Brasserie du Commerce

Cafe in Besançon

Going strong since 1873, the Brasserie du Commerce is the kind of venue where you brood beneath a chandelier-strung high ceiling while nursing a brimming jug of Côtes du Jura. It's stately, quintessentially French, and as good for a quick drink as for brasserie meals like buttered beef steak or pork with forest mushrooms (mains €12 to €20).
