Since its opening in 1930 – making it one of the oldest cafes in Reims – until the present day, the Café du Palais has been entertaining patrons in its historic city center establishment. The family-run bistro has a wide selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks, meals and delicious desserts. These can all be enjoyed under the spectacular art-deco, stained-glass ceiling. While you’re there, be sure to admire the eclectic photos, paintings and various figurines that adorn the interior. It is as much a curiosity shop as it is a cafe.

The Lion de Belfort in the very heart of Reims should be on everybody’s to-do list when in this northern French city. With opening hours from early in the morning until, well, early the next morning, there’s really no excuse not to visit. Le Lion de Belfort has many faces, serving everything from breakfast and brunch to lunch and dinner. Its prime location means that it’s a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee at any time of the day.
