My husband and I visited here for lunch -- we had a reservation. The restaurant was quiet and the waiter was wonderful. I had the LE CLASSIQUE. We were hungry and quickly devoured the generous portion of brioche toast. The grapefruit juice was the most divine beverage I've ever had. My shrimp skewer was scrumptious. The eggs and spring roll... More

We have already bought MF tea (Yunna Imperial, French Breakfast and Casablanca...we just adore French breakfast tea!) from the one located at the Printemps, but later we come across another MF store just across from the Madeleine Church. We went into the store as our friends would also like to get some MF tea. The store was lovely, there was... More

I must admit that the brand stands for the most prestigious tea importers in France. Most teas are delicious, some unique. Also, the setting and the neighborhood are very nice and sophisticated. So be prepared to pay the price. The plate is light, small, elegant, delicious and expensive. The same for the cost of the teapot. Dessert is fine. Looks... More

The desserts are lovely but I came for the tea. I was not disappointed. Paris breakfast tea is the best from Mariage. The boutique is expensive but well worth it. I came home with a lot of beautiful tea varieties and can't wait to visit again when next in Paris.

Best Salmon I ever had! Tea prices are over the top The boutique is insanely expensive, obviously there must be some magic dust in each of their items.

We went on a Sunday for brunch, having decided to go for the total experience, a very pricey choice (around 90 euros). Be aware that they will bring everything you order for the brunch at the same time (cocktails, juices, teas, hot meals, toasts, scones, etc.), which is not the greatest idea because you end up eating and drinking everything...

I've been to the tea store many times, but this was the first time I went to the tea salon for a meal. The food was very good, but not worth what they charge for it. Be careful of the prices for a cup of tea. A tea was recommended by the waiter that ended up being 14 euros.

I am a tea snot. Luckily, my three favorite Tea shops, Maraige Freres, Hediard and Fortnum and Mason are something I can stock up on every several months when I am in Paris and like this, save on the exuberant price of shipping to NY. It is a serious outing for me when I go to 'Maraige'. Yes…sometimes first I'll... More

Glad I stopped by...I purchased French breakfast tea and when I have it at home I think of our Paris trip. Also purchased champagne filled chocolates for friends, the service was great. Great souvenir!
