Cafe Gitane’s second locaton is tucked away inside the Jane Hotel. I love coming here on Sunday’s because it’s bright, laid back and chill. The retro feel and diverse menu (couscous, pastries, eggs, sandwiches, pasta, meatballs) makes it a brunch staple.
Avocado Toast- Simply amazing.
Eggs with Salmon- Delicious.
Eggs with Tomato- Light and savory.
Brioche Ice Cream Sandwich- The perfect sweet treat!

Salama is a sexy, cozy and bustling Moroccan den with chic decor located down a narrow alley close to the port. When we walked in it seemed like every table was filled with a group of girls or a couple. So it was GNO/Date Night at Salama! The upbeat vibe and romantic in-door garden feel makes it a must visit when you’re in St Tropez.
Salama hits the spot with Moroccan staples like Tagine and Couscous. The portions are fairly large but you can work some of it off by groovin’ to the eclectic playlist. When Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep” came on everyone went nuts and sang along.
