L'Imperiale is the last (and best) of a string of adjacent restaurants located above the Toulouse market. The bustling, family-run, semi-open-air bistro is a joy to be part of with mom and daughters scampering from table to table with a variety of interesting plates such as vegetable stuffed mushrooms and salmon tartare. But you are really here for their renowned cassoulet. There is a lot to like about this unique version including creamy beans and rich broth, sumptuous duck confit and two delicious Toulouse sausages. The topping is a layer of bread crumbs which is distinctive. The only criticism might be that I wish instead of the juicy sliced pork that they used crunchy pork belly like L"Auberge des Lices.
