Love the atmosphere of the old Grand, Belle Epoque cafes in France, but much dislike the prices and poor food choice/quality of some of the ones in Paris.
Wondering if there are any that I'm not yet aware of that are worth visiting around the country.
Looking for the likes of places like Meert in Lille, La Couronne in Rouen, Le Cigale in Nantes or Au Pere Louis in Toulouse (and for that matter Cafe Majestic in Porto) We ate at Le Florida in Toulouse as well, but the quality wasn't quite there. That said, I'd much rather go back there than be gouged by, say, Les Deux Magots again.
Thinking about a trip to the Alsace area in the near future, but also considering Tours or Troyes.
