"Recommended to us recently by New Zealand-born, French-based chef, Nick Honeyman, Vaniye is his go-to for croissants. Honeyman tells us the traditional, and probably most popular, pastry is hard to get right, but pastry chef Sonia is on the money."

In a dreamy realm of its own when it comes to fancy cake shops
"Visitors to this chic and understated establishment off the beaten path of the Parnell shops might well think they’ve walked straight into a high-end pâtisserie on the left bank of Paris. Shrouded in the hush of a luxury goods store but without the pretension, Pâtisserie Vaniyé is in a dreamy realm of its own when it comes to fancy cake shops."

"The refined, modernist creations produced at Vaniye are displayed in serried ranks in an elegant glass cabinet. Like works of art, it is hard to choose a favourite, though they also make petit fours if you prefer more than one!"
