A bit pricey
La Cigale is much more than just a bakery. It's a restaurant / mini-mart, very interesting, particularly for the culinary side of things. You can have a cappuccino, pastries or freshly made pasta ... a real pleasure. The only drawback is the price, which is above average. We had three cappuccinos and three croissants, and paid about 20 euros ... definitely a place for the rich! La Cigale can be reached by a three-lane highway north of Beirut, in the direction of Byblos and Tripoli.
