Located in Saint Avertin, just outside busy Tours, this quirky set up is gaining quite a reputation—so we advise that you pre-book. Residing on the shores of Lake Rives, their brunch runs from 11 a.m. – 2.00 p.m. and features a great range of sweet treats such as lemon curd, pistachio cake, and homemade scones. However, it is the creative savory fare which we find exciting: parsnip cake, roasted tomatoes, and homemade soups. The menu is all homemade and changes daily. The place itself has a great vibe and communal books and magazines make you feel instantly welcome. On sunny days grab a table on the dappled terrace and enjoy their infamous classic hot chocolate!
