There are so many people who rely on coffee in the morning to start their days, while there are so many other people who rely on tea to wind down in the night. Regardless of which person you are, cafes are a place where you can find both of these comforting hot beverages. Read our list to discover the best cafes and coffee shops in Aix en Provence, France.

Located along a quiet street in Aix, Mana Espresso is one of the city’s finest coffee shops. Enter the café to discover minimalistic rustic décor with a few pieces of modern furniture. The menu includes everything from a flat white to a matcha latte, so you have quite the range of options to choose from, and no matter what you choose, your drink will be delicious. Mana also has a few tasty breakfast items including toast with avocado and cream cheese, homemade biscotti, cheesecake, and more. This is a popular place for people to catch up on work, so don’t be surprised if you see customers with their head in a book or typing on their laptops. It’s also worth noting that the staff is bilingual in French and English.

This American-style café is located in one of the most popular neighborhoods in Aix. The coffeehouse is contemporary in design, with neutral colors, a flat-screen TV, and a second floor loft. Never too hot or too cold, or too sweet or too bitter, the baristas know how to make your coffee just right. Order your morning cup of jo, along with one of their incredibly delicious breakfast sandwiches. They have tasty pastries, but you can also enjoy a heartier breakfast. Choose your favorite bagel flavor, which they will toast and stuff with cheese, peppers, avocado, meats, and more. Head upstairs for a quieter atmosphere perfect for working, and definitely give the muffins a try.
