Every time I pass by Marseille in the summer I want to stop in this tea room, with its tables outside is a wonderful place for a break . Delicious quiche, homemade cakes with the flavor of the mother's ones and a wide selection of...More

The Cup of Tea is well located, near the Old Port, but far enough away to be less busy. The coffee is very good.

Good service and reasonable prices here. A place to relax and watch the world go by. Pleasant view across the road. The terrace is slightly elevated so you are not staring at parked cars. Liked the quirky music/book decor. Clean loos!

When you've had enough of "croissant" this and "pain" that, stop here for some tea and toast - a nice little terrace, friendly staff and more different types of tea than you can wave a teabag at.

From the name of this place I assumed that it would have an English atmosphere, but it doesn't - it's completely French. They sell quite a lot of French books. Didn't see any English books, but they may have some. The tea and cake were...More
