Fodor's Expert Review Simple Simon

$ Avignon British

Since the 1970s, this quaint (there is no other word for it) English tearoom—dark wooden beams, teapots on shelves, a table laden with cakes and pies—has catered to homesick expats and locals, who are intrigued by the pieman's tempting wares and the properly brewed teas served in silver pots. Owned from the beginning by a Frenchwoman whose mother was English, Simple Simon is a real ode to British tradition, with Cornish salad, bacon and eggs, and hot dishes like shepherd's pie, cheese-and-onion crumble tart, or turkey hotpot at lunch. During the theater festival, it's also open for dinner.
