La Cave de L'Ange Gardien & Brasserie le Monge

We arrived in Beaune just a little before 11 am, in time for our wine education and tasting at La Cave de L'Ange Gardien. We spent 2 1/2 hours getting educated about Burgundian wines. We learned about the different areas in Burgundy and then we tasted around 12 wines, including an amazing bottle of Cassis. The class was free and we ended up purchasing a case of wine. They even packed it up in a styrofoam box, which we were able to check in on the flight home. US citizens are allowed to bring home 3 bottles of wine each. We declared the wine and showed it to Customs but they didn't charge any additional duty.

After our class, we were starving and it was nearly 2 pm. There weren't a lot of places still open but we found Brasserie le Monge.

Brasserie le Monge is located at 7 Place Monge.

Croque Monsieur with Green Salad--7.50. Ham sandwich with b├ęchamel sauce and cheese.

Plat du Jour--calf liver--€9.50. This was actually quite good.
