People come from miles around to have breakfast/brunch or light lunch at Christine's. Situated in the heat of the tiny village of Saignon, Christine's is, truly, the hub of the village. We usually rent a house, with friends, in close proximity to Saignon and someone goes each morning to Christine's to collect the breakfast baguettes and croissants. This is one... More

On a corner, just around the corner from the car park and church. A great range of pastries and cakes to go with your tea, attentive staff, none of your South of France service with a scowl here. Great place to relax after a stroll around this fabulous village.

This was my local "go to" spot for picking up freshly baked croissants and baguettes when staying in Provence recently, along with a latte after a morning run. Our group also enjoyed some of the local tarts - range of savoury and sweet - freshly baked at this tiny storefront in this quaint hilltop village just outside Apt. An ideal... More

it's a nice place to relax, have some cafe or a snack. Bisquits, cakes and the likes are good, the snacks looked and smelled very tempting, friendly service.

Our first stop the next morning after checking into our 10 day rental in the village of Saignon was this place for a baguette, bread, croissants and coffee. The bill came to the astronomical amount of over €30.00! When we got back with our "goodies" we discovered that one of the coffees was made with the same grinds from the... More

This place is a gem and, as far as I could work out, the only shop in Saignon. I work for one of the leading artisan bakeries in England and Chez Christine's bread, tarts and pastries are outstanding. I would even go as far to say that her croissants are the best I've ever had; no mean compliment I can... More

I love Chez Christine. We have been coming to Saignon for quite a number of years and it is always a pleasure to come to this little bakery/cafe. Open all day, a great place for coffee and a pastry in the morning, an omelette or a salad for lunch or and afternoon snack. Sit outside on a warm day or... More

There isn't a lot to choose from in the little town of Saignon, but Chez Christine is convenient (right in the middle) and has enough to have a quick meal and sit down for a drink. Serving a range of baked goods (pizzas, croissants, quiches), with sides of salads. The meals are cheap and tasty.

Set in the middle of the village, this is an appealing lunch spot that serves very fresh food . Both the omelettes and the pastries are very good as is the cappucino. Sit outside and watch the passing parade while soaking up the sun.

Well not quite. One reviewer did not like Christine's. However overwhelmingly the reviews are very positive. We were fortunate enough to visit Saignon a beautiful village. Having read the reviews of Christine's when we found it we decided coffee and pastry had to be done. The coffee was not great but none of the coffee we have had is great... More

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.
