Primrose Patisserie – Primrose Hill

I had heard and read great reviews of this place but when we visited Primrose Patisserie, it was a bit of a disappointment. A latte and a mocha were ordered but we were given a cappuccino instead of the latte. The coffee was awful. The mocha tasted like toffee and I couldn’t even finish the cup. They do not do soy milk.

In contrast to this, the apple crumble cake was tasty and it was a generous portion. You can buy whole cakes. If you were to ask for a warm croissant, it will just be microwaved. Come here for the cakes but not for the coffee. They do a range of hot and cold food too.

The service was ok, not really service with a smile. The cafe had a chilled atmosphere with relaxing music. I guess the bonus about this place is that it is in a nice location.

    I’d also read and heard great things about this cafe, but to be honest – it didn’t live up to any of it. Ok, the cakes were really nice and worth the visit , if that’s just what you want. But it wasn’t what I went for, I wanted a good cup of coffee and someone to serve it to me with a smile. Neither of that was delivered and the coffee was terrible.

    I don’t even want to go into why the girl putting the clean cups onto the coffee rack thought it be sensible to sneeze all over them at the same time.

    Maybe I’ll try again in a months time to see if things change, but first impressions last with me and I’m not impressed at all with this visit.
