Le Grand Cafe du Theatre

This centrally located elegant cafe is adjacent to the National Theater, and is a wonderful retreat from the hustle of the Medina. Le Grand Cafe consistently serves quality food and offers outdoor seating.


Dates, nuts and honey are the three ingredients that feature in most traditional Tunisian desserts. Makroudh and Baklawa are the two most common ones, along with powdered donuts sprinkled with nuts and honey. Seasonal fresh fruit is often served as dessert after a meal, and is well expected when dining out. There is no shortage of European-style pastries and sweets in the Tunisian capital either - small bakeries dot the new part of the city, and French-looking cafes offer all sorts of desserts and pastries such as crepes, croissants and cakes.
