Le Samovar Salon de Tisanes

Overall rating: 4.5 stars 4 Reviews
Little teahouse in the back streets of St. Michel, 5-minute walk from the city center. The menu is small, just a few items written on a chalkboard sign, with always a vegan option, and you can ask them to make you something vegan if you don't see it on the menu. The vegan tart du jour comes with a salad and whole-grain bread, cost around €4. A bowl of vegan soup (puree of vegetable) costs around €2. Offers tisanes (herb teas), coffee, and black tea. The ambiance is "funky" but pleasant. It's a cooperative, so you'll find lots of left-leaning reading material (in French) and well-worn, coffeehouse style furniture. Price: Inexpensive more-less

Ate here several times. Good hearty, inexpensive vegetarian and vegan food. The area is worth visiting and on Saturday there is a good food market around the corner.

Pros: Tasty food, inexpensive, friendly staff

I went here to drink a cup of coffee and found that you could work (do dishes, organise papers, etc) for anything on the menu. How cool is that!? The coffee was good. The vibe and the staff were down to earth. Didnt try any food so cant comment but they seem to make everything fresh.

Pros: Work Xchange, Good Vibe, Location

funky cafe with an anarchist's coffeehouse vibe

We (two hungry vegans) were really happy to stumble upon this place on a tiny street in Bordeaux. It's just two blocks from the daily flea market at St. Michel, and they always have a vegan special. The menu is small--maybe five or six items in total, all veg, and generally vegan, including the soup du jour, which you get in a nice, big bowl, and which costs only €2. Expect extremely casual but friendly service, well-worn furniture and minuscule bathroom down a dark hallway in the back. We had the tarte du jour, which was parsnip and carrot. Slightly sweet, but hearty and filling, and "creamy" vegetable soup, which was hot and savory and good to the last drop.

Pros: tasty, cheap, convivial
Cons: def. not "fine dining", waitstaff is very casual (but friendly), might be hard to find
