One of the great treats of our Azay visit. The shop window is a work of art, with a particularly appealing shelf of patisseries: we start at the left hand side and work our way across throughout the week. Nothing looks or tastes anything like this in England. The staff are friendly and patient (it can take some time to... More

This was our 'go too' patisserie while we stayed for a few days at the nearby Hotel Troglododo. Bread and cakes are just superb. Inside are a couple of tables and chairs and it's really nice to sit down and chill out in such a friendy and comfortable place. Lat/Long: N47.26119° E0.46513°

This is the sort of place that one dreams of when planning a holiday in France. Outside it looks like another patisserie however not only are the staff friendly and helpful but their produce is Devine. A real treat to be treasured. Their chocolates and their cakes are excellent and a real treat.

This is a great bakery. It has a wide selection of very tasty traditional bakery items as well as homemade candy. It is a good place to start when putting together a picnic.

Hanging out for a coffee & tea after yet another Chateau visit, this charming little Patissier & Chocolatier was open, it was very busy with customers coming in to pick up orders of cakes & all kinds of goodies, they make an excellent cup of tea, they even sell a small amount of beautiful Japanese tea pots, we tried their...

We've been coming to Au Royal Chocolat for over twenty years and the standard has always been excellent. There is a great choice of cakes and drinks, particularly tea, and this is always a location that my family insists on visiting at least once every holiday.

It looks rather ordinary, but the pastries and extrodinary! Whether you select a delicate chocolate mouse confection or a lemon tartlet, you are in for a real treat! Cramped seating, but worth the visit. Wonderful selection of teas - in Darjeeling variety alone they had four different selections of loose tea.
