My first espresso in Bordeaux was at this place. The dark sombre interior, with a huge tree overhanging purple plush seats and couches, seems like a dark fairy abode.
The menu is tattered newspaper booklets with the offerings taped on the inside. The lunch menu during the week is 11,50 euros, for which you get a tartine of the day, a dessert of the day, and a glass of wine. I've tried the salmon tartine, and it's pretty simple but large enough to last you for the rest of the afternoon. Being a wine bar, you have a wide selection to pick your fancy, and not just the French or European ones, either. Anyone for an Aussie or Chilean, tonight?
I've since learnt that this place is pretty famous for its wines and cocktails. The place is called the 'Other' Little Wood, since there is another, original, place, just nearby. I hear it has a slightly different vibe though.
