“Our Favorite Patisserie”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

We had the majority of our breakfasts here during our 12 night stay in Amboise. There were four of us so every day we would each pick a pastry (sometimes I did two!) and then would cut it into quarters so we could sample a variety of pastries. Everything was fresh and excellent and the coffee good also. We loved the young girl who waited on our table also.

“Good Lunch Option”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

My wife and I enjoyed lunch here on our visit to Amboise as part of our cycling holiday in the Loire Valley. We enjoyed a simple lunch of baguettes and coffees. The range of pastries and sweets was also impressive. The staff were pleasant and courteous. This was relaxed dining at its best.

“Heart breakfast”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

The 4 us ventured out for breakfast. We found the patisserie. The coffee was served very hot with a pitcher of hit milk. We all ordered the complete breakfast. 2 croissant wit butter and each had a different home made jam. Everything was delicious and the pics was only 7€ per. Great food, great price, it's a keeper. We want to go back on Monday, it was close, we were very disappointed.

“Good for breakfast........”
Reviewed 1 October 2013

Tables are available inside and outside this bright and cheery patisserie - take a seat and someone will serve you at the table; go to the till when you're done, to pay.

It was a good place for a breakfast croissant or pain beurré and café au lait. The American breakfast even included cereal. The range of cakes, pastries and macaroons looked fabulous - I wish we'd had the opportunity to sample more.

A wonderful range of pastries, crepes, savouries and chocolates. Well worth a visit - a reasonably priced patisserie with great choice and exceptional quality. We bought lots!
