When: 2005

Typical cafe on a busy square. Great place for lunch after the Saturday morning market. Economical, good food, friendly service. One of our favorites!

Directions: On the big square on the west end of Apt.

This cafe is located on the west end of Apt on the Place de la Bouquerie. We were regulars here, always here for lunch after the big Saturday morning market in Apt.

The Cafe du Louvre is a simple, unpretentious place with a sunny, windowed dining room and lots of tables out on the square in warmer weather. We often ordered the plat du jour in a menu combination with an entree and dessert. The plat du jour was often some kind of Provenšal speciality and always good. Otherwise we all had our favorites: an entrecote steak for Charley, the pasta carbonara for Kelly, and the escallope de dinde (a wonderful slice of grilled turkey breast with cream sauce-- yum!) for me. For the entree, I highly recommend the salad with the hot goat cheese. The menu offers a variety of choices and it's very economical. At our last meal we paid 41 euro for the three of us (three courses), including a carafe of house wine and a soft drink.

We really like the husband and wife team who run this place (Gerard and Annie.) I definitely recommend lunch, but confess that I don't know if they are even open for dinner. You can stop here in the morning for coffee, but they may send you to the bakery a few doors down to buy your own croissant.

This is a very busy place after the Saturday market in Apt. If you want to eat lunch here after the market, we strongly recommend that you stop in that morning and make a reservation with the owner.
