Just around the corner from Lille’s impressive Notre-Dame de la Treille cathedral is Joe Tex Café, another of Lille’s great spots for a caffeine fix. Come for a coffee in the cozy back room, filled with comfortable armchairs and, if you’re hungry, try one of the small savory snacks, served all day. This is also a great place to visit if you’re a fan of jazz, soul or funk music; Joe Tex Café hosts special evenings dedicated to different styles of music which are not to be missed, and there are vintage posters and old concert tickets decorating the two rooms.
