Cafe with character.

We have stopped here over the years and it never fails to delight. Wonderful interior with great staff and a good cafe menu. Very popular with locals. Free wifi is available. Recommended for a coffee or a meal.

We only have one criticism: there isn't live jazz every day. Just our luck to be in Mont Dore between concerts, so we had to content ourselves with the pictures that cover the walls of past jazz legends. We walked by the place several times looking for somewhere that offered a "formule" for lunch, but were attracted by the authentic,... More

After a long walk along the Dordogne river starting from the top next to ski lifts and down to town 4km later this place did the trick. Super nice ladies running this corner café serving hot wine and tasty sweet things. I could go on about the jazz, the pictures on the wall, chandeliers but then someone might take the... More

We had coffee and tea at 10.30 and decided to return for lunch as the service was friendly and alot of locals were in there in the morning. We returned at 11.30am and were told to wait until 12. Definitely worth waiting for. The meal was delicious and the lady serving was very friendly. The atmosphere was delightful. Would definitely... More

On a monday out of tourist season, we got the last table for lunch. All the other customers seemed to be regulars - always a good sign. We had a lovely, and very filling lunch for 3 including wine, coffee and dessert for €50. After our post lunch meeting in Le Mont Dore, a local took us back there for... More

We had lunch here before our day hike in the area. The place was small and has only a few tables but people were willing to wait outside for their turn to eat. When we finally had our dishes, I understood why. The food was rustic and authentic. They were simply excellent. It's budget-friendly, too. The staff were very polite.... More

My family and I lunched here in Mont Dore. We had excellent meals and no fuss was made of us being vegetarian. The portion sizes were excellent and my husband assures me that the red house wine was very satisfactory! My omelette was delicious and the fondu was extra good. All served in a very authentic French atmosphere, very relaxing

"Cafe de Paris" or "Le Petit Paris" in Le Mont-Dore is one of those rare establishments with a truly convivial atmosphere in an authentic and very pleasing setting where service is exceptional, the staff is welcoming and drink and tucker are of a quality not expected at the price. Such rare combination (a Home away from Home) caused us to... More
