Marseille’s Old Port, or Vieux Port, is a small area of France’s second city but it is packed with bars, cafés and restaurants, many of which offer brunch options. The picturesque area offers stunning views of the harbor, the Mediterranean and, in the other direction, the Notre-Dame de la Garde basilica. Visit any of the cafés and restaurants listed below and sample their breakfast options for a pretty spectacular start to any day.
Situated a couple of streets east from the Old Port itself, Longchamp Palace is worth rooting out if you’re after a great Sunday brunch in a stylish, art-deco environment. The breakfast includes a mixed savory dish as well as a self-service buffet comprising a number of carefully chosen seasonal dishes. The skilled chefs have created a mouth-watering selection of sweet and savory plates with a tasty blend of flavors that change along with the seasons. Come back in the evening when Longchamp Palace is transformed into one of Marseille’s trendiest and most popular bars.

For a great breakfast any day of the week head to Le Comptoir Dugommier, just a short walk away from the Old Port proper. The café opens early and serves breakfast until midday so it is perfect for early and late risers alike. The food is simple but flavorsome and they use fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced locally. The set breakfast menu in particular, consisting of tea or coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice and croissants is great value for money. Sit out on the terrace on sunny mornings for a more than agreeable start to the day, or inside the vintage-inspired café when the temperatures drop.
