Western Road- the Real Patisserie

This place has been open for six months or so, maybe longer. It's only recently that I've started wandering up there on a Saturday morning, and it's a little slice of sophisticated French heaven. (Run by real French people, authenticity always helps).

At the moment they have a window display of Easter treats and little chicks hung on branches from the florist down the road. Everything is freshly baked each day, wonderful savoury and sweet tarts, so reasonably priced compared to the chain bakery two doors down (this place seems to be stealing all their custom and it's not hard to see why!).

They sell Orangina in the proper dimpled glass bottles, freshly filled baguettes, chocolate gateaux which looks to die for. In short, it just has that je ne sais quoi which makes a little place so special.
