On the charming Espinosa Way, this small café gets pretty close to the typical neighborhood coffee shop you'd find in Montmartre or the like. French owner is very friendly and he still hasn't started charging SOBE prices. We will return.

Getting together with adult family members meant we needed something seriously hood for brunch before they headed off on their further adventures so we visited the somewhat garishly decorated Folie's cafe. Salads and omelette did the trick - just great.

We were in a bit of a rush to find a spot for dinner because my daughter had a date with friends at 8 pm. We ducked into the Folie's Cafe about 6:45 pm this past Wednesday. It's really more along the lines of a bistro or brasserie than a cafe. It was packed with the pre-show crowd for Zazie,... More

we went for lunch with family and a friend on Bastille Day. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The cafe is very pleasant but was very hot inside with only limited outside tables. There seemed to be an A/C but it was not operating. Except for the crepes suzette which was excellent, we all agree that the food was... More

We are staying just down the road from Folies Cafe and were walk-ins during their busiest pre show time, but were greeted warmly and seated in a great spot almost immediately. What an atmosphere - great music, lighting and local Parisiene crowd. Although we were clearly tourists, we felt welcomed and the waiter and waitress were lovely. A shared starter,... More

They will charge you as much as they can for as little food as possible. Order wine and they will bring you more expensive one. Charge any extra that should be free

Staying in Opera / Bourse

Neighborhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighborhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theaters, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
