Tucked away in the bustling UTC area is where you’ll find C’est La Vie, a French restaurant and bakery. Take a break from shopping to enjoy freshly prepared meals, from French-roasted coffee and sweet crepes to red wine and boeuf bourguignon. The shaded outdoor dining space allows for ample separation from other diners, and a chance to enjoy the cooling effects of the afternoon sea breeze. Be sure to have your smartphone handy to take your picture next to the towering Eiffel Tower sculpture!
