Afternoon Tea At Patisserie Valerie: Places To Eat In York

Patisserie Valerie

Every month, my grandma and I head out somewhere nice for food and a catch up. It’s so lovely to spend some alone time with grandma, especially as she has eight grandchildren, and with me being the eldest, it can sometimes be difficult to spend that quality time with her.

Last week, we headed to Patisserie Valerie at York Designer Outlet for afternoon tea. Afternoon tea is actually one of my favourite things ever – in fact, it’s my dream to own my own afternoon tea shop when I retire – so naturally I was delighted when my grandma suggested we go there for something yummy to eat.

Patisserie Valerie

We ordered the Afternoon Tea for Two, which at £25 for two people is incredibly good value for money, especially considering how delicious everything was! We started off by ordering a hot chocolate and a pot of tea which came in the cutest Patisserie Valerie mugs! The hot chocolate was absolutely delicious, and the tea was very refreshing!

A selection of sandwiches, scones and yummy treats then came out, all beautifully presented on a cake stand. Being a blogger, I obviously had to take a picture before we could dive in; sorry grandma!

Patisserie Valerie

The selection of sandwiches included a range of smoked salmon, egg mayonnaise, ham and mustard, chicken and pesto with tomatoes, cucumber AND mini vegetable quiches! I couldn’t believe the wide variety of incredible fillings; they were so yummy (my favourite was probably the chicken).

The next layer of the cake stand included two types of scones; two fruit scones and two plain scones, accompanied by a choice of jam and cream. The scones were still warm, buttery and deliciously crumbly; they were absolute perfection.

Now it was time for the really good stuff: the cakes! We were greeted with a selection of chocolate eclairs, a Victoria sandwich, a mini chocolate mousse, a carrot and walnut cake and a mini mixed berry mousse. By this stage however, we were getting pretty full so we decided to eat the eclairs and take the rest home!

Patisserie Valerie

We were also offered unlimited refills of our drinks and I’m definitely not one to say no to another hot chocolate! Our waiter was also incredibly lovely, and I’m afraid I didn’t quite catch his name but he was ever so helpful and accomodating!

I had such a lovely time at Patisserie Valerie, eating scrumptious cakes and catching up with my grandma, and I’d definitely recommend heading there if you’re looking for somewhere lovely to have afternoon tea!

    Patisserie Valerie is amazing for afternoon tea I’ve been before with my nan and they let me have cappuccinos instead of the drink options because I didn’t like anything else! The staff are always amazing too x

    Awww how lovely to share this experience with your Grandma! I love a good afternoon tea, there’s no better opportunity to sit down, chat, and have a leisurely time with a close friend or a relative! Those scones and eclairs look absolutely delish, you certainly got a wide selection of treats! Thank you for sharing your experience!

      Ah no that’s a shame, I think you can take some cakes home so you could always arrange an afternoon tea at home for her! X

    SO CUTE! I’ve always wanted to go for an afternoon tea, so I shall be planning to do in the near future. Patisserie Valerie is a great pick – I almost always order birthday cakes from them, they’re just so delicious 😀
