PLEASANT PITSTOP IN PARIS

Noisy and busy - just what you want in Paris. Good food, although a limited menu, and good wine all served by helpful staff. No dinners on Sunday nights, but that is France for you (and that is not a complaint!). This was also my favourite stop for a lunchtime beer on my day away from business... read more

Stopped here for breakfast, and it was excellent. Had a ham and cheese omelette, with french bread with jam and butter and a fresh croissant. The croissants came from a boulangerie right across the street. In fact the ones we ordered we saw come over on a tray, and were still hot when they came to the table. Highly recommend.

We normally visit Paris in January for my birthday so when we visited in August it was nice to sit outside. Our waitress was very friendly. My husband had a glass of Bordeaux(€7.00) and I had a carafe of water ( no charge). My husband enjoyed n entrcote steak (€16) and I had confit de canard which came with plenty... More

We arrived in Paris on the day of the city wide music festival and were hard pressed to find a restaurant as they were all packed! This was the only one we could get into that was near our apartment. Since it was so late I had a grilled chicken chicken salad with vegetables that was decent. Service was spotty... More

For anyone near the Eiffel Tower or invalides I would recommend the 10 minute detour to the rue cler. The food was of a great quality, everything that came out looked of a high standard. The menu is varied and the value is good; most meals at lunchtime are 11 euros. If you like burgers I would recommend the burger... More

Typical Paris cafe - bustling, crowded but always comfortable. Everything you could possibly want on the menu and it is all good eating. Great for people watching.

My family & I stopped in for breakfast during our morning visit down Rue Cler. The waitstaff was very nice & very helpful. The food was delicious & the price was right for a cafe as well.

It was late and we were a tired, starved family of six. Although the café was very busy, they welcomed us warmly and found space for us. The staff kindly spoke English or politely responded to my broken French. Great food, for picky kids or adults looking for something beyond the basics. They brought us a carafe of water without...

Le Cafe du Marche is a typical Parisian hangout with a trendy young crowd, especially on the sidewalk tables. Food was OK, portions large, prices right but this is not haute cuisine. If you're near the Ecole Militaire or Invalides, would be nice for lunch or a light dinner. Best choice would be the poached salmon salad.
