Located on Rue du Pas Saint Georges on the eastern side of the main shopping area, La Fabrique Pains et Bricoles does not have any large signage. After you find the shop, there is a menu on the side of the building.
They also have a number of pastries, breads, and cakes. As you can see, going around 6pm doesn’t leave you with so much left. But there was still plenty to choose from.
I couldn’t help myself, so I ordered a tarte au citron (as well as a croissant and a chocolatine). Don’t worry I didn’t eat them all in one sitting!
The tarte au citron was so good and large. Not very tart-like, more like a madeleine with lemon curd and topped with a candied lemon slice. Deliciously tart, the madeleine helped balance the dessert with sweetness.
If you’re in Bordeaux, definitely stop in and pick anything. I’m sure it’ll be great!
