Bakery
“Mamie Clafoutis is by far my favourite bakery! They make me blush every time I go in because I love them so much. They have perfected the quiche. J’adore le petit quiche pour une petit déjeuner. The grilled vegetables with goat cheese is like ratatouille in a quiche. C’est magnifique. Thé clafoutis, quiche, baguettes, crossaient, breads, everything is amazing! There is a sitting area above the bakery with wifi in where one can work and eat. I saw a lady with a Tuna sandwich on a baguette with a coffee on a tray last week. I was envious of her as I took my quiche to go. It looked delicious. I have friends who spend their breakfast and/or lunch here while working. I’ve only ever ordered to go but it’s a great place to stay. ”
