Beans Marseille: for an English-style breakfast

We start with ‘Beans Marseille’, created by Elodie & Maxime. After living in London for three years, the duo are back in Marseille with a desire to bring a piece of England and share it with the public. Their vision of England translates into a 100% authentic breakfast, with all the classics (the famous beans, i.e. beans, eggs, toast, etc.), offered every day except Tuesday. The icing on the cake is that they also offer an English-style brunch at weekends from 11am. Who knows? After this culinary experience, you might even speak English and consider moving to England, tea included!
