From 22 June, the rooftop of Galeries Lafayette, in central Perpignan will once more be a place of refreshment.
From 9.30 to 19.30 every day except Sunday, the rooftop café will be serving simple food and drinks, including breakfast and light lunches.
Could be a good place to meet friends as they will have deck chairs to lounge in and you are welcome just to have a coffee and stay as long as you want.
The real draw however is the spectacular view over the roofs of Perpignan, with the Canigou, the Albères and the Corbières on the horizon.
Go on a nice day, though, as the roof terrace is almost entirely open to the elements.
