I first went to Nice Croissant in 1995, before the current owner took over. It was a nice place to have tea/coffee and a roll or croissant. When the current owner came in 1997 (I think), it improved and has carried on doing so. The coffee is the best I have tasted in a cafe, and I have been to many, many cafes. The cakes are a picture to look at and heaven to eat. The larger gateaux and wedding cakes etc. are a picture and should be put in a picture frame, let alone eaten. the snacks and meals are delightfully prepared and delicious to eat. The main menu changes regularly, all credit to the chef. The bread, rolls and croissants are always fresh, as is everything in the shop, because everything is made on the premises. The atmosphere within the shop is always pleasant, whether you go in at 8.30am or 3.30pm, from the manager/owner to the girls who serve the beverages and food and last but certainly not least, the kitchen staff. I am a regular customer and will continue to be, as long as the current standards are maintained, and I know they will be.Report this
Very nice croissant

I completely agree with the other reviewers. We're very lucky to have a place like Nice Croissant in Wanstead and I think it's really important to support independently owned places like this. It really is no sacrifice to support it though as the coffee is excellent, the sandwiches and pastries are delicious. This is the perfect place for lunch. I recommend you arrive early though as it fills up very quickly!Report this
Nice, Nice Croissant

I have been going to Nice Croissant for about two years, and though I have moved to "trendy" Shoreditch in the east end of London, I still travel back when i can to to Wanstead to enjoy good Coffee and Particularly the Milles feux, which to my understanding are actually made on the premises, so "never a dry pie in the house" The service is friendly and efficient with the help of a rather nifty flag system, so they know where your sitting. The place is clean and tables are always cleared so you don't have to sit with the last customers empty plate " a rarity in these days of chain style coffee and sandwich houses, "you know who i mean". and adding to that, "plates" .... you eat of them. Not from some Plastic Prett-a-Costa-Bucks-a-thingy. Basically, I like Nice Croissant, A Lot, if your in that area and you want a good Coffee, Go There!Report this
BEST KEPT SECRET

SO FEW ARE AWARE BUT THE LOCALS KNOW IT WELL. NICE CROISSANT HAS A QUEUE ALMOST EVERY SUNDAY MORNING FOR FRESHLY BAKED CROISSANT AND BAGUETTES. THEY HAVE BEEN A PART OF WANSTEAD HIGH STREET FOR ABOUT 15 YEARS, MENTIONED IN TIME OUT AS PART OF THE BEST LITTLE KNOWN VILLAGE IN LONDON. WANSTEAD HAS SO FAR MANAGED TO KEEP A SMALL BUSINESS VILLAGE FEEL AND NICE CROISSANT IS A REAL FOCUS IN THIS HIGH STREET. THEY ARE ONE OF THE FEW PLACES I HAVE COME ACROSS MAKING CROQUENBOUCHE TO ORDER (OUTSIDE OF CENTRAL LONDON PATISSERIES) AND THE CELEBRATION CAKES ARE TERRIFIC. YOU HAVE TO SEE THE DISPLAY BOOK....GREAT SELECTION AND YOU CAN HAVE IT THE WAY YOU WANT IT.......NOT A CUTOUT OR LOGO TYPE OF PLACE. LUNCH TIME IS A BUZZ AND THE MENU CHOICE FOR A CAFE IS EXCELLENT. YOU HAVE TO WAIT A BIT AS IT FRESHLY PREPARED EVERY TIME. THERE SHOULD BE MORE PLACES LIKE THIS AROUND, RATHER THAN THE SAME STARBUCKS ON EVERY STREETReport this
