L'idylle du Palais: "An unpretentious little cafe and pancake shop" Top 5 Page for this destination Avignon Restaurant Tip by CatherineReichardt

Avignon Restaurants: 39 reviews and 73 photos


Rest assured that there is absolutely no shortage of places to eat in Avignon: but many of the options - particularly along Rue de la Republique and in Place de l'Horloge can be crowded, fairly expensive and somewhat 'samey'.

Which is why this unassuming little creperie just off Place du Palais was such a lovely find. As well as a whole range of savoury and sweet pancakes, it also serves a range of salads and the usual range of cafe style food such as croques messieurs/mesdames. The location is shady and the cafe is located just down the road from a nice series of gift/craft stores, which are tempting to peruse before or after your meal.

We didn't eat here, but we did stop for an icy-cold beverage and what appeared from the kitchen looked very good (it also got an excellent review on TripAdvisor) - in my case, I was ecstatic to find cider on the menu, which was as delicious and frosty as I could have hoped for!
