The Musée des Beaux-Arts at the Palais Longchamp is one of the must-see attractions in Marseille, but what is perhaps not so obvious is that on Sundays their café has one of the best brunches in the city for an incredibly reasonable price. It takes place every week, and what makes it so remarkable is that visitors never know what to expect, as there is no set menu. Instead, the chefs at this locale decide on a cuisine and center their brunch experience around it, focusing on an Italian, Spanish or Russian menu, with numerous classic and creative delicacies on offer.
