OrÃƒÂ©e, a traditional boulangerie full of French flair and expertise but created in London has opened open a new store this month on High Street Kensington.
A taste of rural France in the capital, OrÃƒÂ©e creates freshly-baked viennoiserie, artisanal breads and fine patisserie alongside breakfasts, brunches, lunches and coffees. From the hearty to the healthy and the virtuous to the indulgent.
Bringing to the table traditional French baking techniques, ingredients and flavours, mixed with the bustling, cosmopolitan energy of the British capital, OrÃƒÂ©e owner, Laurent d’Orey, is on a quest to bring the joys of French breakfast, brunch and lunch to Londoners – without the trip through the Channel Tunnel.
The pale blue shop front adorned with gold leaf signage hand-painted by France’s last-remaining traditional ornamental glass artist, Lucien Helle, makes OrÃƒÂ©e a feast for the eyes as well as a temptation for the tastebuds.
Pretty pÃƒÂ¢tisserie sitting on marble-topped counters offer a moment of indulgence (and plenty of Instagram likes), while the seasonal brunch and lunch menus are ideal for delicious mid-week lunch meetings or leisurely Saturday morning dates, and, of course, the bread table – it’s London’s best!
The High Street Kensington store is located at 147 Kensington High Street, W8 6SU. It joins OrÃƒÂ©e’s existing branches on Fulham Road and King’s Road.
