If you are looking for a special cake or handmade chocolates, look no further. Everything is so fresh and the flavours are exquisite. A good place to stop for a hot chocolate or a coffee. Very friendly and helpful staff

When in France you have to try some pastries, and they have a good selection, a place to sit down and enjoy lovely coffee (or tea). Recommend the cafe gourmand, a small selection of five pastries.

I visited it with kids and tool several pastries and coffee. Kids liked them all and I got good espresso with nice smile😄. It had great variety of cakes, chocklets, macarony and icecream. As there were always people to buy for takeaway, it should be popular among local people.

Nice place for a cup of tea and a piece of cake. They also offer savouries - a piece of pizza or quiche (hot). Service is good. Shame it is so small as its sometimes hard to find a table.

In my opinion, La Duchesse Anne serves the best coffee in Saumur. The lunch formule is a fantastic deal, the pizzas and quiches are amazing- then there's the patisserie! The chocolates are just amazing, so if you are looking for a bijou haven for a coffee and snack in Saumur, you won't be disappointed. We haven't in a lot of... More

When we find ourselves in Saumur at lunchtime we invariably enjoy refreshments in the Duchesse Anne. To describe it as a restaurant would be missleading, more accurately it would be described as a Salon de The. Established in1842! it has been in the same family ever since, the latest member taking over in 2010.Their core business is as a Patissier... More

My holiday home is 25 miles away from here and I always call beforehand to order 8 - 10 quiches to take home. The pastry is sublime and I look forward to having a couple of quiches with a coffee every time I visit Saumur. The cakes and chocolates here are also great so get yourself there and enjoy.

I love to drive up to Saumur on a Saturday morning quite early since it is market day and I like to park in the town. After a quick walk around the market to load up on great fruit and veg I then head straight for La Duchesse Anne knowing that they do great coffee. Being a savoury person I... More
