featured in Cafes & delis Updated

For those with a sweet tooth, head no further than to La Tarte Tropezienne.

Opened in 1955, this has been an institution in Saint Tropez and is also the shop that created the famous Tarte Tropezienne. There are an enormous range of breads, pastries, pizzas, croissants and cakes that won't disappoint.

Worth knowing

In its most basic form, the Tarte Tropezienne is a sponge cake with a cream filling, but the secret recipe created by Alexandre Micka in 1955 mixes two smooth creams and a gourmet brioche to tantalise and tickle the taste buds.
