Le Potager de Charlotte is a vegan restaurant that serves seasonal and local produce in innovative ways. Their brunch is wholesome and filling, including a choice of coffee, herbal tea, hot chocolate, juices or smoothies. The traditional cooked egg is replaced with sliced avocado, the smooth fruit layered with a delicious helping of hummus and the tang of turmeric. This is followed by a course of chickpea and rice pancake with cashew cream – an ingenious vegan use of cashew nuts to create a dairy-free alternative to cream. It’s dappled in herbs, and topped with espelette pepper. As if that wasn’t enough, there’s still the granola, hazelnuts, almond, buckwheat choice to follow, before finishing off with agave nectar, cashew vanilla cinnamon cream or coconut whipped cream. Brunch is only served on Sundays from 11am to 3pm, priced at €29.
