Forget drooling over Bakeoff on the telly, 2021 Great British Bake Off: The Professionals finalist, Julien Plumart, brings his expertly crafted sweet treats fresh from the telly to our ‘hood.

Located on Queens Road just a skip from Brighton train station, Julien Plumart Café et Patisserie is a quintessentially Parisian tea room brightened up by rows of colourful macarons, cakes and fruit tarts. We put it to the test at this year’s Muddy Awards, and the judges (Muddy’s sweet-toothed team) voted 10s across the board.

Having started pastry school when he was just 15 and opening his first shop in 2008, Julien undoubtedly knows his way around a bag of flour, but his pretty presentation is one of the café’s biggest appeals. Because, let’s face it, who doesn’t love an Insta-worthy pastry?

Love a finger sarnie and cake? Come in, sit down, you’re in for a treat; Julien serves everything from ham and cheese croissants to croque monsieur alongside expertly handled sweet treats. No wonder the café always has a queue – two (okay, four) macarons to go, please.
