Bigot is an old patisserie that is located just right next to Chateau d'Amboise in a small town of Amboise along the Loire river. During my visit to Loire Valley, my party and I almost everyday had our breakfast at Bigot. Needless to say how fantastic this place is.

Bigot @ Amboise

simply classic setting

Bigot may not be such a big franchise such as Pierre Herme or Laduree and is still run by family but the quality is of high standard. At its 100 year of birth this year, this should prove enough of its quality. Services are as well splendid, staffs are friendly especially the lady owner, Christiane Mason, who are so lovely and adorable.

pastry choices

I will not go into detail of each piece I tried but the picture should speak for itself well enough. Pastry are nice, Viennoiseries are crisp and yummy, and what I really like was hot chocolate which is smooth and creamy. Well, I highly recommend you to have a chill breakfast or relax afternoon tea at this place if you happen to be around Amboise.
