Patisserie Valerie is coming to Reading
April 24, 2012
A patisserie known for supplying stylish cakes and chocolates to the affluent and famous of Belgravia and Kensington is coming to Reading.
Patisserie Valerie started life in central London and it counts Barbara Windsor and Ronnie Corbett among its regular customers.
But the chain is rapidly expanding and is due to move in to Broad Street by the end of May.
The cafes offer hand made cakes and patisseries, continental breakfasts, lunches, teas and coffees.
Patisserie Valerie has opened a string of new cafes around the country in the last two years, including nearby Henley-on-Thames.
The Reading store will open on the site of the old Coffee Republic unit, on the corner of Broad Street and Minster Street, which has been empty since closing suddenly in July 2010.
