Good place also for lunch. For breakfast or brunch i have given 5 stars in tue past. For lunch only 4. Little dirty tables, not so attentive service. Taste of food was great. Hope they improve for lunch!!!!

The food, the service is first rate, the prices are fair for the extraordinary quality. Their omelettes are the best in CR, truly French style, their French toast is incredible. Their pastries and bread are all great. Plenty of parking.

In my search for buttery, savory, flakey croissants in Costa Rica, so far I have come across 3 all in different regions of the country and Chez Christophe is definitely on the list of real French bakeries, found in the heart of Escazú, Costa Rica....More

We wanted to have a yummy bfast and were quite disappointed!!!! First the service was awful... I think understaffed since not all tables where busy. The eggs Benedict were the daily special, we ordered with salmon. The eggs were over poached very little sauce and...More

We ordered a cinnamon bun with raisins. It melted in our mouth, not too sweet, moist and flaky. Can't wait to try other items in the bakery.

Not a bad stop for a coffee with something sweet or salty to go with it. Coffee is good, the pastry is homemade and made with effort. Worth the money. Price: $10 per meal Recommendation: Chicken Curry Pie

Nice place to have a good talk with a good coffee. Pastries are a must try.If you get by car, finding a parking place might be a little difficult. be patient.
