My friend took me there last week for a brunch in the marais after hours of shopping. The menu is simple but really good. I advice you to try their burger.... Also the service was fast and very polite. And if you are lucky, you'll be able to seat outside and enjoy a nice parisien lunch!

We had a Croque Monsieur & Caprese salad with burrata, two coffees and some still water. Bill including tip was 50 euro. Quite pricey. Food was yum. Coffee was pretty terrible, but coffee is often quite terrible in Paris. Service was good, our waiter was genuinely friendly & lovely.

The costs for breakfast was super great value, the croissants were fresh, crunchy and oh so very very good. It's a great start to a day exploring Paris, make sure you don't miss out on breakfast here. If you want to see true Parisian service at it's finest I'd have to say this is one of the places to visit.... More

Staff nice enough, service not the best - most of the waiters were fawning over a couple of pretty American girls a and leaving my family and I on the periphery of their interest; food poor and overpriced for what it is.

A prefectly nice bistro. Above average bistro food, friendly staff, very french. Well worth a visit. A bit pricey comapared to other bistros in the area.

Passed and stopped here for lunch on a sunny June day. Packed, must be food we figures. Yes it was. Spouse had melon-ham salad, I had veal-noodles in amazing mushroom sauce. Brouilly wine to wash it down. Perfect. Great service, perfect atmosphere. Bill was almost 60 Euro for two, a bit pricey, but we would return if we are back... More

Although we had a nice, simple breakfast at Cafe Charlot, the dinner was a disappointment. I had one of the oddest, most unattractive, Caesar salads ever. My friends' food (club sandwich and croque Monsieur) were equally dull. However, my relative said his burger was nice. Great place for a drink, though, as the location is good. Service is slow.

The cafe is filled with people, very lively and has a vibe of community. The service was great and the atmosphere was very inviting. The eggs Benedict were cooked perfectly, but perhaps could have used more seasoning. Overall it was good.

This was our first place we went to, on our first day in Paris (and yes 1st time in Paris) during our 2 week stay in Le Marais. We loved it and went back several times after. The food, the ambiance, the bustle and open air feel is a Great way to soak in Paris. We tried something different every... More
