Whetting whistles since 1789, this historic cafe is where artists and painters preferred to hang out back in the days when St-Trop was still a sleepy port. Happily, it's clung on to its no-nonsense roots – you’ll find solid dishes such as pot-roasted chicken, mussels and grilled fish on the menu, as well as a lovely interior bar with globe lights and wooden fixtures that still give it a cosy fin-de-siècle vibe. They’ll lend you a set of boules if you want to take on some pétanque players on the square.

Don’t confuse it with the other, more modern cafe (with green awnings) just along the square.
