“Best Breakfast - Bad Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

This is my favorite place to eat breakfast, but its based on the food only. Most of the time the service is pretty bad, but the food makes up for it too me. If you are not in a hurry, and just want good food, then Chez Celine is the place to go.

“good, but not great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

maybe it's because our friends were raving about how great this place is that they over-hyped it, but when we had breakfast we felt it was good, but not great. it was a good value, but the food wasn't anything real special. the pastries and desserts are better than the breakfast! but you definitely won't be upset that you visited this place.

“Breakfast on the terrace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2013

The jam was delicious if you go here for breakfast make sure you get some jam. Omelette tasty and well presented. The bread fresh and the croissant like one you would get in France. Service excellent and really good value.

“Nice place for French food & fresh bakery!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Great service, nice food, big menu and free wifi - prices are normal to non pricy at all.
The only problem i had is that for somehow the place was full of mosquitoes, so make sure you come with a cream against them.
Overall - good!
