 +== Ice cream ==
 +
 +Soleileïs,​ 9 Rue Doct Fanton, "We chose to try their flavors that won awards, so I had fig and olive oil ice cream. C. had cinnamon and pear. And, honestly, it was the absolute best ice cream either of us have ever had. And, that’s a big statement to make since we are huge ice cream fans, and if you remember back to our honeymoon three years ago, we had at least one gelato a day in Italy."​
 +
 +== Place to eat ==
 +
 +* **L'​atelier Jean-Luc Rabanel**. He won the best chef for 2008 award in the Gault Millau guide. My wife and I ate there two weeks ago and had the meal of a lifetime. 13 courses of fun, delicious, stimulating cuisine made mostly with produce from the local "​potager."​ And at 75 euros, it has one of the best price/​quality ratios of any restaurant in France. Super service, and a minimalist, unpretentious feel (no dressing up required!). The dinner is a much more rewarding experience than the lunch.
 +
 +* **[[http://​www.bistro-acote.com/​ | A Cot]é]**,​ rue de Carmes, on the other hand, was charming. The service was attentive, the food was good, the wine selection was good, and I felt like I received very good value for money. I would go back to A Coté without hesitation, but l'​Atalier would not get me back even if it were free (and the second star to me is irrelevant given the format). (**Richard Liked this one**) ​
