Toulouse. Decoration, cuisine… Three sisters open a restaurant-tea room with influences from Cadaques

Mediterranean Sea or Atlantic Ocean (or both…), each Toulouse resident undoubtedly has their own holiday memories, such as Proust’s madeleine or the uncontrollable Pavlovian reflex when it comes to defining their summer rest destination. For Albane, Maud and Claire Espezel, the stars land in their eyes when we talk about the station of Cadaques (Spain), in Catalonia, not far from Perpignan and the French border. Abundant sand, magical walks, breathtaking landscape: Cadaquès is their family landmark, full-throttle escape, clean air on all floors.

“Saintes-Scarbes, one of the most beautiful squares in Toulouse”

After leaving their respective jobs – “an office job that did not motivate us”, they say – the three young people from Toulouse, all three trained in commerce, decided to create their own business and pool their strengths. The result ? Since June 2022, they have opened a restaurant which also serves as a tea room on Place Saintes-Scarbes, behind the prefecture. “It’s one of the most beautiful squares in Toulouse,” they enthused in unison.

The Three Sisters instead of Cozy Caffe

With a predisposed name, The Three Sisters, and a 100% Cadaques spirit, faithful to their image and their memories. The photos that adorn the walls, the chic and sober decor reminiscent of local fishermen’s huts, with its dried yellow flowers on the tables and the driftwood recovered on site, customized and installed in suspension… The three dynamic young women put all their energy in this address, which replaces the “Cosy Caffe” restaurant in the area.

Continuous opening

At Les Trois Soeurs, it’s a non-stop day. You can have breakfast before going to the office, lunch (with a menu of salads, soups and sandwiches and a dish + dessert at 16.50 euros), and come in tea room mode for tea until 7 p.m. “People in the neighborhood told us that they were happy to have a café open in the morning, in particular. We’ve had good feedback so far,” says Albane.

The menu changes regularly and hot dishes should arrive quickly.

The three sisters, in character and function, complement each other perfectly. Albania? She manages the room and the service. Clear? She’s posted behind the bar. Maude? His specialty is the preparation of good meals. “With us, everything is homemade and we only work with fresh products,” she says.

Brunch every Sunday

Among the specialties currently being tested, the crumble salad (goat crumble/tomato parmesan), Avocado Flower Toast… and Toast cadaquesof course, based on tuna, crab, shallots, apples and grated egg.

The place offers brunches every Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a price varying from 15 to 23.50 euros.

Boosted by their entourage, now “fulfilled” in this project matured during confinement, the three sisters Albane, Maud and Claire have not finished putting old Toulouse in the colors of Cadaquès.
