The aroma of chocolate coming from behind a cheery red door on Lygon Street will surely draw you in. Once you enter (because you won’t be able to resist), you will find yourself in the fully functioning, chocolate-churning chocolate factory known as Monsieur Truffe’s Atelier. The gallery-style seating plan of the restaurant allows you to get a look at the chocolate-making machines located behind a glass wall. The décor is simple and tastefully understated, with untreated wood and delicate cherry blossoms and bamboo placed here and there.
The breakfast and lunch menus feature dishes made with the freshest ingredients possible – they are actually grown all around you, either on the building roof or in the restaurant’s nearby plot. Many dishes are vegan, vegetarian, or gluten-free, and here, healthy does not mean boring; everything on the menu is delicious. Try their celebrated Croc monsieur, which is stuffed with succulent free-range ham, a generous dose of sauce béchamel, Swiss Gruyere cheese both inside and outside the bread, and braised leeks. It arrives on a wooden board with cornichons and a green salad. Read more
