One way to South of France: Cafe Parterre

This cafe will make you save flight tickets to France. The lovely all in stones courtyard in this 150 years old building gives immediatly a French vibes. You can feel you landed in a tiny village of South of France, 19th-century cast iron mirrors french garden furnitures, terracotta pots and a 25-year-old olive tree contribute to that feeling.

And the funny fact is that anything in the cafe, the plate under your tartine, the glasshouse from Belgium, the silver cutlery is for sale. Also on weekend make sure to take home one of those pretty bunch of flowers.

The menu has a small selection of breakfast items – Bircher muesli, avocado with herbs on toast, a breakfast salad with smoked salmon – and tartines (toasted sandwiches) for lunch. The croque monsieur with Dijon mustard, béchamel, gruyère and leg ham is a French classic, but of the other tartines,
Sweet tooth will be delighted, custom-made cake cart, blueberry spelt scones and an apricot and strawberry tart and no to mention any kind of pastries.

If you don't know where to go for your next breakkie or brunch Cafe parterre is the place to be, no bookings are taken so it’s best to get in early.
