Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic service and food for a reasonable price. We came for breakfast and loved it so much we came back for lunch after walking all around the city.

My husband and I found this cafe for breakfast on our first morning during our weeklong stay in Avignon. What a find!! The food was perfectly cooked each day. The couple who run it are so warm and charming. When I say that the whole...experience was very FRENCH, I mean that in the most joyful way. Many of the French patrons in the cafe warmly greeted us, which was fun. They serve food all day. We highly recommend it!More

We were in Avignon a week or two ago and went to the cafe for breakfast I think 4 times - we kept coming back after trying others because the coffee, croissants and juice just seemed to be better quality than the others we tried....The service was quick and efficient - the proprietors are lovely.More

Really nice little cafe just right for a fairly simple lunch. The proprietor speaks really good English and is very friendly. He immediately offered to clarify any menu items we weren’t familiar with. The service was quite prompt and just what we ordered. The food...we had was well-prepared and tasty. The proprietor knows his Americans—guessing that the coffee I wanted was a “cafe longue”. Would love to return for some crepes, freshly made right in front. Fun and relaxing place. So glad we found it!More

This is our favorite cafe in Avignon. It's un by a hardworking young couple, who find time to chat with their clients. You can stop by for a coffee and a crepe or full lunch with wine. It's just at the bottom of Rue des...Marchands in the Zone Pieton (great shopping district), midway between Place de l'Horlage and Les Halles.More

A lovely little restaurant with very accommodating staff. I went here with my parents, and the lady who served us was very friendly, and willing to help out when it came to my mother's wheat allergy. The salad was delicious. Has both outdoor and indoor...seating. Very close to the Papal Palace.More

We were in Avignon for a month and when you stay that long you get extremely familiar with all the restaurants Avignon has to offer. Our hands down favorite was La Cigale Cafe and Bistro. We stopped in numerous times for coffee, breakfast, lunch, along...with late afternoon for creme glacee (ice cream) or Crepes Suzette which was indeed Trey Magnifique as they say. Getting to know and become friends of Delphine, Pierre and their adorable son Damien made the expierence even more memorable. They extend the true meaning of French culture by inviting you into their home. Everything Delphine cooks up will tantalize your tastebuds I promise you. Be sure and say hi from us.More
