Whether it’s for a start to your day or a break in between, Books & Coffee is the perfect pitstop café. And it’s right down the road from the Grosse Cloche.
Imagine that you’re in Bordeaux and are really craving some Salvadorian coffee, where do you go? Books & Coffee of course. Their New York coffeehouse aesthetic is joined by their wall-to-wall display of teas and coffees from all over the world. If that isn’t enough for a choice of beverages, they also do fresh smoothies and fruit juices. Their food menu puts up stiff competition though, with regular breakfast and lunch items, pastries and chocolates. It makes you wonder if there’s anything this café doesn’t do. Naturally, prices vary because of the range of drinks but you can get a cappuccino for around €3.50 and a smoothie for €5.50. The real showstopper is their Sunday brunch, which has apparently built up a bit of reputation for itself. For €22 per person you get coffee, eggs, pancakes, potatoes, a slice of cake, yoghurt, fresh juice...need I go on? It may be a bit pricey, but the variety means you get bang for your buck.
