The Sunday market at l’Isle sur la Sorgue is a favorite, a chance to wander the streets and canals and peruse and purchase wonderful food and produce, plus local goods and souvenirs.
It’s also a chance to dine at one of the region’s dining gems, Café Fleurs, set adjacent to a small park with a tiny stream burbling by the shaded dining terrace. We requested a table on the terrace, but there is also a shaded terrace upstairs that is equally idyllic, as well as indoor dining when the weather is less than good.
Service and food here leave nothing to be desired. The menu offers a wide array of choices, both for entrées and plats, and we have found all to be excellent. Service is attentive and friendly, with sound advice for choices from the well balanced wine list. When asked to choose between a Gigondas and Vacqueyras rosé, we were given the information we needed to make the selection, which turned out to be spot-on and excellent.
The amusée bouche that started our meal was wonderful, crammed with flavor and setting up our taste buds for our entrées and plats. A steak was done bleu, as ordered, garnished with truffles and porcini mushrooms. Fresh spring vegetables made a perfect accompaniment. The other plat was a St. Pierre, which was moist and flavorful. For dessert, a small cheese plate was perfect, with each cheese perfectly ripened.
We have never been disappointed with a meal here, and look forward to returning for another top-notch dining experience.
