1 or 2 very basic cafes in the airline terminal. Most GA people avoid them, by using the GA entrance for which you get a code which works for a day or two so you can avoid the airline terminal.

The airports is very good. The only downside is they try to force you on grass. Currently the grass area is fine but in the past it was elsewhere and downright dangerous. There is some process for prebooking hard parking but I never got the details. As mentioned above there is a GA coded gate which is a real help. Landing fee is paid in a hut airside which also saves time.
The city is outstanding and one of the best destinations in France. 10/10 scenic and with some great shopping for the girls :) Highly recommended.
