Sitting on the corner outdoors and watching Parisiens bustle by while we dined on wine and cheese was one of the highlights of our trip. The food is average or better, the service spotty, but the location and ambiance were awesome.

It was not very clear what I ordered, I assumed to get the plat du jour, but ended up eating a roast beef which was cooked perfectly.

Our airbnb was a block away, so we found this sweet cafe. Wonderful aperol spritz for happy hour. Caesar salad with fresh chicken is huge portion and very tasty. Atmosphere lovely and Parisian!

Don't go, that's it. The service is the worst ever experienced. The food is so bad, I even thought it was expired.

We were in Paris for 3 days, this bistro/café was only located a short walk from our hotel and we ate breakfast here on a number of the mornings. Great food and friendly staff.

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.

bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
