Causses - La Fabrique

Causses is a brand new slow-food concept in the hip South Pigalle area, bringing together a food hall, a restaurant and cookery lessons under the motto of sain, savoureux, simple (healthy, tasty, simple).  The large, light and airy corner space houses the food hall, Causse, with its selection of seasonal fruit and veg, cheese, meats, sweets, wines and spirits - with an accent on high quality fare from independant producers.

Next door is the smaller lunch spot, Causse La Fabrique, run by the friendly Mathilde, with the same decor of matt black paint, shiny white metro tiles and a hint of industrial-chic, and the same focus on simple, good quality food.

On the menu are a soup of the day (creme of parsnip, white bean), salads, sandwiches (comte cheese, homemade pesto and salad, or ham with mushrooms, €4.90), a dish of the day (chicken, leeks and rice on our visit, €9) and a dessert (we sampled the apple dacquoise, €3.50). There are just 15 seats in total - a large shared table space and a smaller bar to the side - but food is also available to take away. 

 A great place for a spot of casual lunch when you are in the SoPi area.
