Croustade means "savory pie" in French, and this café knows this Ariégeois specialty better than anything else. La Croustade serves plenty of both sweet and savory versions of its namesake, alongside homemade quiches, pâtés, salads, and desserts. Even the artisan ice cream is produced in southwest France. Lunch menus feature both quiche and croustade prominently, in both traditional flavors like ham, cheese, and onion, and more original fare such as foie gras and chestnut. Though one of three local branches, the Toulouse-based Croustade has just as local a feel as a neighborhood salon de thé. With the accommodating staff speaking both French and English, La Croustade is an inviting spot to support both local products and regional specialties.
