La Ménagère is a café, cocktail bar, flower shop, homewares emporium, and restaurant all under the same soaring, vaulted roof. All un-plastered pillars, distressed wood, and deliberately rusty metal, it's a gorgeous, shabby-chic space that lures you in from the street. You could start the day here with cappuccino and a sweet croissant at the bar, and hang out until the wee hours with a little surfing (wi-fi is free), shopping, and eating in between. Pre-dinner aperitivo with tapas is popular, and then you can bag a place at the bare wood table that stretches the length of the restaurant and tuck into duck terrine, spaghetti with squid, zucchini and mint, and beef with roasted celeriac and pears.
