Description: "And God ... created the French Riviera"From a small fishing village to a gorgeous resort on the Mediterranean coast, internationally well-known since the '50s, SaintTropez has become the epicenter of the French Riviera and Sénéquier, its cardinal point. The café was founded in 1930 on the harbour and on the village side, the patisserie which was established in 1887 is still there, located at the “Place Aux Herbes”.When the first artists, writers and actors landed on the peninsula of Saint-Tropez in the late 19th century, the Sénéquier family was already sharing their ancestral recipes: White nougat, tart tropézienne and candied fruits. The large red terrace with its splendid view over the harbor came much later, as a "Tea Room" at first, a frame for the homemade pastries and sweets, and then, as "Le Café Sénéquier", a privileged observatory of the "Nouvelle Vague” (an art movement in French cinema from 1956 to 1963) and an eternal scene of the French Riviera.Mediterranean RedSome 125 years have passed and Sénéquier remains faithful to its family traditon and Mediterranean values ​​such as authenticity, quality, pleasure and friendliness.On the red terrace of this famous "Red Sénéquier", like nowhere else, enjoy the sun, the heat, the food, the entertainment... The Mediterranean.

Very disappointed, Yes as others say, a good place to people watch. And some travel writers hail Senequier as where the rich and famous mingle. Maybe so, but not to eat. The atmosphere is nice, great views when eating outside, and I will have to say that the Patisserie inside has some great French pastries. The food was just OK, but overpriced. My wife carries herbal tea with her (she can't handle caffeine), and they charged us 7 Euros, about $10 US, for a small pot
of hot water. Complained but that did no good. Service is very slow, attitude could be better and it took forever to get our check. So be aware. We later walked down the Marina and saw Creperie Bretonne. Great menu with lunch and dinner crepes, and very nice pricing, average 8-10 euros per crepe entrée. Next time we will try that one out. Live and learn. St. Tropez is quaint, charming and beautiful. Our first trip there and hopefully not our last.

Location, location, location. The price of a coffee may be high but you are payng to rent real estate in a perfect spot to people watch opposite some fairly large boats. The service is swift and on a cool October morning the outside deck was well heated

Since the change of owner this place is not well
The new owner is the same owner of Cafe La Palette in Paris, which is a bad place and the most unpleasant servers.
The food is average and the prices are very high
Soda € 7 - € 9 Beer !!
You can go walking in front to see

As always in Saint Tropez we visited the Sénéquier for an early morning Café au lait. While the Price is indeed excessive (7 Euros for a cup), there is just nothing like it to watch people and boats. And the Croissants aux pignons from the bakery are just to die for!
