Food Scene
Great baguettes and croissants and cakes... and well pretty much EVERYTHING. Typical french bakery, so no seating, but great to raid of a morning and take back for breakfast in the apartment (or at the cafes on Place Saint Marc on a Sunday as they don't serve food that day and will happily server you a hot drink to go with your bakery goods.)

A smaller bakery, good classics - croissants, pains chocolats etc Always opt for a "Baguette tradition" - but that's just my recommendation for every bakery ;) My favourite in this bakery for breakfast a "flan au lait" slightly sugary eggy tarte, if you like custard you will like this, plus its the only bakery which makes this local wonder ;) No seating

Big Market every friday, saturday, and sunday. You will find everything from hot street food, to local cheeses, cold meats, fruit veg, antiques, flowers, second hand clothes. TIPS- Friday is the best day for the antiques and curiousites, go early! It's great. Sunday- is special, because all of the cafes surrounding the place don't serve food, so you can sit down at their tables and order hot or cold drinks whilst enjoying the market food you bought. (take your own little knife with you if you can just to make it easier) And if you get a sunny day, you will see the locals taking FULL advantage of the terraces. Great place to people watch ;)

Great range of coffees and teas and cold drinks. Nice people and cosy atmosphere. They make a very good milk based coffee if that's what you have been searching for ;) And they can also sell you coffee for home, just pick your bean, and get them to grind it for the appropriate coffee maker.

Nope! This place is actually called "Bolibol" (Not sure why the map insists that its called Dykemans. But Bolibol is totally recommended. Sometimes its hard to find vegetarian and vegan options, but this place has delicious food for everyone (not just vegetarians). The upstairs seating area is very nice, and the food tastes even better than it looks. Plus its right in the heart of old town so you can take a nice stroll after dinner :)

Hands down our favourite Italian place. Tiny and authentic. Don't miss the in-house-made mozzarella and buffala! Drool! Lunch is an ever changing menu of freshly made pastas and other dishes. Dinner is a big chalk board's worth of delicious options, you'll want to pick one of everything and share it between your table members ;)

A locals spot that’s just around the corner. Simple traditional French food for lunch and dinner. Great for a morning coffee. You can even take a croissant from the bakery next door to enjoy inside this super cute 1930s style space. Very charming

This restaurant was here back when Joan of Arc was burned by the English in the market place just outside It’s windows. So it’s old! ;) It’s also the restaurant where famous American chef Julia Child’s first fell in love with French cuisine. (You must try the sol marnier!) It’s a Michelin star restaurant so it’s pricey, however if you are after an unforgettable traditional French dining experience, book a table here!!

A must visit. This clock tower was once a gate to the city. You can learn all about it in the little museum inside. It is also on the longest and oldest pedestrian street in France. The main cathedral can be seen through the arch which is photo opportunity not to be missed.

Bars, pubs, cafes
Best cocktails in town. Romantic but lively because it’s so small. An atmospheric place, perfect for a cocktail before or after dinner, followed by an evening stroll around the beautiful antiques quarter of the historic centre. Right next to the saint Maclou church which is lit up at night and is very pretty. A short stroll from the apartment.

Casual and lively bar. Outside seating in summer, cozy and bustling in winter. Family run business. The playlist is often ripe with cheesy French favorites. Lots of fun on a busy night, and a charming place for a drink and a chat in the calmer hours.
