A French-run cafe serving excellent food at great prices in noisy but welcoming surroundings, adorned with objets from the motherland. The fixed lunch (€11.25) changes daily, but keep an eye out for the superior cauliflower cheese and authentically good tarte Tatin. Fuss-free breakfasts run until noon, and there are tapas and xapatas (ciabattas) throughout the day.

Arrive early for a terrace table.
