Take a simple entrecôte and you'll be positively surprised. it still beats the restaurants in rue de buci by far.

The title kind of says it all. Great location for people watching, sit at the terrace, kick back, have a drink and watch the French go by. Location is great, the cocktails are OK at best so stick to wine.

I stopped here to get a sandwich and crepe. The crepe was greasy and rubbery. Worst food I had in Paris. My husband's sandwich made him sick and we had to rush back to the hotel. Total bummer.

€6 for a small bottle of sparkling water, rip off! Nice to sit outside in the sun people watching on a Sunday. Didn't venture inside. Nicer places nearby.

This is exactly why Paris has a bad reputation. Rude and aggressive waiters, crazy expensive price (29euros for a double gin tonic which was actually 2cl more than a normal one) and all these for a poor place. There are much better places to go in the area...

The place is well situated ( across Mabillon metro station ) on Blv. Saint Germaine , but this is its only +. Inside everything looks old and used and the prices are pretty high in my opinion ( aprox 20 euro the hamburgers and the stake tartar, 9 euro the desserts, 2.5 euro the espresso, 10 euro the beer )....

Cafe Mabillon is open 23/7. And that is huge in Paris. I do not live far, so whenever I need to make calls to California at, lets say 3 am Paris time: I go to Cafe Mabillon, use their free fast Wifi, get a glass of wine and a club sandwich with killer fries, make my calls and answer my... More

Too expensive, service was awful especially when it comes to the payment. We obviously did not spend (waste?) enough money there...

Staying in Saint-Germain-des-Pres

Neighborhood Profile
In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops, ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants. Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine art school and small museums hide in unassuming squares. The neighborhood’s namesake church is the oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented musicians every weekend. The Luxembourg Gardens house the national senate, splendid lawns and flourishing flower beds. Famous faces and bourgeois Parisians frequent Saint Germain accompanied by the students of Rue Saint Guillaume and Rue des Saints-Pères. This is a neighborhood where afternoon people-watching from a café or playing cards in a brasserie are a key part of the daily fabric.
