Can't believe there is only one review for this place. Having lived around the corner it's obvious what an awesome little business this is.
They serve the best Baguettes around, the queues on the Sat and Sun morning are proof of this. The staff are mostly french as are a lot of the customers. Everything they have in the store is fresh and really good value. Don't be put off by any queues, they move pretty fast and it's worth the wait.
My favourite is the Salami and Brie baguette followed by a warmed up quiche. Easy to get hooked.
I am so pleased that we have Chanteroy - or 'the French Bakery' as it is locally known - right by our house. It is a win every time, whether it is for morning croissants (that they sell by the box load at the weekend and that is not an exaggeration!); for a lunchtime baguette sandwich (I recommend the Bayonne Ham with Emmentale); or a cheeky little treat on the way home from work. The food is always super fresh and very good.
Having said all that, the place itself is run by all French staff, who sometimes appear rude (but perhaps that is a cultural thing?) The extremely narrow shop makes for a tense and somewhat claustrophobic queueing experience, but it is well worth the wait. Other minor annoyance is that they open at 8am each day, which cuts out much of the morning business crowd.
All in all, it is genuine French baked goods, at painfully cheap prices, in a quaint little shop.
yUM YUM YUM!! Family run deli serving very good value for money french loaf sandwiches with your selection of brie salami, emental, tuna mayonnaise, chicken mayonnaise and salds, to name but a few fillings.
The sandwichs are £2-£3.50 each and are delicious and huge, enough to fill teh gap. They also sell other french food and also some pastries are tarts. This deli is a few stores down from the station. If you in needof a snack or lunch pop in here. Their food is freshly prepared and just so nice!!
The shop is small so expect to queque (due to its popularity) akwardly till you are served.
The French staff are very freindly and patient as you try to decide from the multitude of fillinsg which to have.
Do yourslef a favour and stop here one day for a bite to eat.
No sit down dining offered only take away.
Fantastic authentic little French deli, famous for their unbelievably cheap freshly prepared baguettes.
this deli is the king of delis south of the river. like the first reviewer said it's a take away only but the baguettes are the perfect accompaniment for a stroll through wimbledon park, 5 minutes walk away.
try get there in the mornings when the baguettes are still hot. the smells from this deli will make you froth at the mouth.
apparently a few Chelsea FC players (Drogba, Essien) visit the shop on occasion such is their rep
Its cheap but the food just leaves me speechless. It is so delicious I could only use one word to describe it, stupendous, when I work at Wimbledon every morning I pass by and , honestly, want to order the whole place, but I have to pick a sandwich. Everything is amazing and affordable, Desserts are yummy , sides such as olives incredible, too. I literally cannot praise the place enough and I wish I lived closed to go there every day.
