Café le Basile information
Don’t bother looking for a name above this hip student café, framed by expensive designer fashion shops – there isn’t one. Well-worn Formica tables, petrol-blue banquettes and a fine collection of 1950s lights and lampshades keep the sleek crowd out, the retro crowd in. A fabulous find for a hot chocolate or beer, light lunch or flop between lectures.
