Great place to have a meeting with excellent coffee brewed in Avignon. On top of this the owners are very friendly. A place to visit again in Avignon. Check it out yourself

The French restaurant custom of not opening for dinner before 7 or 8 was driving us to distraction. Virtually every night we'd check TripAdvisor for places we'd like to try only to find them closed at 5:30-6 when we were ready to have our evening meal. We were actually going to go to the grocery and pick up salad fixings... More

Simple good food. The proprietors will do what ever you wish with the dish. Out door seating is on a pedestrian street so it is quiet. It is just off the square of Les Halles. GO there.

We had read about this place on TripAdviser before our visit and sought it out for breakfast one morning. As we were standing looking over the menu on the door, the owner came over and asked if he could help. He led us to the counter and asked if we'd like him to make us an American breakfast. Boy did...

We were in Avignon during the beginning of the crazy busy theatre festival and found this slice of local heaven on a side street. It is a restaurant-tea room. My son (10) and husband and I loved the people who own it. He is a former exec who was travelling too much and his wife is a musician and they... More

During a recent stay in Avignon, my husband and I visited Francoise two times, once for breakfast, once for lunch. We found this charming cafeteria style restaurant to be a great food bargain near Place Pie. Service with a smile, delicious salads, quiches and sandwiches, and low prices abound here.

A good self-service restaurant, with tasty homemade sandwiches and quiches. Well-chosen ingredients (whole grain breads, pear-banana crumble with a pinch of ginger, blueberry-flavored "limonade artisanale" or organic wine by the glass), and reasonable prices. (One complaint: the disposable wooden cutlery, though esthetic, is not that agreeable to eat with.)

Our family comes to the Avignon Theatre Festival every summer, and I bet we eat at least a third of our lunches here, because the food is just so good. Walk up to the counter, order a portion of one of the homemade quiches of the day, or choose the hot meal of the day, or perhaps opt for a... More

We stopped here during our city visit, we've found excellent food and really nice service. It's not a restaurant, you pick the dishes at the counter and take your place; everything seems to be homemade, and probably is. Good ingredients, a reasonable choice and variations, that's all you need for a quick lunch or breakfast. A lovely place.

We must have eaten at Françoise's a few hundred times. It's a self service of the very highest ethical and taste standards. You can eat there, or take away. The products are fresh and organic, the plates are biodegradable, the card is fairly simple but delicious, there are two menus per day, with some variations, and about 30 different highly... More

In the heart of Avignon, Francoise restaurant-tea room is opened from 8:00 am to 9:00 pm from Monday to Saturday, for a full meal on site or to take out with our compostable dishes and for a vintage coffee, a homemade chocolate, a refined tea, it's that simple...!
