KURO espresso bar

Hidden in a side street right next to Place de la Comédie, you'll find this quaint little cafe serving one of the best coffees in Bordeaux as well as sandwiches, quiches, soups, and delicious homemade pastries. Special mention to their pecan and coffee cake.


Whether you want to take a break in-between visits or you feel you might have indulged too much in French wine the night before, there is no bad excuse for a coffee break in Bordeaux. Although you will be spoiled for choice with all the beautiful and tasty French pastries on offer, there is one local speciality you shouldn't leave without trying: the canelé, a small pastry flavoured with rum and vanilla with a soft custard centre and a dark caramelized crust.
