All sorts of delicious open sandwiches called Tartines - on toasted crusty bread. Loads of choice - have the green salad on the side too. We loved it! Very reasonable for a lunch or light dinner. Highly recommended for food - coffee poor.

Right on the street side in Avignon, this charming Bistro has lots of style and good food and wine. We enjoyed it so much we ate there several times on our visit to Avignon. Foie Gras with chunky bread, local ham, homemade pickle, or olives...More

Good food but loud environment with slow service. Eat early or some of your choices may have run out.

There are so many good reviews on this one I cannot find anything helpful to add. We had lunch and found the les tartines we tried to be very good and as described. House wine just fine. Not so much on the desserts though, perhaps...More

Créé en Novembre 2007, le bistrot à tartines Ginette et Marcel connait plus de 10 ans d'ouverture. Nous vous proposons des tartines chaudes ou froides (c'est la spécialité), de tailles généreuses, des soupes façon grand-mère, et un grand choix de desserts faits maison. Ne ratez pas ce lieu au décor typique des années 1940-50, typiquement français, avec des musiques d'époques que l'on peut entendre à toute heure de la journée. Le service est assuré Non-stop, du matin au soir, 7 jours sur 7, toute l'année. Cet établissement appartient à un concept familial. Nous avons les mêmes restaurants ailleurs en France, sous le nom de l'Epicerie : - Lyon 2ème 2, rue de la Monnaie - Lyon 8ème 24, cours Albert Thomas - Rennes 2, rue des Fossés - Nantes 6, place Bouffay
