Christel Dhuit has been livening up vegan cuisine at this café with a neo-industrial look (cast iron columns, metal chairs, untreated wood) since 2007! There are no animal proteins during the weekend brunch (€29), that’s always a true treat… The Saturday we went, on the cold buffet: vegetable spring rolls, mushroom croquettes, soybean salad, tomatoes in pesto, various types of hummus and vegetable dips, fresh seaweed tartare, etc. And on the hot buffet: red lentil dhal with rice and poppy seeds, beautiful vegetarian lasagnas made with tempeh and leeks, tasty vegetable tempura… And don’t forget about the desserts either, including a chocolate-orange cake and a spiced carrot cake. During the week, the vegan fare comes in set menus ranging from €15 to €23. And to wash it all down, there’s a beautiful selection of healthy drinks: homemade iced tea, smoking hot Sencha tea, a juice of the day (from €4 to €6.50). À la carte €30-41, brunch €29 (kids’ brunch €14.50). // J.G.
