We sat on the terrace outside, enjoying the beautiful weather. There is a large variety of breakfast choices to choose from. Prices are reasonable and service was very friendly and quick.

I noticed this nice bar in rue des archives because of on the menu there was written gluten free bread. They had the last piece and they laughed at me because i chose that place to eat gluten free saying that it was full of wheat flour. Is it possible? Moreover they came to take the orders 20 minutes after... More

Ordered a granola for wife and a blueberry muffin for me and a tea. Tea arrived after 10/15 with muffin. 30 mins later after we asked twice more for granola it arrived. No apology. Why do parisians five such bad service!

Great breakfast choices...meat, veggie, detox, etc..... We arrived just as the doors opened and it filled up quickly. I walked by at lunchtime and the line was out the door! Speaks to the quality of the food. Service for us was spot on! No complaints. Would go back again if in the area.

It's a MUST! You have to order a plain croissant and a latte!! The croissant is just mind-blowing, and the soft latte coffee was the best I've ever had! I just want to share it with the whole world! Anyway, I also had a "crunola parfait a la framboise" or "raspberry crunola parfait", which was excellent, 100% recommended. I was... More

My friend and I went here to escape the Parisian cold in winter, and were happy with it. We ordered the chilli con carne - generously portioned but the flavor was fairly basic. Had raspberry and lemon tarts for dessert which were perfection! Waitress was very friendly, and we took away some baguettes which were great. A little overpriced maybe... More

If you expect to find the traditional omelette and bacon, American style or British style breakfast do not visit this restaurant... It is for those who want to taste the traditional French style, Quiche Lorraines, Croque Monsieur and madame, croissants, sweets and other specialities... There was also a kind of omelette with eggs, but not as the usual ones, it... More
