Review on Aubaine
Following on from the success of Aubaine in South Kensington, its younger sister is now offering something similar for the folk of Mayfair. Like the original, this branch combines the virtues of a boulangerie, pâtisserie and café with the bonus of a genuine old-style bistro dealing in authentic bourgeois cooking.
It is emphatically an all-day venue, kicking off with breakfast, moving through lunches and afternoon snacks to fully-blown suppers. Rustic furniture and fresh flowers set the tone, all ages are welcome and there are tables outside for those who want to soak up Heddon Street's pavement life.
There are endless temptations here, from croissants, brioche and pain au chocolat to tarte au citron, madeleines and gâteaux - not forgetting mugs of chocolate and grand crème. As for lunch and dinner, think salade niçoise, coquilles St Jacques with leeks and spinach, coq au vin, tuna tartare with sauce vierge, nougat glace, crème brûlée. Wash it all down with something from the full-blooded Francophilic wine list.
