One of my favorite pubs in Caen was a little joint called Cafe Latin. It has an amazing central location (it’s really close to the tram stop Quatrans) and there’s constantly a good amount of people here. They have an amazing outside setup with loads of tables and all of the doors are open so that the patio tables feel like part of the place.
They have amazing Sangria – I suggest ordering it by the liter if there is more than one of you. If you’re feeling adventurous, you can play the Russian Roulette game of ordering their strawberry margarita. I had at least 6, and each one was made differently. Like, different size glasses, different strengths, different decorations, you name it. They were all really good though!
The food was pretty good…but I seem to recall them only offering food at certain times of day. So we didn’t get to eat there more often than not. The bar staff here were always really friendly, too.
