Lonely Planet review

Catering to Francophiles, foodies and homesick Gauls, this warehouse stocks French imports (wine, cheese, tinned snails etc) and has a patisserie-laden cafe. Yet it’s during the weekend farmers markets that this cigale (cicada) really chirps, with stalls laden with produce and all manner of tasty eats. Three nights a week the space is converted into a quirky bistro, where mains are ordered three days in advance and served in large communal bowls.
