Bars and Cafés: Avignon

The best areas of Avignon for bars, cafés and brasseries are the place Crillon (by the porte de l'Oulle on the river), the place des Corps saints (just behind the Tourist Office) and the rue des Teinturiers: try L'Offset in this street, or La Tâche d'Encre.

The line in France between bistros and restaurants is a fluid one and many of these addresses also serve light food, sometimes very good food too, though they're famed for their atmosphere more for their cuisine. Stay tuned for new additions! logo

Autour d'un The, un Voyage, Avignon: courtyardFor a touch of zen in the heart and heat of Avignon, there can be few nicer spots than this serene and elegant tea room in a chapel within the 15th century Petit Palais, just off the crowded city centre.

Cinema Utopia AvignonHidden away at the back of the Palais des Papes, next to Pope Urban V's private garden, the Bistro d'Utopia is a little away from the main tourist drag and one of the coolest bars in Avignon.
