Patisserie Valerie set to open in Belfast creating 25 jobs

Continental café and cake shop Patisserie Valerie is opening an outlet in Belfast.

The chain, which operates more than 100 cafés across the United Kingdom, will open its first Northern Ireland shop on May 24 in Donegal Square,  creating 25 jobs.

The flagship Northern Ireland store will offer the brand's patisserie and cake range, which are handmade by bakers on site.

Paul May, CEO of Patisserie Holdings, said:“We’re really excited about opening our Belfast café, especially as it’s our first to open in Northern Ireland.

“Customers have been asking us to come to the city for a long time, our store in Belfast is just the start of our expansion into Northern Ireland, where we hope to open more stores in the future.”

Patisserie Valerie was first opened in Frith Street in London's Soho in 1926 by Belgian born Madame Valerie. She came to London on a mission to introduce fine Continental Patisserie to the English.
