We ate here last year, and felt the experience was okay, but nothing special. We tried again this year, and I have to downgrade the café to 3 - or maybe 2.5 - stars. This place was packed to the gills at 10:30 PM on a weeknight, with both locals and tourists, so it can't really be that bad. If... More

We had lunch here on our first day in Paris and enjoyed it so much. It's located at a busy corner and the tables and chairs are very close together so we were glad that we had a late lunch as it was a little less crowded than other times we passed by. The staff accommodated our limited French and... More

Our family gathered here many mornings during our stay in the neighborhood, until it almost became our official headquarters for meeting up to plan our days together. The staff is prompt and courteous, and very kind to people who have limited or no French ability. Breakfast offerings are simple: a baguette, a croissant, juice, coffee, nothing fancy. We were never... More

We had our first meal in Paris here last evening. Camille made us feel right at home. The penne w/ truffle sauce and the fried duck were excellent. Prices were reasonable (36 Euros for dinner for 2 with a glass of wine each and coffee afterwards).

This café/restaurant is located along a busy “pedestrian only” street. The terrace is perfect for people watching and very pleasant on sunny days. The food is well sized and fairly priced by Parisian standards. The beef tartare is amazing. Service is fast and waiters are friendlier than in most other Paris locations.

Stopped here for a snack and a drink and shared a very nice steak tartare. Lovely artisan bread and home made fries. Great spot for relaxing and people watching.

Great outdoor space with lots of friendly people combined with very good prices for good food makes this a new favourite. The service was great and they even gave us English menus just in case we couldn't manage the french. Would certainly go again and recommend my friends when they visit Paris.

Broad selection of items with reasonably priced and good wine list, this is a fine choice in the Rue Cler area. Desserts were varied, menu items diverse and consistently prepared. While not a "foodies" locale, the cafe style promotes an ability to enjoy your meal and linger throughout the evening with your group.

I don't know French. That's great English menu was given, though it is simple. I visited several times and tried different set. Well, never disappointing.

Always eat here when in Paris. Great place to people watch. Inexpensive wine and reasonably priced meals. You can even bring your own baked goods for breakfast and just order coffee.
