Café Gourmand

Cafe in Dijon

You simply couldn't ask for a better backdrop for sipping aperitifs than this sidewalk cafe-restaurant on sprawling place de la Libération, facing the dramatic façade of Dijon's ducal palace. It's especially sweet when the sun catches the terrace full force in late afternoon, and you can watch the comings and goings of tourists, locals, and kids playing in the fountains.
