Loulou says at the wall: "Start your day with a coffee and a smile!". Nice serving, nice coffee, nice mojito in one of the most beautiful streets in Paris: Boulevard Saint Germain. Strongly recommended.

Went there with family and asked for a club sandwich. Family realized that they changed the french fries for some home made potatoes fries, and they liked it. Seems the restaurant staff listen to customers and they adapt their menu to the taste of its frequenters. Nice to know about that. By the way, staff seems to always be happy,... More

My Fiancé and I were staying right across the road from this place and on our last night decided to try it out. Not typically French food but then it is a diner style set up. Lovely urban decor and really well presented food. Very organised menu with the quality flavours and service to match. I had burger and chips... More

After we had dinner in a couple of amazing bistrots, me and my partner thought "why not a good burger?"... Bad decision! I ordered a BURGER BASQUE asking for NO cheese so NO tomme basque. It arrived of course with tomme basque + another kind of cheese + full of rocket (which wasn't in the menu). It was UNEATABLE. My... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighborhood Profile
Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life, architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The small streets are filled with classical buildings, student bars and lively eateries while the squares are dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which celebrates the great men and women of France. During the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighborhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
