The entire menu is GF and lactose free. Service was friendly, but a bit slow (our server was fine, but working alone during peak hours). Tried the avocado sweet potato waffles + fried chicken waffles - both were decent, but could've been better. Lemon tart...was nice, coffee was good. The place itself can get quite noisy. Overall a pretty average experience.More

Came to this café to have a brunch with a friend.We had brunch in the room upstairs which has NO light at all, the environment is poorly decorated. 20 minutes later the waitress asked us to switch to another table to put a sit three...people instead (this is not good service). And finally only put two people on it! Seriously! We took the pancakes and asked for scrambled eggs instead of sunny side eggs. The waitress gave us sunny side eggs. Pancakes taste terrible, the batter is crumbing. So nothing good in there, the layout is one of the worse i have ever seen in paris and the pancakes taste really bad. Have brunch in your own house, cheaper, better layout and better food.More

Cafe Mareva, and it’s owner of the same name are my favourites! Mareva is such a great host, making everyone feel at home. From day one the food has been incredible, always with optional extras! The best part is that everything is gluten free and...dairy free (and also delicious) so for intolerants and celiacs this is a dream come true... They also serve great coffee and freshly made juices, so the brunch is ideal.More

Excellent little gluten free cafe. They can be a bit busy but the food is worth the wait. I had an excellent English breakfast pancake (a large gf pancake with bacon and eggs) and it was great. My friend had the gf caramel waffle. Everything...was excellent, the staff are polite, helpful and multilingual and it’s a great atmosphereMore

A great spot for lunch in Paris, especially if you are in need of a gluten free meal. Went here twice during my visit to Paris and ate both a BLT waffle and chicken& waffles. Nice and cozy atmosphere, good food for for good prices,...13€~ for a lunch waffle. The staff is very friendly and I would definitely recommend going here!More

Food and drinks were very good. I ordered iced coffee and apple juice for my kid. Apple juice was freshly squeezed and coffee tastes perfect. The waffle and pancakes were really awesome as well. Waitress was cheerful and very nice. Highly recommended!

Nice place to have a good brunch in Paris with a reasonable price! Really good quality-price! The staff is very nice and the time from ordering to getting the food quite short. I’ll be back for sure!

We had to wait for a long time but it was worth it. My wife can’t eat gluten so she really was enthousiastic about this place. We had the waffle with guacamole and a Citron merengue tart. Could eat it every day! Even if you...Don’t have to eat glutenfree this is a nice place.More

Terrible service, the pancakes are as dry as anything, the juices are tasteless and it doesn’t come cheap.
