We have a very big crush for Cassonade, a shop and an adorable coffee corner, located a stone’s throw from the Grosse Cloche, rue Saint-James in Bordeaux. Do not hesitate to discover this amazing place if you are in the neighborhood for a walk, a treasure hunt in the city or simply because you want a DELICIOUS vegan canelé.

You can’t miss this pretty green boutique. It literally faces the Grosse Cloche, rue Saint-James. You will, of course, see the canelés in the shop window, but also the fabulous Saint-James which may make you think of calissons, but which in any case are to die for! Canelés AND Saint-James are available in vegan versions! (Unbelievable, right?)

Do you want more? Well, then, you must know that at Cassonade, there is a canelé spread, like a chocolate spread, but with canelés in it … available in a vegan version, which will allow you to dip your canelé in the canelé spread … Ultra decadent, you need this combination in your life !

We really enjoyed …

The princess loved

The princess is very fond of vegan canelés which she can eat in packs of three or four. She also likes to sit on the small benches and drink a hot chocolate with plant-based milk. An ultra gourmet and perfect snack when the weather is a bit grey … which happens quite often in Bordeaux during the winter season!

Her parents liked

We just love this place and the way you are welcomed there, the very aesthetic side of the shop and, of course, being able to finally enjoy canelés which are not only vegan, but above all delicious. We like to order a latte and canelés and sit on the small benches. Ultra cozy, this place makes us want to bask and plan our next adventures.
