Where to Eat in Eygalieres a List of Local Restaurants
Unlike the abundant shopping in the heart of Saint Remy de Provence, the village of Eygalieres has only a handful of boutiques. However, what this town lacks in retail opportunities it makes up for in the options for places to eat and drink.
The following list of cafés and restaurants in Eygalieres is a reference guide (you can be the critic). The restaurants are listed in the order they are situated on Rue de la République, running from the top of the street near the church towards the Marie, unless otherwise noted.
