Good cafe dining in the interesting town of Forcalquier in the Alpes de Haut Provence. Right on the main square.

We stopped in Forcalquier on the way from the Luberon to Val d'Allos in the French Alps. It was early February, an absolutely gorgeous day, and we were headed off for several days of skiing. I had wanted to visit Forcalquier for some time, and we spent a couple of hours wandering around the town.

But first lunch! We checked out all the possible eating places on the big main square, and settled on the Cafe du Commerce. Although it was February 10th, people were eating at tables out on the square, and we joined them. Charley and I both ordered a three-course set menu (salad, plat du jour and dessert) and Kelly had pasta and dessert. We had a carafe of the house wine and enjoyed the beautiful sunshine. I have great memories of this meal.

We paid 48 for lunch for the three of us.

I definitely encourage a visit to Forcalquier (I want to go back on market day) and the Cafe du Commerce is a decent stopping place for coffee or lunch, particularly if you can sit outside.
