Best places to go in Aix-en-Provence

  • Coffees

Le Grillon

It looks like a typical Parisian brasserie and it is often really sunny and on the famous ‘Champs Elysées’ of Aix called the Cours Mirabeau.

For breakfast, for lunch, for a coffee or even for dinner this place is really pleasant and relatively cheap for what you expect.

Typical old french brasserie at the top of the Cours Mirabeau, the inside is really beautiful and reflects old times as if you still were in the 19th century.

  • Afternoon tea and snack

Near Aix city hall and the traditional vegetables market, this ‘Patisserie’ is one of the best in Aix. Their creations are original and subtle.

From their ice creams to their crepes or pain au chocolat everything is delicious..

 
Béchard

Béchard is the traditional and older patisserie in Aix. You can find the most remarkable ‘pain au chocolat’ that I ever tried. Everything is pretty, authentic and delicious.

  • Restaurants

La Cantine

Their food is inspired by Corsican cuisine (a french island in the Mediterranean sea near Sardinia) and it is delicious. You can eat salads with a kind of goat cheese, honey, and nuts, salmon risotto or tasty Corsican meats accompanied with really good wine.
