“L’Auberge des Pellets”

It's right outside the Morogues Woods.

The restaurant is set up within a vintage goat farm. It has a warm and rustic decoration. Every table is set upon antique sewing machines' legs, with a wine press at the center of the place and farming tools hanging above the chimney.

Every single culinary specialty, desserts included, is made with Crottin de Chavignol, the local goat cheese. Mixed salads, duck, trout, beef, potato, artichoke hearts, and pear or cherry clafoutis are just a few of the delicacies available. Main courses and desserts are baked in the oven. For those reticent or with allergies to cheese, the 3-eggs omelette, green lentils from the Berry, and chamorro meat in honey are great alternatives.
