Exquisite chocs

We had a family selection and the chocolates were varied but all great quality, hand made. The orange slab was so perfect. Obviously not cheap but this goes to prove you get what you pay for.

The omlettes were excellent as were the pastries. Great french-press coffee brought to you in a pot. Waitstaff has limited English but our daughter is studying in France and was our interpreter. Menu is in French and English. The chocolate there is awesome - it is a patisserie, chocolatier and restaurant. Opens at 8 except Mondays.

Stopped here for lunch before visiting Chateau Amboise. Delicious lunch with many choices. Cannot say enough about the wonderful pastries! So many selections and each one prettier in appearance than the previous. Our waitress was wonderful, very engaging. I am sorry to say I cannot remember her name, but I do know she has just returned from Ireland after a... More

france is a bit of a wasteland for those looking for good coffee. But you find it here. You can sit and have breakfast and even order an extra pot. The chocolates are fun too. We got chocolate covered carmels and they were great. The carmel was softer than those you get in the states even from the fancy places.

They had full breakfasts if you wished but excellent cappucinos. service was very snappy but they left you alone to talk and eat more. Loved the vibe.

Went here for lunch after a morning of exploring the Chateau Amboise. What a pleasant place. We ate outside on the patio and enjoyed people watching while we ate lunch. The food (and dessert) was very good and reasonably priced. Definitely a nice, convenient, and local place to visit while in Amboise.

This chocolate shop is wonderful. Pastries are beautiful. Macarons were delicious. Cookies (butter with cinnamon) were great. We went back the following day for breakfast and ate omelettes outside looking at the busy, pedestrian street. It was so fun! We were also treated to a little bit of history about the Bigot family and their business (which celebrated its 100th... More

went there on a cold day and sat next to a well vented fireplace. it's a candy shop/restaurant right in front of the castle. candies/desert are very good. wine and restaurant food are not quite as excellent. decor is lovely. i'd go back.

I visited here every year with my family as a child. We would detour on our way to the south of France just to come to this patisserie. I have found memories. My father was in love with amboise and the patisseries. Every year we would sit and talk to the family. And have our photo taken with them and... More

My wife and I had just finished our visit to Clos Luce and it was 2:30PM. Per normal, particularly in November all the restaurants had closed for the afternoon after the lunch hour. We found this Patisserie open and are glad we did. They served from a nice menu in a warm (fireplace) dining area with friendly service. My wife... More
