Emily in Paris is one of those Netflix shows that you either love or hate. Or rather perhaps, hate to love.
While it’s of course set and filmed in the French capital, you don’t necessarily need to travel to feel like you’re in the hit series.
Hidden in West London is a pretty bakery perfect for pretending to be Emily in Paris.
Patisserie Sainte-Anne moved from Paris to London back in August 2014.
After 20 years of the popular bakery on the French capital’s 13th arrondissement, we get to enjoy it in Hammersmith.
The pink-fronted patisserie sells a range of classic French treats, all for less than £10.
A French-family run business, they source their chocolate from Belgium and their croissants are made with butter from France.
Expect fresh breads, pastries, cakes and of course, macaroons. Patisserie Sainte-Anne bake a range of delightful cakes as well as offering all sorts of French-filled sandwiches.
Perfectly picturesque both outside and within, you can sit and sip coffee whilst feeling like the star of your own Netflix show in this mini slice of Paree.
London has it all – the best nightlife, food, drink, events, markets, everything!
