Cédric Grolet at The Berkeley

Step inside Cédric Grolet at The Berkeley – and into the mind of a true visionary. After joining Le Meurice as sous chef in 2012, Cédric Grolet rapidly rose through the ranks and introduced the world to his sweetly styled Fruits and Flowers, through his own boutiques and bestselling books. Today, the renowned pastry chef’s first pâtisserie outside of Paris, overlooking Hyde Park, is a true feast for the senses.

Each artfully crafted creation is as visually beautiful as it is delicious to eat. There’s the croissant that’s the talk of the town, made-that-morning viennoiserie and rich, roasted coffee that elevates the daily grind – served inside or alfresco. Or come with company in the afternoon for sharing cakes that marry flavour and flair.

Shifting with the seasons, hallmark trompe-l'œil signatures can be enjoyed in the pâtisserie or ordered via click and collect. The new collection captures the shades and scents of summer – from blush peach and verbena ganache to the raspberry financier that’s tart by name and nature. This season’s ‘flower’ is a zingy homage to citrus, layering lemon marmalade and gel in sunshine tones. When it comes down to the crunch, the ‘Almond’ marries nutty praline and biscuit with smooth caramel notes. And there is a plant-based tribute to the British strawberry, perfectly paired with vegan basil ganache.

For an up-close-and-personal look at the innovation behind the art, take a front row seat at the Chef's Counter for a tasting menu of six sweet and two savoury courses. Or experience Goûtea, Cédric Grolet's twist on afternoon tea, here and at The Berkeley Café.

Time for Goûtea

A showcase of pâtisserie elegance, Goûtea fuses the French tradition of sweet snacking with the best-of-British afternoon tea. Savoury classics include a chicken mayonnaise croissant, burrata and tomatoes, and a cucumber and tzatziki tart. This season’s sweet edition is a celebration of bold, beautiful berries. Expect in-miniature creations of the strawberry choux fraisier and candy-pink raspberry framboisier, with cloud-like cherry clafoutis hiding a secret croissant base. From savoury to sweet, course by course, it’s a picture-perfect collection.

Signatures to savour

Summers is signed, sealed and delivered with flair courtesy of the chef’s seasonal signatures. Go big and bold with a duo of XXL entremets: the ‘Almond’ and the ‘Peach’, both delicious by design. Meanwhile the cookies are summer in a nutshell, marrying velvety caramel and crisp almond praline, or with a raspberry twist. Balmy days are best spent lingering over the apricot lunette, with a buttery Basque biscuit base and apricot three ways: as a marmalade, a gel and served fresh. Clafoutis come studded with cherries, while there are two takes on choux – the fraisier that heroes strawberries, and the framboisier that stirs memories of summer days picking raspberries.


For front row seats to the theatre of the pâtisserie, Cédric Grolet presents the Chef’s Counter. This one-of-a-kind dining experience places guests at the pass, giving a rare window into the kitchen – and the techniques and flair of the pastry chefs. Enjoy a tasting menu of seasonally shifting masterpieces - six sweet and two savoury courses - sip champagne and watch showstopping creations come to life.


From that standout feast to a magnificent wedding centrepiece, celebration cakes by Cédric Grolet are exquisite, edible works of art. Choose from three re-imaginations of the classic Saint Honoré which all cater for 70 or more guests: a tall and tierred creation, a showstopping single tierred cake or stunning number-shaped delights, all available in either decadent vanilla or chocolate.

Le Petit Déjeuner

For a deliciously different start to the day, Cédric Grolet puts his spin on breakfast at The Berkeley Café. Opt for a curated selection of signatures, including petite viennoiserie, an exquisite Waffle Flower or slice of French toast, followed by fresh fruit perfection. Or go à la carte for just-baked croissants and daily specials, accompanied by a get-up-and-go juice, coffee, tea – or glass of ice-cold champagne for extra indulgence.
