My husband and I stopped here for lunch on a recent tour of the Loire Valley. Delicious looking sandwiches were displayed in an enclosed case. We made our choices and they were warmed up. I had a veggie with mozzarella and H had a chicken...More

Excellent service and not hassled to buy more than a well needed cool drink. Pancakes looked really good but was too full from previous meal to enjoy. Soft drinks and water to take away were very reasonably priced.

Stopped for lunch whilst in Amboise. Reasonable prices for the area . Baguettes were ok but I agree the gallettes were not so good. Friendly service and worth a stop if not wanting a full sit down meal

Luke warm beer, ok service and the worst gallette ever. The gallette was pre made and very dry and cracked, the cheese was not melted. And the waiter forgot the Croque in the oven. Avoid this trap.

The chef tries. Does his own butchering. Greets the regulars. Has a loyal following. He should get a brush-up course in cuisine al la francaise. A giant entre cote was tough and uninspired.
