Maison Bertaux patisserie

2011 December 16

The view from the street

I first found out about Maison Bertaux from word of mouth, with more than a few people telling me it has the best croissants in London.

Of course I needed to check this out for myself, so off I went on the directions given to me ‘the place with the blue front on the other end of Dean St’.

What I found out from my first visit, and subsequent visits since, is yes – they do have the best croissants in London.

Their almond croissants are particularly good. And the plain croissants. Oh, and their pain au chocolate. Well, they seem to excel in all pastries they bake.

And the best time of day to grab the pastries is first thing in the morning, when it is hot out of the oven and also warms your hands whilst eating.

The establishment itself has an eclectic, theatrical charm to it, with various decor filling the shelves. The service is also warm and welcoming, which in my case adds around 2-4 extra croissants to the basket.
