Review on Aubaine

Aubaine is 'like very old Paris, but it's also very new London' or so runs the blurb about this most welcome French invader, which offers the folk of South Kensington a taste of Gallic culinary pleasures. It 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 the glass frontage folds back so that the place can become part of Brompton Road'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. There is second branch at 4 Heddon Street, Mayfair W1.
