The busy terrace here often doubles as a stadium for different factions cheering on favorite local pétanque players in the Place des Lices. You, too, can play: just borrow some boules from the friendly bar staff and have your pastis bottle at the ready—you'll need it to properly appreciate the full experience. Hilarious "beginner" pétanque soirees are on tap Saturday nights in spring and summer. The food is not quite as good as the setting but varied (try the
Provençal beef stew or traditional fish soup) and there's a well-priced lunch menu. Open daily from 8 am to 3 am, Le Café always seems packed, so reservations are strongly recommended.
