Bravo les tartistes! Behind their beloved pastry shop, Fiona and Vincent Leluc have opened up their very first teahouse in a former printing works with fresh vintage décor (marble guéridon tables, sea green armchairs, hundred-year-old mirrors, Versailles hardwood floors and opaline 50s-era light fixtures). Take a dip into a stream of poetically-named waters (Matin au jardin secret, €8 for a teapot) and succumb to the pleasure of a contemporary tart made by Fiona, prepared using a mighty fine shortbread crust, and topped with fig, poached pear or gianduja – to name a few (from €5 to €9 a slice). Or come for lunch: generous plates of potato fritters, two thick slices of melon, antipasto-style zucchini, first-rate tuna belly, a small round of burrata and sliced tomato (€28 with a slice of the cake of your choice and a hot drink); excellent tomato confit tart, with a subtle mix of ricotta and tapenade (€19); and scrambled eggs with truffled ham (€19). To drink, there’s orange blossom orangeade (€8), biodynamic Cheverny blanc from the Domaine des Huards (€7) or a Minervois from the Château Cabezac (€46 a bottle)… Set menus €18 (breakfast), €28 (weekday lunch), €15-19 (teatime) and €38 (brunch on Saturdays and Sundays), à la carte €15-30. // Aïtor Alfonso
