“Classy food at an excellent price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

We stopped by this wonderful restaurant because the smell of fresh bread and cheese was just to good to resist.

The sandwiches are excellent. My girlfriend had one with with a ton of salmon, and I had one with olive oil and goat cheese. Both were very inexpensive for the quality. We had lemonade with anis and it was excellent as well. The general quality of the place and the atmosphere ooze class and tradition.

The bakery is inside and though we didn't try anything, it all smelled really, really good. A very welcome departure from the regular crap on the 5ta Avenida.

“Delish Breakfast/Lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

The bread smells amazing from half a block away. We had toast with honey and granola with yogurt as well as a fantastic little salad with pears and pungent gorgonzola. It's a great change of pace from a week full of ceviche and tacos. Also a big plus is they have wifi to check up on emails which was hard to find elsewhere.

“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.
