A snack that hit the spot

Yummy toasts with avocado, topped with egg salad and prawns. Enjoyed with two glasses of Kir (Creme de Cassis and Chardonnay). Was a perfect combination for a hot day in Paris.

Go there for a great glass of wine, cold-cut platter and sit on the terrace to look at the people passing by. You feel so relax and delighted that you can stay hours there.

A bit pricey but a very nice lunch. The entrees were delicious and the wine choices expansive for a lunch getaway. We opted for a pastry as well which was also very nice. Outstanding service from the whole crew. I would absolutely go back.

I went with some friends to "Au Sauvignon" in order to have something to drink (around 1pm). It was a sunny day so we wanted to be seated outside. The waiter who welcomed us had no problem with that. The , another one came to take our order and when he saw that we only wanted to drink he precised... More

I reviwed this place in 2012, praising its convivial enviroment and its great fignerfood. Now things have changed with a new management, although in the hands of the same family. Altough keeping its traditional and excellent "casse-croutes", the house now has a much wider array of food, from oysters to hot dishes. Since ever the house has been a partnership... More

We spent a long lunch at this restaurant some years ago and perhaps not surprisingly, were unable to locate it on subsequent visits. We were pleased to find it again while visiting the large Bon Marche department store (its just across the road). This is a very, very cosy street-side restaurant, distinguished by having possibly the smallest toilet in Paris.... More

We didn't want a "meal," do we decided to go to Au Sauvignon for a few glasses of wine and a snack. My husband had foie gras, which he absolutely loved! I had a cheese sandwich, which was my mistake because I'm sure the food would have been better had I ordered differently. We each had three glasses of wine,... More

The Sauvignon's little snacks and sandwiches are very nice and made with very good products. Their wines are good (but expensive) and the service is highly professional. Very pleasant terrace. The ideal place for a snack when watching the busy smart croud passing by. The only thing is that one is too often surprised by the bill. At the end,... More

Very good place to experience "charcuterie" (pâtés or sausages, I liked the "andouille" and the "saucisse sèche") and cheese (saint-mercellin, for example) with a glass of wine as typical as what you are eating ; I liked the pouilly-fumé and the quincy ; a bit cramped, not cheap, but worth trying. And, if I may say so, unmistakably French.

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.
