This cafe is located in the old school house in Vitrac Bourg – up the hill above better known Vitrac Port on the river Dordogne.

Part of the building has become a gallery for paintings produced by one of the owners, and part has tables for inside eating during inclement weather. In the old school yard, under trees, are several tables set up – a lovely place to enjoy a snack, drink or meal. A French version of hopscotch is painted on the yard and there is a badminton net also. Our grandchildren had fun whilst the adults were relaxing.....

The two ladies gave us a warm welcome and produced drinks and food in good time. We all chose savoury gallettes as the main course and followed with a sweet crepe. The choice of fillings for both was excellent.

This is an unusual and attractive location – on a hot summer day the shaded school yard would be perfect to escape the heat.

It was a neat twist for us to discover that the owner of the campsite where we were staying had actually attended that school and sat at the old fashioned desks on display.

If you pass in the area, I highly recommend to stop by and enjoy some freshly made crepes & galettes.

Located about 30min drive from Sarlat, L'Ecole buissonnière is hidden behind the Mairie of Vitrac. There is a big parking right in front of the Mairie, where you can park your car and there is a walk of 2 min to reach the place.

The place is a converted old fashion school into a restaurant and painting workshop & exhibition area. Furnished with old school tables and blackboard. There are about 10 tables inside and 5 tables outside in the school court. Decor is really sweet.

I ordered a galette complete (with egg, cheese and ham) It came very nicely presented and it was very good.

Then a crèpe with marrons and whipped cream and that was a délice!

If you are nice to the owner you'll even leave with bon points!

Highly recommended!

We found this place by a very happy accident. The food was great, the art works were great, and both food and art were at very reasonable prices. We considered it quite a find!

As we were staying just outside of Vitrac ( near Sarlat) we decided to try this little cafe for dinner. Run by to very nice ladies they offer sweet,and savory crepes. All were very good - esp the dessert crepe with fruit and ice cream. Great value!
