“Great spot for breakfast, lunch too”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2014 via mobile

Great location, good service and fair prices. You can't beat the breakfast: cappuccino or tea, croissant and OJ for €5. Lunch was unremarkable but fine in this fun setting.

“Breakfast or lunch...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

Having visited Café Gaby many times over the years it's time to recommend this little café/restaurant right in the heart of beautiful Lourmarin.

The food is simple, the staff always cheerful, and if you just want a cup of coffee (as most cafes in Provence, they do not mind you bringing your own croissants) or a glass or two of the local wine, well whatever takes your fancy, this is a lovely place to sit and people watch! Market day it's buzzing non-stop, lovely place to meet after you've done your shopping...and then all there is to say is...enjoy, go and experience for yourselves... :)

“Pretty good experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

My wife and I came here to have aioli for lunch (salt cod, vegetables, etc. to be dipped in aioli). We sat outside on the patio, and it was a great people-watching spot.

The food was just ok. On the aioli plate, the salt cod was good, and the green beans, carrot, and potatoes were pretty good too. The hard-boiled egg was overcooked (grey yolk). But it was the aioli that was disappointing. I know aioli is supposed to be garlic mayo, but the garlic was just way over-powering.

Service was very good.

“Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 December 2013

The atmosphere here is topped only by the exceptional service. This busy little café became our home away from home when we stayed in Lourmarin. Marc & the rest of the staff made whiling away the hours people-watching a thoroughly pleasurable experience.

“THE place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 October 2013

Early morning sun for petit dejeuner then across the road for lunch time soleil. The most fabulous omelette I have eaten in a long time. Great buzz as its the busiest restaurant in this lovely town. Service a bit slow due to a number of visitors from across the Atlantic noisily arriving en masse. A great place to while away a couple of hours.
