Their pastries are baked daily, so the earlier the better. I had cheesecake and a decaf cappuccino. The cheesecake was 3.95 GBP (6.25 USD) for a generous portion. I had to take half of it home to finish later. The cappuccino was 2.80 GBP (4.50 USD). It was good but nothing extraordinary.
I enjoyed the cheesecake but I probably wouldn't go there again. There are better places in York and Patisserie Valerie is a chain, so it lacked in personality.
Patisserie Valerie is at 5 Feasegate, just off Davygate in the city centre.
