Nicely decorated place in a good location.

Coffee and wine with a friend, stumbled across this wine bar and had ac few drinks there. Venue is very tastily decorated with a red theme. The waiters were attentive and on the ball.

There are countless patios to watch the world go by in Paris, and this place is really no different. The cocktails are fine, the coffee is better, and the menu is exactly what you'll find throughout the city. It's nice, but nothing really special to make it jump out from the crowd.

Spent a couple of hours here on separate evenings, good for both pre and post meal drinks, on a popular street. Good wine (as you would expect). The clientele is a mix of nationalities, however mostly French which speaks volumes in itself. Service good, being prompt and courteous both times. Recommend a visit if you are in the area.

We went for a drink, it was very good experience. The draft beer is fresh, the staff is welcoming, the place is also good to watch sports games.

I liked the atmosphere here. It is a busy street and the people are not completely drunk around you. They seem to be classy. Drinks - my girl had cocktails that were pretty sweet. I had a negroni (no value for money as it was tiny) and then continued with classic whiskeys - seemed overpriced for the amounts they gave.... More

We stopped by there one night, and wound up going the next as well. It was chilly out, but they had an outdoor cafe where it was great for people watching. They also had heaters which they turned on when they saw me attempting to gain warmth when hiking up my sweater. Jimmy the Manager was a super nice guy... More

Café Mabillon became our late night, night cap drinks go to spot. I didn't give it a 5 only because we never tried the food other than just fries. But the wait staff was all very cool, attentive, and super friendly. for drinks, coffee and sitting outside and people watching, great spot.

Cafe Mabillon is just down the street from our hotel. We arrived after over 24 hours of travel and wanted a quick easy meal before getting some sleep. A classic Paris sidewalk cafe. Yes, it was busy and the tables are close together but it's Paris! This is part of the charm. I had the cheesy hamburger and frites. It... More

Their tables spill out onto the sidewalk, making it difficult for waiters, patrons, and passers by. It seemed that their prices were high compared to other places nearby.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
