I have dashed in and out of this neighborhood bistro for many years...from petijeuner with a friend or two to Sunday lunch to a late afternoon glass of wine with some fresh oysters with local friends. This CAFE still has the ambiance of an Old Paris neighborhood bistro.

This busy little place gives great value and friendly service. This was my first breakfast in Paris, and i was pleased with the start to my holiday. We also had a great cheese/ charcuterie late one night. The place gets very busy and families, singles and all are welcome.

We dined here one evening when we were tired and didn't feel like walking far from our hotel Cadran, just down the street. We were pleasantly surprised by the tasty food and great prices. Not much for ambience, but good people watching, too.

When in Paris, this where I eat. The Cafe is located in a lively and lovely street, Rue Cler, witch has a real Paris charm. Oysters, steak and fries, duck and a good wine list. Great food with a descent price!

had a wonderful lunch hear while walking the Rue Cler collecting foods for our Revilllion meal. In our party we had the vegetable quiche, the duck confit, the steak, and the cobb salad - all were great. Excellent bistro food, very friendly service and a lovely atmosphere.

This is a great spot to duck into for lunch while meandering down Rue Cler. While it isn't going to be the best meal of your life, it's not supposed to be. The food is very affordable and of very high quality for the price. The salads are quite large and very satisfying. We were very happy with the service... More
