2.0 (me); 5.0 (her) Le Café Cache du 104, 104, rue d’Aubervilles in the 19th, 01.42.05.38.40, closed Mondays, is located in the new Arts-Multipurpose Space in the 19th that used to be the City Funeral building (anciennes Pompes funèbres municipales), see below:
When I entered, the huge center hall had 3 people doing Tai chi and 20 others waiting for the group effort. I found the restaurant (not to open til later this year under the rubric of the Palais de Tokyo folks), the pizza truck and then the cafe, truly hidden with a carte made up of those magnetic letters our grandkids love to spell words with:
The cafe itself is really cool, with neat wall panels of wood:
My ex-co-host at eG arrived and decided to try the "brunch" while I went traditional. She first had a scone with butter and orange marmelade
and then a poached egg with spinach, shredded cabbage and 3 types of smoked fish:
I on the other hand started with their famous (the chefess Delphine Zampetti, studied at the knee of Inaki Aizpitarte) avocado (hard), beet (Aizpitarte's usual nutty idea of fun) and ginger (of which there was no taste) thing.
My main was a Boeuf Guiness, now I've heard of Belgian beered beef, so I thought that'd what it'd be, but this had a sauce that was watery and while the veggies and potatoes were OK, the beef was the worst cut on the planet (no picture, Idon't want to encourage her).
With wine (16 E), tap water, 3 coffees and 1 juice, one coffee and juice having come with her "brunch" our bill was 54.10 E.
Return? Not here but to the real resto, if only to see what's shaking in the art spaces.
