The cafe was near our rental, so we had breakfast and coffee here frequently during our stay. We also had lunch and dinner. It's always pleasantly humming, but not frenetic. Food and coffee are solid. We didn't get a chance to try the eggs benedict but they looked awfully good.

We happened upon this lovely cafe during our stay in the Marais district. The food was delicious and the waiter was very good. I had a great chicken dish and my companion loved her salmon which was cooked exactly how she likes it. Happy to recommend this place - and you can "like" them on Facebook!

Good food, we were there on a Sunday so my boyfriend had their brunch which was very popular. I had snails and fresh bread. The ice cream desserts were delicious. It was a very nice little cafe with a good atmosphere.

Had a great lunch here on a busy saturday in the Marais. The weather was amazing for November and there were lots of beautiful people to look at as they walked past our table. The food itself did not disappoint either. Lots of people seemed to be ordering the tartar which was very very good. Not bad priced at 17... More

My husband and I had lunch here with someone who comes here all the time and with whom we had some business to discuss. In fact, she wanted to try one of the specials--tandoori chicken with pasta--but asked if it could be made without the pasta and with haricots vert (green beans) instead. They agreed to prepare it that way,... More

From the outside this place looks like any other Parisian cafe but once inside the staff were so friendly and helpfull, as our grasp on the French language was minimal. They offered suggestions and descriptions of various dishes. Service was quick and the food we chose was delicious. And to top it off it wasn't that expensive - three main... More

I know you're not supposed to go the Marais (or France for that matter) to eat burgers / spend a lot of money doing it - but this burger was out of this world. 80% of enjoyment comes from eating this delicious thing out on the beautifully paved streets of le Marais - the remainging 20% of it comes from...

We stumbled upon Cafe Charlot during our recent trip and we loved it so much we went there again. While walking The Marais on our first or second day in Paris, my wife and I were ready for some lunch and as there are so many places in which to eat we used the old saying 'if it's busy, it... More

Cafe Charlot is great for people watching. Its a place to see and be seen in the trendy Marais. The food is nice, but standard bistro fare… The plat du jour can sometimes surprise but the evening menu is small and standard, however its not really the food you come for..

The perfect Parisian cafe - right in the middle of one of the coolest districts. During the day, a great place to watch the world go by. We had a relaxed lunch with a delicious bottle of rose, a fabulous cheese plate, crusty bread and of course some frites. But by night this place has a busy terrace seating area... More
