About The Patisserie


The Patisserie, Illovo was established in 2003 and acquired by Helen Theo of Helen’s Cakes in 2011. Since Helen has always been passionate about delighting her customers with her phenomenal baking, it seemed like the perfect fit.


From a relaxed breakfast to a celebratory high tea, served in silver teapots with teatime treats on Royal Albert, The Patisserie is the perfect place to meet. Famous for its authentic Parisian macaroons, petit fours, red velvet cupcakes and Mille Feuille, you’ll find it hard to pick just one!


Our barista is on hand of whip up the perfect coffee, or our friendly staff will pour you the perfect cup of tea.


For breakfast, enjoy our homemade muesli with fresh fruit and full-cream yoghurt, or a plate of fluffy scrambled eggs with Parma ham and grilled tomato. Our signature Salmon fishcakes with rocket mayonnaise dressing is a firm favourite with ladies (and gentlemen) who lunch, as are our quiches and chicken pies.


You can also take a taste of Paris home with you in our beautifully decorated cake boxes, be it a whole carrot cake or a selection of cupcakes, tarts and biscuits. We have a wide range of muesli, jams, salad dressings, fudge and loaf cakes which make lovely gifts. We can also make up personal corporate gift hampers to suit your budget.
