Citizen Coffee

Restaurant Citizen Coffee in RouenCitizen Coffee (Rouen) - © Citizen Coffee

An industrial cocoon loved by students who come to dip their cannelés, cookies and muffins into espresso or filtered coffee (€1.70 to €3), this coffee shop also has some serious snacks at lunchtime. Straight from the kitchen counter: celery root velouté (€4.50); hearty sandwiches (chicken, Comté, tomatoes and a creamy tarragon spread on a bagel or country bread, from €8.50 to €8.90); and a respectable plate of zucchini-pea-broccoli farfalle (€9.90); a feisty lentil-egg-ricotta-pear-cabbage-hazelnut salad; a beautiful berry cheesecake; soft French toast (€4.50)…. And to really drive it all home: Brooklyn Lager (€4.50 a bottle) or freshly made smoothies (apple-kiwi for €5). Formulas €12 and €15, brunch €22 (Saturday). // G.D.
