I loved the tartines and the bread and jams were delicious. I even bought a jar of orange jam to take home. There was a large variety of baked goods and the cappuccino was perfect.

We ate at this patissiere / boulangerie a couple of evenings after having a relatively large lunch. The selection of lite fair and house wines still gave us the feel of being in Paris without the burden of a large or formal meal. Bread and pastries were excellent. Limited selection of entries gave us all we needed..

To be called a great pastry shop in France you really have to excel and these folks did! The pain de chocolat's were flaky and hot and they made a berry bowl of wonderfulness with crunchy stuff on top that was out of this world. With my non-existent French skills, I'll never know what it was called! That combined with... More

A place you would think about when planning to have a breakfast or lunch in Paris. The organic products are very tasty, with the marmalade and the fresh bread being the best. Also the omelette was very good.

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
