La Mandigote

No comments

My husband grew up in the tiny village Moirax in France, born and raised there. It is a quaint little village set atop a hill just outside of Agen. The main and ONLY attraction was L'église Sainte-Marie de Moirax, an almost 1000 yr old church whose construction began in 1080. A gorgeous structure to say the least.


Well move over, we now have a new attraction in town "La Mandigote". La Mandigote is a nice little tea shop/bar with a wide range of drinks offered. While perusing the menu I spotted not only several choices of white and red wine, champagne, and many interesting flavours of tea, but they also had many sodas and even hot chocolate. We ordered a glass of white wine for each of us (there were 6 of us) and it was served with a nice bowl of sliced sausages and another bowl of dates. A nice appero.


The interesting thing about this little bar though, is the fact that it is also a gallery! A free gallery at that. On all the walls throughout the structure hang a variety of paintings and other works of art. There were several sculptures and nice ceramic works also in evidence.


The proprietress has a great interest in the arts and has provided a warm, bright spot for the people of the village to congregate and enjoy some culture while they are at it. I encourage you to drop in and enjoy a glass and soak up some art. It is located on the same square as the church.
