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...!

“High quality ingredients mean delicious food”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

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 freshly-made sandwich from the refrigerator. Add a side salad, a beverage, a coffee, and you have an absolutely delicious lunch. The inside is air conditioned and the tables on the sidewalk are misted with cool water. There is also free wifi. You cannot go wrong.

“Great value for money”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

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.

“How does she do it?”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

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 creative sandwich formulas and about 20 different salads. Don't forget the deserts that are exceptional although not entirely without calories.
How does she do it? That refers to the prices. They are really incredibly advantageous, in general and especially regarding the quality of every ingredient and the creativity of assembly and the freshness of everything. The place is spic and span, of course, and right in the center of Avignon on Place Pie.
