Cafe Bibent Tips (1)

Cafe Bibent - go for the surroundings: Baroque splendour

This is a great place for people watching and for swanning about in glamorous surroundings - even if you only have a cafe creme and a beer, as we did.

Fantastic plasterwork confections, great mirrors, marble and extraordinary chandeliers: Fin de Siecle meets Art Deco is how I'd describe the interior.

You have a great view over Place du Capitole: coffee and beer don't cost an arm and a leg; the waiters are charming.
