This restaurant stands out amongst others in the area because of its decor, music and young, friendly staff. The food was delicious and there was a diverse menu including substantial fresh salads. It was a busy Friday evening and filled with Parisiennes. It was a perfect antidote for jet lag and we will definitely return.

Had a craving for a Croque Monsieur. Wasn't on the menu but they happily made me one. So much for Parisians being mean to American visitors:) Great onion soup and wine. Thanks !! Good people watching outside as well.

We visited this charming little cafe in the heart of St. Germain conveniently located near our hotel. Sitting outside even in 40 degree weather under an outdoor heater, was pleasant. The American coffee and mint tea was a welcoming delight as we warmed up on a brisk Paris afternoon.

Been here many times for breakfast, lunch and dinner over the years. For the first evening meal with our son's family, wanted to show them non pretentious local hang out. They loved it. Ordered a bottle of Chinon(cab franc) popular in Paris. Onion soup was great and my son loved the Magret de Canard. My wife's salad Nicoise with fresh... More

In Paris for a business meeting, I was staying in a nearby hotel and looked at the options near me ( on TA) the reviews for here looked good and the French Onion Soup received great plaudits. I understand both. A charming and relaxed restaurant, we found the service to be of the highest quality. The French Onion soup was... More

We were in Paris for the weekend and had actually headed for another place near by. But, we did not really fancy the menu on that day and decided to take a chance at this place. And we were glad we did. Our timing was perfect: we place was packed but managed to get the last table. The onion soup... More

I've been here a few times alone and with friends. This place is quaint and friendly. I've never had a bad experience. They play great music too.

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
Saint-Germain-des-Pres
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.
