A very cute and young feel to this place where we went for dessert. The creme brûlée was still partly cold. Must have been heated from the freezer. It also looked that way. But still a nice place to sit outside (with heating above) and...More

We popped into the Zig Zag for a couple of beers before going for dinner nearby. Good location near the Pantheon and clearly popular. Covered seating outside to watch the world go by or rather gloomy interior. Unintentionally we visited during their "happy hour" which...More

Unbelievably great Irish Coffee. Perhaps the best on the planet. You could float away to heaven of the luxurious creamy cloud of French whipped cream atop this most magnificent work of Parisian art. It even stayed stratified. Sorry Ireland and the Buena Vista SF but...More

Lively bar just North of the Pantheon available for Coffee Drinks or a full blown meal. Plenty of pavement space on a quiet side street in the Latin Quarter. Good choice of beers and friendly no frills staff in attendance.

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendor and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
