The Connaught Patisserie in London’s Mayfair ticked all my boxes for a super cool and elegant afternoon tea venue.
I think you would agree with me, if you saw the gorgeous pink interior designed by Ab Rogers and tasted the delicious pastries, that are the works of art created by Nicolas Rouzand.
Ab Rogers presented his interiors concept for the Patisserie as an exquisitely crafted box, housing beautiful and delicate jewels, that are the hand finished pastries.
Aren’t those handblown crystal lights so pretty? They look like multiple pink gem stones in the mirror.
The colour palette is serene. The pink marble floor and plaster walls impart a warm cocooning feel.
Supple leather seating in both pink and grey surround circular marble tables, with flaps cut out to allow them to fit together for larger parties. Now, to the pastries.
We were lucky to be able to sample one of The Connaught Patisserie’s Signature Connaughty hounds.
For July, the hound was a bright yellow hue, bursting with a beautiful fusion of mango and passion fruit flavours.
In fact, everything tasted amazing. As you can see above, we had many treats to try.
I went with my family, and we pretended we were MasterChef judges judging the Final.
There were a real mix of delicious flavours and textures.
I also love the fact that everything was not overtly sweet but perfectly balanced.
This is the matcha and cherry chouxThe apricot tart
And there were savoury treats too. This is the Courgette and Bresaola tart and in the background the Organic egg Mayonnaise Croissant, Confit egg yolk.
I never thought savoury treats could be pretty, until now.
The Connaught Patisserie is well worth a visit.
