Where to Eat in Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer? Olala Cafe

A walk along the promenade at Les Lecques, around the little port and out to sea along the jetty has always been a family favourite, but I’ve always struggled to find a vegetarian lunch after our walk.  It’s a typical French seaside resort with all the menu choices the locals obviously enjoy. Paninis/pizza slices have long been the only alternative.

So I was delighted to come across the Olala Café on a recent visit to Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer. As a vegetarian, it is not always easy to find healthy options for lunch but Olala Café was perfect.

Olala Café
15 Avenue du Port (very close to the tourist information office).
Open daily 10-15h
On Friday and Saturday, they are also open from 18-22h.

Visit Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer

This seaside town is in the Var department close to Toulon, Bandol, and La Ciotat. Saint-Cyr sur-Mer has a marina and sandy beaches. Surrounded by forests and vineyards residents and visitors enjoy Saint-Cyr’s beautiful bay of Lecques. Plage des Lecques stretches for two kilometres the fine sand is popular with families. On the other hand, plage La Madrague has a smaller beach and a boardwalk. Both beaches and the town of Saint-Cyr-sur-Mer are popular day trips from Aix-en-Provence and Marseille. For golfers, the 18-hole Frégate golf course delivers plenty of challenges alongside beautiful coastal views.

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."
