Unlike other restaurants where waiters in Paris are proud of their profession, here they are not. 2 servers, one standing behind bar with his phone didnt even greet or awknowledge customers entering restaurant. Other one tried to say as less as possible. 10 minutes waiting...More

I can only vouch for the take-out offerings here. When visiting the Orsay I like to grab decent cuppa Joe, (only 1 Euro for an espresso, or lungo/long/tall/Americano/whatever) and on the way out I'll usually get a simple but cheap and tasty sandwich. Nothing fancy,...More

We stopped here for a bite before heading to the Musee d'Orsay (it's located directly behind the museum). The cheeseburger was okay, although overly moist and cooked medium rare (bit of a trend in Paris). The crepe was good and a decent size. The coffee...More

Located next to Musée d'Orsay, it is the ideal place for a bite after the museum. Cuisine is French bistro-style. Service is very friendly and helpful. Great wines.
