Cafes in Hamada

Cafe Michele

Hamada has lots of good places to eat such as cafés or restaurants. “Café Michele” is popular for its delicious food, drinks and its relaxing atmosphere. It is called a “café” but it also offers French food for lunch and a bar at night. For lunch, “Café Michele” offers daily special menu so we can enjoy different dishes day by day. At night time, it changes to a bar and we can enjoy cocktails, beer and wine. Of course we can have tea or coffee with cakes and ice cream in the afternoon. Also, Café Michele offers many interesting events such as French lessons, English lessons, short live concerts, introducing antique books and so on. Language lessons (English and French) include breakfast. If you are interested in talking to people from overseas or just want to have an informal lesson, why don’t you try this? Also, they sometimes have short live concert. How about enjoying a wine or cocktail with a romantic live music?
