes in a selection of intense flavours such as violet, rose and cappuccino, our only dilemma was that we couldn’t choose which ones to try as we wanted them all! Champagne Afternoon Tea is also available but must be pre-booked.
If sweet is not your thing then they do have a selection of savoury eclairs which are just as photogenic. You can also take them away to enjoy later or order online for that extra special tea party! There are branches of Maitre Choux in Kensington, Soho and Fortnums. Whichever one you visit be sure to take your camera!
Here’s what Archie and Freddie have to say about Maitre Choux:
We were very welcome in this Chelsea patisserie and were allowed to sit on the seats to get photos of the flowers, please take a blanket as this place is very clean.
There wasn’t any water available to us so make sure to take your own.
The cafe is very small with only a few tables and not much space so choose the time you visit carefully. The humans loved it and we are always happy to be with them in their favourite places.
