Nearly always open. Fine breads and sweets, and very good coffee. There are two smal tables and tre or four chairs. You can have coffee to go but I recommend ta take a seat and slow down a few minutes.
We stopped here for a coffee on our way to Giverny. We bought a filled baguette each, which we had later at lunchtime, but couldn't resist a pastry with our coffee for breakfast. I had an almond croissant which was really really delicious - I...would have loved to have gone back for another one on a daily basis if we had been staying in Vernon!More
We saw the long line of locals getting their evening bread here and decided to check if they had sandwiches, or something for a quick, light lunch before getting a train back to Paris. They had mini quiches, very reasonably priced and super delicious. Perfect...for what we wanted. Besides good bread and quiche, they also had sandwiches, pastries, and lovely cakes, which we didn't try.More
This lovely little patisserie is home to some of the most delicious pastries I've ever tried. They have a lot of variety, so I'm sure you'll find something you like. Don't miss it if you are in Vernon. Or, if you are heading somewhere else,...like Giverny, buy some goods to take with you!More
For those going to visit Monet's garden at Giverny, it will be a mistake to get off the train and get in line immediately for the shuttle bus instead of walking through Vernon's downtown first.
We bought a nice picnic lunch including sandwiches and dessert...at the Rose Boulangerie & Patisserie, as well as other goodies in Vernon's downtown area and Wednesday market before crossing the Seine and walking on the bike/pedestrian path to Giverny. The prices, as expected, are lower than Paris prices, with larger portions. The sandwiches are filled with copious quantity of good quality ingredients. Pastry are on a par, if not better than any Paris patisserie. The macarones, however, are better than any that we have ever tasted, including the well-known brands from Paris. The flavors are intense, and the texture of the cookies have a slight chewiness to it (not just plain soft like most of the macarones), which contrasts nicely with the crunchiness of the shell, as well as the creamy filling. So three different textures in one cookie.
The town of Vernon also has many other nice food shops on Rue St. Jacques (parallel to Rue Albufera, the main street leading to the bridge), including several that sell a wide variety of take out food including wonderful pates and even taboule that should not be missed.More
