You might be struck by a sense of déjà vu on entering M’eat Me in Lille’s student area, since the inspiration for the cafe and its decor came from ‘Central Perk’, the all-American coffee shop from the ubiquitous and ever-popular sit-com Friends. Cozy sofas and armchairs are dotted around the replica of the fictional cafe and a huge flat-screen TV endlessly shows re-runs of the show. You’ll also be able to order American inspired goodies, from huge mugs of coffee, savory bagels, sweet donuts and the always delicious dessert of the week, which are all handmade on site with fresh ingredients.
