Very good place to stop by for a little gift or home luxury dessert, as they are happy to wrap your cakes. The lunch is not so good, though... odd little sandwiches, slow service, lots of misunderstandings and waiters running to and fro.

Le Cafe Francais is located close to the colour-street in Stavanger where many tourists choose to go. It has very often a French flag hanging out. If you are looking for it, look for the oil museum and ask your way from there, it is right nearby.

The cafe is like a french cafe, the only one in Stavanger that does this well. On sunny days they set tables outside, which is seldom seen here. If you are a cruise tourist and fancy some French experience, try this. It is simple, but good.

The food is mainly sandwhiches, coffees, tartes, crepes and an assortment of chocolates and pastries. It is a quite good selection to be a Norwegian restaurant. The prices are medium level to high seen from an international perspective, with sandwiches costing approx 10 euros, and coffees 5-6 euros.

This is one of two best sandwich-places in Stavanger and the only one where you will get an international feeling. Highly recommended.

A wide selection of typical French cakes and meals with seating outside set in a pedestrian zone. Food is of high quality, but expensive, especially for a family of four.

School canteen style, not comfortable chairs, too "fluffy" cappuccino, cheap cuttlery. I guess all the workers are French, so the speek mostly English.
But only here you can listen to French radio live while you're in Norway.
