My Story

My name is Joaquim Teles and I have been a Portuguese artisan pastry chef for nearly 26 years. I inherited my passion for cakes from my grandmother who was (and still is) an excellent baker.

After trying a variety of jobs I came across my dream career in patisserie at the age of fifteen after discovering that school just wasn’t for me.
I started by working in a pastry shop and I knew early on that this was what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

After having my own business in Portugal and winning multiple awards I decided to move on to broaden my horizons and add to my knowledge and further myself. So, I have travelled all over Europe to learn and hone my skills in the most renowned and respected patisseries. And what incredible years those were!

Now living happily in England I aim to bring the best of European patisserie to Norfolk by using only the finest produce sourced locally where ever possible along with my great care, attention to detail and most importantly a wonderful taste.

It is such a pleasure to now be able to have my own Patisserie with the ability to showcase the pastries I have discovered and mastered over the years under my own signature and personal twist.

What We Do:


Pick from a selection of delicious pastries, fresh bread, afternoon teas and more as well as fresh coffee, tea or cold drinks which you can enjoy inside or in our picturesque courtyard here on a real working farm in the beautiful Norfolk countryside and beside the Norfolk Broads and many beautiful walks.

You can eat in at Teles Patisserie, take away or we can even do bespoke cakes that are tailored to meet your needs or for those special events. Just give us a call and let us know!

We bake fresh everyday so be sure to pop down every morning if you would like your delicious freshly baked bread to set you up for the day and get your other essentials from Yare Valley Farm Shop on site!
