Where to eat at the ENS

Le "pot": the ens self service cafeteria (see ENS map). It is open from 12pm to 1:30pm.
A full meal (cafeteria food) is about 9 euros. You must buy a meal ticket at the bar which entitles you to a number of points you can spend on various food and drinks items. A display at the cafeteria entrance shows the current hot dishes of the day.

The bar serves the usual drinks and a few snacks as well.
