A small café/épicerie run by four thirty-somethings (including Pierre-Jean Issalis, from the Ferme de Mayrinhac), Bouillon guarantees quick lunches thanks to its well-made daily menu (lamb sweetbreads pie; celeriac and butternut velouté; stuffed lamb belly; caramel pork; boudin-apple quiche…). After stopping by the bar to place your order, cozy up in one of the cheeky little dining rooms (bouquets of dried flowers, second-hand wooden furniture, a vintage lounge) before digging into: a springtime zucchini-cucumber gazpacho topped with mint and fresh goat cheese; pollack with quinoa and gratin dauphinois prepared with loads of raw milk; and a creamy panna cotta infused with fresh lemon verbena. For €15.50, it gets the job done! And to go? There’s organic sheep’s milk yogurt, La Calmettoise beers, and best of all, nitrate-free charcuterie from the Ferme de Mayrinhac. // Adrien Nouvaire
FEELING THIRSTY? A selection that needs some maturing (according to the owners). In the meantime, there’s an Ayveron Chenin from the Domaine Le Verdus (€4.50 a glass), and Stella Maris, a natural Gard Syrah from Olivier Pichon (€20).
PRICE: Set menus €13.50 to €15.50, sandwiches €6.50.
