Cédric Grolet at The Berkeley
With a string of accolades citing him as the best pastry chef in the world, Cédric Grolet – known for his trompe-l'œil artistry, Fruits and Flowers – has opened the doors to his first patisserie outside of France, Cédric Grolet at The Berkeley in London.
Positioned on Knightsbridge, with leafy views over Hyde Park, Cédric Grolet at The Berkeley is home to the chef’s signature viennoiserie, cookies, cakes and standout patisseries for takeaway, all made each morning fresh for the day, with a 'once they are gone, they are gone!' policy. Currently sold separately in Paris, Cédric Grolet's most famous creations, his fruits and flower cakes, are sold together for the very first time. Alongside these standout creations is an exclusive for London: a signature trompe-l'œil, where Cédric Grolet and his team have created an illusion of his favourite British cake, a classic scone, as a tribute to Britain.
For those who want more than a takeaway experience, discover Cédric Grolet's Counter, which hosts a globally exclusive dining experience inside the lab. Sat around a counter divided into two sets of four seats either side, guests will be treated to a menu of signature tastings, five sweet and two savoury, served with champagne, while the team of chefs makes finishing touches to these staggering creations.
Cédric Grolet's Counter is priced at £135 per person (exclusive of service charge). Bookings are open for three sittings daily - 10.30am, 1.30pm and 4pm.
Due to the nature of the pastries and the ingredients used to create them, we are unable to accommodate dietary requirements.

The pastry lab
Designed by French interior designer Rémi Tessier as a high end pastry ‘lab’ with polished stainless steel, the walls feature carved flowers and lemons, representing Cédric Grolet’s first ever union of his fruit and flower creations, with the scallop floor tiles representing the apple slices found in the ‘tarte aux pommes’ he enjoyed as a child.
