TC Patisserie

10 Lairgate, Beverley HU17 8EE

At TC Patisserie they serve a delightful afternoon tea packed full of homemade sweet and savoury treats. 

“We are a family run business in Beverley, East Yorkshire. We began our journey in 2007, when Thierry began making croissants, brioche and fruit tarts at home and taking them to sell at Beverly’s Saturday market, they soon became very popular, so we expanded to Cottingham market. Pocklington market and Beverly’s Wednesday market. During this time, it was always our dream that we would eventually open a shop. We found a place that we could manage and in August 2008 we opened T C Patisserie. We have worked hard to build up a good business and have many loyal customers, both in the shop and on the market, which we continue to do. We make all our croissants, brioche, patisseries and savouries on the premises.”
