Fodor's Review

Cézanne enjoyed his coffee and papers here, as have generations of beau monde, intellectuals, and neighborhood habitués—Churchill, Sartre, Picasso, Delon, Belmondo, and Cocteau among them—since its founding in 1792. Nowadays neither the food nor the coffee are memorable, but 365 days a year you can savor the linen-decked sidewalk tables that look out to the Cours Mirabeau, where the locals often prefer to take a table, considering it to be the place to sit to see and be seen. But if you want to travel back in time to the époque consulaire, sit inside: the gold-ivory interior remains exactly as it was when the café opened.
