Kova Patisserie Review

Kova patisserie is a small Japanese cafe serving Japanese teas like sencha and soba cha tea.
Alongside pretty cakes.

Kova Patisserie Matcha Mille Crepe Cake
Kova Patisserie - Hot Chocolate and Matcha Mille Crepe Cake

If you don't want to have Japanese tea, you could choose coffee. Hot, or iced chocolate. Herbal teas and traditional English black tea.

I went for a hot chocolate, which wasn't very nice. Mild, milky and a bit too watery would be the correct description of the hot chocolate I received at Kova patisserie

The most infamous cake at Kova patisserie is their matcha mille crepe. 

Which I tried in store. I also took a chocolate mille crepe slice home for later.

Other mille crepe flavours are vanilla and coconut. Kova patisserie even have a durian mille crepe available by reservation only.

The sea salt lava cheesecake looked very interesting.

I found the matcha mille crepe at Kova patisserie to be a tasty mid afternoon treat. 

It's mildly sweet, which means even someone who doesn't enjoy sweet treats that much, would like the matcha mille crepe. 

It's smooth and creamy. With noticeable matcha powder giving a healthy, slightly bitter kick to this snack. 

I was amazed by how filling hot chocolate and slice of mille crepe can be.

Kova Patisserie - Chocolate Mille Crepe Cake

The chocolate mille crepe cake by Kova patisserie is equally as yummy. It tastes creamy and chocolatey. 

Like a perfect chocolate mousse, without being too sweet.

The prices at Kova Patisserie aren't cheap, which is to be expected in such a tourist hot spot. 

You pay more to eat in at Kova, then you do to take your food and drinks away with you.

Kova patisserie in Soho is very casual. Located down a narrow back road. 

So more of a place to visit in passing, rather than to go for a date, or special occasion.

The newest Kova Patisserie location in South Kensington is a prettier sit down establishment.

Service at Kova Patisserie in Soho was quite good.

At the time of starting this review. Things were very different in London to what they are now. 

People are together in cafes. The roads were crowded. It all seems a distant memory now.

As this pandemic has gone on longer than we all might have envisioned. 

I decided to order some more Kova patisserie crepes for home delivery.

Kova Patisserie Cheesecake
Sea Salt Lava Cheesecake

I tried the earl grey mille crepe. Kova patisserie super Oreo mille crepe. 

Sea salt lava cheesecake. Japanese souffle cheesecake and the durian mille crepe.

Boy was I in for a surprise with the durian mille crepe. As soon as I opened the box a foul smell filled the room. 

Durian is a smelly fruit that made it hard for me to enjoy the taste of the mille crepe.

Kova patisserie sea salt lava cheesecake
looks like molten lava. A light, fluffy sponge cake is drizzled in salty sweet cream.

Earl grey has such a delicious taste of fragrant earl grey tea. 

It was probably my favourite of all that I tried from Kova patisserie, and would be perfect with a milky cup of earl grey tea.

Japanese souffle is a solid slightly sweet. Savoury sponge cake that wasn't too impressive.

Super Oreo has a noticeable Oreo biscuit bite throughout and oreo taste. With a layer of Oreo biscuit sandwiched between layers.

On my most recent visit to Kova Patisserie I enjoyed a slice of chocolate checkers cake at the South Kensington cafe. 
Patisserie Kova

It's a light airy space with pretty. Contrasting pink sofas and outdoor seating. However the seats need a good clean! 

I also tried a hot dirty milk boba. Available hot or cold. 

Dirty milk boba contains whole milk, brown sugar and tapioca pearls. 

I've made up my mind that I'm not much of a boba tea person. It was my second time trying one. 

It's a drink that tastes like cereal. So if you enjoy a milky bowl of cereal, you should love it. 

The chocolate checkers cake is a perfect slice of chocolate sponge cake. With hazelnut ganache. I always thoroughly enjoy cakes from Kova.
