Cafe de la Table Ronde, Grenoble, Isere, Rhone Alpes
Restaurant of the Month
(2020 : the place to dine in Grenoble!)
Dine where Stendhal, Rousseau, Brel, Brassens, enjoyed coffee
and a bite to eat in Grenoble
This venerable coffee shop - the 2nd oldest in France - "Cafe de la table Ronde" (established in 1739) - is where you can enjoy a good cup of coffee, something stronger, or enjoy dining on what is reputed to be the best gratin dauphinois (sliced potatoes, cooked with milk and Gruyere cheese). The menus are reasonably priced, and the interior decor, and history make the meal all the more interesting. It was in this cafe - the likes of Sarah Bernhardt and more recently Brel, Fernandel, Brassens, Raymond Devos or Léo Ferré came, as well as local Stendhal, and political heavywieghts as Gambetta and Leon Blum. The restaurant cafe also offers Cabaret in le Grenier - music, poetry, songs in the great traditions of French Music.
