Le Grand Café Napoléon (Ajaccio)

Despite being located on one of the capital's main thoroughfares, Le Grand Café Napoléon is a genuine cafe serving up excellent home-cooked meals in its imperious interior. For cake and dessert or an evening cocktail, take a seat outside and indulge in some people-watching.


Cafe tables spill out onto palm-tree-lined boulevards and squares of the capital, Ajaccio, and aren't tough to find one in most of the island's settlements either. Corsica has a thriving coffee culture, with locals frequently gathering in bars and cafes to savour their coffee or indulge in a late afternoon aperitif.
