This is a hot spot for drinks and people watching right on the corner of Saint-Germain and Rue de Buci. We did not eat there, great bar spots just inside the door. Quick and friendly service.

Just down the street from the more famous Les Deux Magots and Le Cafe de Flore, Cafe Mabillon is less crowded and a bit less expensive. We sat outside and enjoyed the parade of pedestrians. Excellent club sandwich and very friendly service. Very Parisian very relaxing after a lot of walking.

Just an OK but overpriced breakfast for such a bad service. The waiter, instead of working with clients, was paying attention to girls and dogs passin' by.

This is a wonderful cafe at the end of Boulevard St Germain and near to Pont Neuf. Yes drinks are a bit pricey - but you are paying for the location. Great place to watch the world go by !

Good location, on the corner of Rue St. Germain, but waiter was impatient with us and made us feel like we were being difficult, when asking him for wine recommendations. A shot of Makers Mark was 14 euros, and the Diet Coke was additional 7 euros, for a total of 21 euros for a drink. We won't be going back.

After extensive walking around beautiful Paris, we decided it was time for a beer and a snack. We ordered the "ravioli royale", a very nice serving of small raviolis in a light cream sauce and a generous serving of foie gras. Wow. Pricey? Yes, but what a snack!

After a very long day of exploring Paris, we found this very busy café not far from the Mabillon métro stop. Exhausted and starving, we found two outdoor seats and collapsed. The food was incredibly good. It certainly wasn't Michelin star-worthy, so I wouldn't call it the best cuisine I've ever consumed, but it was definitely the best café/brasserie food... More

Went here for the happy hour cocktails, as we were staying just across the road. I found them good value for Paris, well presented and promptly served. Nice friendly place but nothing to write home about. Didn't eat here. Overall impression was very favourable - the place delivered what it sets out to do. It's not a typical Paris cafe... More

We needed a late night spot to dine after touring the Eiffel Tower at sunset and our concierge suggested we try Mabillon in our neighborhood. I'm guessing that he knew it was one of the few places where the kitchen would still be open late, because otherwise I can't imagine recommending this place to anyone. The food was not very... More
