The interior colour scheme blends orange, dark chocolate and cream. It feels quite formal and the walls could use a picture or two to break things up, but it’s very smart.Baking on site, they offer a wide array of sweet and savoury delights. Weekday opening hours are 7.30am to 8pm, so it has to cater for a breadth of scenarios.
I was visiting at breakfast time, when options include delicious looking croissants and pastries, omelettes and granola. I was in the mood for eggs, so ordered a cheese and mushroom omelette and an espresso.The coffee, from Artisan Roast was very good indeed and a lovely opener.
The omelette was delicious, too. It was elegantly presented and served with a simply dressed salad. I was very pleased with it.With welcoming and attentive service, the place has quickly established itself as a favourite with me, adding yet further to my west end eating options. I’ve already been back to sample their macarons, which were delicious.
So overall, I was suitably impressed with Patisserie Maxime. They’re doing very good work. I’d strongly recommend a visit next time you’re looking for a touch of class and elegance with your breakfast, lunch or early evening dining.
