Le Café de l’Abbaye is the place to go for a drink. People from Marseille meet tourists and enjoy Marseille’s beautiful light. Holding a pastis in one hand and some panisses in the other. You will need to arrive quite early in order to get a table otherwise feel free to do like the regulars namely sitting on top of the low wall to admire the ‘Vieux-Port’ (Old Port) and the Palais du Pharo !
P.S: Do not hesitate to discover the area: le Repaire de la Poissonnerie, le Poulpe, la Relève or l’Ecaillerie.
