Multi Award winning ‘Joakim Prat Pastry Chef‘ maker of these colourful patisseries French Eclairs with a modern twist is a must to check out in London if you are visiting South Kensington or after an afternoon treat.

The Choux pastry is a light dough that rises in the oven, leaving the inside soft and hollow and the outside golden and crispy. Definitely, a creative work of art created by Joakim and a perfect treat for a gift or as a snack for friends and families.

After seeing these irresistible eclairs a quite often on Instagram. I felt I had to go and pay a visit on my way home from work one day. Located just a few minutes walk from South Kensington Station. These desserts come in various toppings and the colours are stunningly designed on each eclair. The prices of each choux vary, where you can check out from their website or at their stall.

There have now just opened up a second branch in Soho on 60 Dean Street off Tottenham Court Road station, which now has a really nice setting just for those Instagram picturesque lovers. I went today to check out their new branch and it was well and truly stunning new look. Likewise, with their yummy eclairs, there are simply scrumptious.
