funky cafe with an anarchist's coffeehouse vibe
Posted on 04 / 07 / 2011
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.
tasty, cheap, convivial
def. not "fine dining", waitstaff is very casual (but friendly), might be hard to find
