The cherry red awnings and tables facing the yachts lined up in the port have become as much a part of Saint-Tropez as the candy-colored houses.
The café has a long history in the village, opened by a baker
named Aristide Sénéquier in 1889. His small tea room and cake shop became
popular and even stayed open through World War II, until August 15, 1944 when
Germans bombed the port, leveling the café.
Le Sénéquier was
eventually rebuilt, thank goodness, and still remains a village gathering spot that manages to pack people in day and night, with locals and visitors coming to indulge in one of Saint-Tropez’s favorite pastimes—people watching!
