Le Loir dans la Théière

by tiresomemoi

DecorLe Loir dans la Théière (The dormouse in the teapot) has a gay uncle meets Alice in Wonderland vibe.  The walls are robin’s egg blue and are either plastered with theater posters or whimsically muralled. The tables, chairs, and dishware are lovingly selected flea market finds. Decor aside, what they’re known for is their housemade cakes and tarts. On the Sunday I visited there were 11 scrumptious looking options to choose from. My party choose a tarte au citron meringue and a tarte tatin, both of which were delicious. Our third choice was a dry and only OK spice cake. We also had a tasty pre-desert snack of quiche and coffee. I will definitely go back.

Arrive early or be prepared to wait.

The prix fixe brunch will set you back 22€. Our à la carte meals ended up being about 25€ per person.

No accessible restroom and a 2ish” threshold at the entry. The place is cozy but the staff is lovely and will find a spot that works for a wheelchair.  As stated above, arrive early or be prepared for some thumb twiddling. This is doubly true for wheelchair users as there are two floors and the upper level is not accessible.
