Reviews of interest

Emmanuel Rubin (2014) “Risotto champignons, potimarron, échalotes confites et kale: plus un riz cuisiné qu’un risotto mais pas désagréable. Galette de pomme de terre, épinards, pesto de kale: sans grande finesse. Cake citron-pavot: carré.”

Le Fooding (2013) “Chef américaine convertie au «gluten free, organic, raw et vegan food»: houmous à tartiner, salade de lentilles corail, carotte, basilic, œuf dur et sauce au miel, cake à la courgette et sauce crémeuse au thym, gâteau aux abricots façon crumble, petite madeleine cacao à tremper dans le cappuccino (mousse au lait d’amande, 5 €)…L’assiette n’est peut-être pas toujours au sommet, mais manquerait plus qu’on fasse sa chochotte… C’est déjà bien sympa que ça existe, tout ça!”

Lindsey Tramuta (2013) “American chef Cameil Kaundart swaps refined sugar for agave syrup or non-refined sugar to sweeten up desserts and uses almond or hazelnut milk for all coffee and spiced tea beverages. A rainbow of fresh savory dishes changes regularly and you can expect a hearty range of salty-sweet treats for weekend brunch (that is, if you were wise enough to reserve a spot).”

Emmanuel Rubin (2013) “archétype sans  faux pli de la dînette «Marais»  où, sous le motif d’un décor  rétro-minimaliste, le régime naturopathe (du bio, du veggie,  du sans gluten) se glamourise dans l’instant de recettes  pleines de jugeote.”

Kim Laidlaw (2013) “The daytime cafe has a seasonal, daily-changing menu of mostly vegan dishes, made without dairy and without gluten, such as kale, lentil and tofu salad, or beetroot and alfalfa tart, available in a fixed menu including a starter, main course and dessert for €17. Vitamin-packed fresh juices are made to order and cafe from Coutume is also on the menu for those needing even more of a boost.”
