It's been a go-to patisserie in Milan since the 19th century - it joined the Prada group in 2014 - and now Marchesi 1824 has opened its doors in London, on Mount Street to be exact. The new pastry shop will be open all day, serving Mayfair folk with top quality coffee and fine pastries, opening into the early evening for cocktails.
Hot Dinners popped along for a look on the opening day - here's what we found:
As for prices, well they're pretty much what you would expect from somewhere in the heart of Mayfair. A club sandwich will set you back £18 while an Aperol Spritz will be £13. On the other hand, the coffee's not quite as pricey as at Alain Ducasse, so that's something.
