After his successful pop up at Hotel Café Royal in 2016, famed chef Albert Adrià returns to London. Voted The World’s Best Pastry Chef by The World’s 50 Best Restaurants and having built a gastronomic revolution alongside his brother, Ferran, at the legendary Michelin three-star elBulli, Adrià runs Barcelona’s hottest restaurant ‘Tickets’. Cakes & Bubbles marks his first permanent establishment outside of his native Spain.

At home on the ground floor of the modern grand Hotel Café Royal, fronting luxury shopping destination Regent Street, Cakes & Bubbles will offer a parade of exceptional desserts set to wow diners, including Adrià’s signature ‘cheese cake’ and a finely curated list of Champagnes and sparkling wines.

Cakes & Bubbles currently accepts bookings from 8 - 30 November 2018 only. On 19 November reservations will be possible for December onwards.

Had a time, the cheese cake with wine pairing and hot chocolate were delicious! Our waiter, Charlie was very friendly and gave great recommendations on how best to enjoy each dish. Would highly recommend!

When you go to visit "the best pastry chef in the world" you expect food to be exceptional. And it is. Frankly there's no other words to describe it (we tried the Sweet Afternoon Tea degustation). But what I really want to highlight in this review is the exceptional service. The experience of eating at Cakes & Bubbles is a joy and staff were absolutely amazing. To me service is always very important and here it was impeccable. Of course it helped that we were visiting at a quiet time so only other 2 tables had guests, but the attitude was right so I'm sure it's top notch with a full house as well.
Worth every penny and highly recommended.

Service outstanding, food outstanding, atmosphere fantastic. It was expensive but I think you know what your paying for, the staff have exceptional knowledge on the food and champagne.

I went with one person who was gluten free and there was lots of selection, just note down any dietary requirement when you book and if you are worried the team will call you to talk you through the options but rest assured people who are gluten free are fine.

Decided to do a quick afternoon tea with a bit of luxury. I had seen the cheesecake on insta and really wanted to try. So we went. Posh stuff and tiny perfectly formed items on the afternoon tea set with a glass of bubbly. Deliciously delicate. Bought a cheesecake to take home too. Special treat kind of place.

Very glamorous cafe in the heart of London
I was welcomed by friendly staff
We ordered teas and coffees with an additional club sandwich which was tasty
We ordered the light carrot cakes as well
And it was the most hilarious order I ever made
Super expensive and the portion was a joke for the 10 pounds (each)
I’m not sure if I am coming back soon

Fantastic taste experience, novel food presentation and impeccable service make this experience totally memorable. We loved the window table looking out at the Christmas lights on Regent Street but any time of year would make a perfect special occasion with a loved one (or more).

The service at the table was great with the waiter, but the front desk waiter was very unprofessional. We specifically asked in our booking for a table next to the window which was not given to us as busy. We were also said we would have to wait 90 minutes to have our preferred table so we erre seated by the hotel entrance door. In 5 minutes the window table was free and stayed that way for 40 minutes.
The warm chocolate cale was served cold, the hot chocolate was served tepid. The previous experience I had in this place was much better, unfortunately we got into an unpleasant member of staff. At the very end we went to comunicate to the staff our feedback in person but the same un pleasant waiter said we could complain with her supervisor. The supervisor tried to recover the situation which was very kind but it was already the end of our stay. Maybe staff training and a bit of food preparation care would bring the place back to its original standard.

Albert Adria is definitely a guarantee. However, pity that only one kind of pizza served after 4pm. Can do a bit more finger food during 12-3 or after 4pm. The tomato tartar was very good when I tried last time as it happens to be 1pm.

The cakes are exquisite and so imaginative. The staff are very friendly and service is impeccable. Don’t come here on a small budget...you’ll easily spend £100 for 2.....and that’s just for dessert. However nowhere beats Cake&Bubbles for perfect patisserie. We will be back again

The overall experience wasn’t bad and I’m glad we went. Good to see Adria doing some fun pastry.

That said, the service was pretty substandard. One girl was nice and approachable but the other gentleman seemed quite bothered that I wanted a drink while I looked over the menu and after that it was hard to get anything out of him.

The food was clever but ultimately flavour was sacrificed for said cleverness.

Amazing cakes that taste so delicious and do unusual!

This is the second time I have been and I would say that the service wasn’t as good as the first occasion when the staff took more time to explain things and chat about the chef s as and his restaurants.

I throughly enjoyed myself but felt it was not value for money, the food was tasty but very small and for the cost, I feel they could have given more cakes. I was not a fan of the cheesecake but it was tasty nevertheless. The staff were impeccable, polite, kind and very courteous. The champagne was very nice too. Overall we all enjoyed ourselves and enjoyed our moment of decadence. It was a birthday surprise for my daughters 23rd birthday. The staff sang her Happy Birthday and gave her a candle and engraved Happy Birthday in chocolate on a plate, that was very kind. Thank you 😊

Limited savoury options, couldn’t have been more eager to sell overpriced cold rice crackers pretending to be “pizza” and ply us with more champagne/drinks to ramp up the bill. Venue lovely, Desserts delicious but listening and consideration needed to service provided and some decent savoury options.
