Any’Teas is the perfect place for an afternoon tea in a quiet place, very close to Sainte Catherine – Bordeaux’s busiest street. If you like black tea, order a “Manureva” and indulge in one of the tea room’s excellent hand-made patisseries.
Welcome to Koeben, a Scandinavian heaven in the middle of Bordeaux – great for breakfast or lunch. It might get a little busy around lunch time, so it’s better to come in the morning. The owners are very helpful yet discreet at the same time and they really bring a sense of tranquility to the place. Try a Famor to go along with your tea, a home-made Danish cake filled with orange and caramelized almonds.
Bradleys’s Books is an amazing place where you can grab some very original books and drink tea. While you’re there, order a scone or a home-cooked patisserie to make this moment even more enjoyable.
You’re sure to love Juliena tea room – an incredible place in the middle of Les Chartrons neighborhood (they also have another address on Poquelin street). Whether you’re coming for a quick lunch, a snack or a for a catch-up session with your friends, you will be delighted with the quality of the food, the tea and the super yummy patisseries. Everything is handmade and if you’re in Bordeaux for a while, ask about their cooking classes.
It is hard to define l’Espace Temps (the ‘Time Space’ in English), a very atypical venue located in Rue du Loup, a quiet street right in the heart of the city. The wide space can be used to host workshops on personal development, yoga sessions but there is one constant thing: you can stop by for a relaxing break and cup of tea anytime. For a moment, you will really get the impression that time is suspended.
After an afternoon of serious shopping, why don’t you pause and relax for a while in a beautiful and calm environment? The Opéra Patisserie, which is a tea room and a bakery, is the place to go to for a sweet escape in Bordeaux’s center. To enhance your experience, sit upstairs by the window with your drink and enjoy a nice street view.
Another great address to check out, l’Autre Salon de Thé will serve you excellent tea and tasteful pastries in a classic and refined decor. If you had too much food or drink the day before, you should try their detox drinks, which will cleanse your body and keep you hydrated.
You will certainly love Les Petits Mots Bleus‘ concept and bohemian chic atmosphere. This very cozy tea room – only few steps away from Bordeaux’s city hall – is also a library, where you can read one of the books available or do some work peacefully.
Another great address to visit in Les Chartrons neighborhoods. With more than 80 different types of tea, La Vie en Rose is a must-try for tea experts or people who want to discover new tastes. Regular customers like the cordial atmosphere and the delicious home-cooked pastries and dishes.
