Coffee Makers

This little gem of a cafe is a favourite for breakfast, casual lunch, or even just a cup of coffee (soy and oat milk available on request). One of the cafe's best attributes is the jovial, welcoming attitude of the staff (that apart from the delicious toasted sandwiches).


When in Lille, do not skip on the city's most sought-after dessert: vanilla waffles served at Méert, Lille's historic and most reputable cafe. There are plenty of places to tuck into a savoury galette, a syrup-drenched crêpe, or even just grab a cup of coffee (some particularly good finds are concentrated around old town's Grand Place). A dessert you will be seeing nearly anywhere you go is "merveilleux", a small, meringue-based cake sprinkled with chocolate shavings. And if you are into cheese, try the city's own "Le Vieux Lille", a gourmet variety with a distinctive smell.
