Find a Vegetarian Lunch in Aix at Le Singe Vert

New to Aix’s dining scene, and therefore new to me, Le Singe Vert presents a stylish terrace, all rattan furniture and fresh flowers, to passers-by at the bottom end of the cours Mirabeau.

Stepping inside from the bustling sunny terrace felt like a quieter, more intimate dining experience which provided a sense of social distancing. Ideal for a leisurely catch-up with friends which was our aim. As a vegetarian, I was resigned to the usual salad. However, I was delighted that the daily specials included a vegetarian plat – navets boules d’or.

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully, it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
