“Friendly Haven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2014

I go to this café once a month on average and always leave with a smile on my face. I stock up on Australian favourites when I'm there, like vegemite, tim tams, peanut butter, etc. The little shop at the back also has American and English foods for purchase. The meals are great, tasty and well-priced. My kids always have a little English breakfast of baked beans, scrambled eggs and toast (when we first moved to France, this was the only meal they would finish!). There is a playroom for the kids at the back of the café (bonus!) - you won't find this anywhere else in the middle of Aix. I highly recommend this place, especially to Aussies, NZer's, English and Americans!

“English food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2014

Excellent restaurant-shop that sells English food and goods. They do a "real" English breakfast at very good prices.

“Fun place to go!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

This store is located in town but still a little away from the hustle and bustle which is great for a break from the masses! Kids welcomed here. Very clean impression, nice variety of food offered, catering for different tastes. Very friendly and helpful service. Free Wifi. Highly recommend.

“Great cafe and shop”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

The Provence Shop is a great café to meet with friends for coffee and cake :) The children's playroom is a big bonus as I don't know of any other café like this in Aix centre ville. It's also nice to escape the endless smoked filled cafés around.
