Doing your laundry doesn’t feel like such a chore at this old laundromat in Ciboure, which was transformed into a restaurant with just the right amount of fabric softener by the Neo Zealand born chef Lucy Shaw – who used to work at Cucina Byblos in Saint-Trop’ and Providence in Guéthary. Choose your setting: at breakfast, a quick wash cycle with scones, boiled eggs, bacon buns and granola with yogurt and fresh fruit; or, when noon strikes, opt for bright colors, like the delightful Ossau-Iraty grilled cheese sandwich filled with butternut squash and spiced red onion jam (cloves, cinnamon, star anise) made on bread from a nearby bakery. Not fully convinced yet? The lovely baba au rhum topped with crème diplomate, bathed in a citrus syrup should get the job done – unless you’d prefer some banana bread, a cookie or beetroot-ginger cake, among other sweet treats available all day long. In short, you’ll love washing your dirty laundry in public at this place. // Gérard Roubeix 

FEELING THIRSTY? Plenty of options to build up your strength for the day: a lovely juice of the day (apple, pear, celery and ginger the day we went, at €5 a glass), ginger beer (€4.50) and Azeria coffees (€1.50 to €3.50). 
PRICE: Savory eats €5-8, sweets €3-5.
