Café Cantona

The cosy Café Cantona is located in Windmühlenstraße, a stone's throw from Willhelm-Leuschner-Platz. The cult café takes its name from the legendary French football star Éric Cantona. Dessen Erbe alle Ehre machend, zeigt das Cantona alle großen Fußballspiele auf den Fernsehbildschirmen im Gastraum und ist damit der Perfect! Tummelplatz für alle Sportfans. This is a wonderful place to join in the excitement and cheer on your favourite team over a cool beer.

The Café Cantona is not a typical sports pub. Even non-football fans feel at home here, because the interior is cosy and the menu has more than curry sausage and chips in stock. Spanish tapas, Russian dumplings or Moroccan delicacies are a wonderful treat. Café Cantona's breakfast menu is also excellent and when the weather is fine, the typical Leipzig outdoor sitting area attracts all sun worshippers.
