Review of Chez Christine

Chez Christine
Ranked #1 of 1 Bakeries in Saignon
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: French
Description: C'est une pâtisserie qui propose quelques tables et permet de manger des plats simples mais très bien garnis et présentés (pizzas, omelettes, salades, etc…). Les desserts sont naturellement "maison" et on y est très bien accueilli. C'est vraiment l'idéal pour manger sur le pouce.

The croissants are dreamy, salads refreshing and tasty, and the quiches are delicious. It’s great to sit and eat or take-away. We get the quiches and salads to go so we can eat poolside at our rental home. Really enjoyable with beautiful medieval town ambiance!

What a lovely cafe - and Christine the owner is hands on with shop. Get there early for everything fresh baked - esp the chocolate croissants - they go quick! Since it the only place in town - I saw a line at 7:30a ( granted, only 3 people in the line - its a pretty small village).

If you are looking for relaxed breakfast, brunch, lunch, snacks or even a light early evening quick meal then Christine's selection of coffee, croissants, pastries, cakes, quiches, omelettes, pizza slices, salads, sorbets and ice creams set in a wonderfully quintessential, peaceful and historic provencale hilltop village courtyard are all you could ever need.

We went there every day for a week. She's been there 18 years and knows what she's doing. Enough said.

Every time we come to the Luberon we rent bikes and explore the area. We use the hill climb to Saignon as a litmus test of our fitness as do many other cyclists it appears!

Whenever we explore we like to refuel with coffee and cake / croissants. The best cake shop in the Luberon has to be La Vie en Rose in Coustellet but whilst their decor and cakes are amazing, they don't make a croissant as nearly as good as Chez Christine which simply has the best croissants in the area. Tap the top of the croissant and you get that click sound. Then pull off the top and it peels off in layers. Splendid!

Their Cafe allongé (espresso with extra water) is top notch as well although we find we need to order 2 each but at EUR 1.50 each it's not a big deal.

And of course if you are having 4 coffees you may as well have 4 croissants!
