We tried this cafe for breakfast as it was in front of our hotel, and our hotel breakfast was closed. It was a great experience, breakfast was great, with fresh baguette and croissant, fresh orange juice made in front of us, excellent coffee and people really nice. The guy had customers who broke their cup by accident, dropped their coffee... More

We ended up here for a late dinner as it was right by our hotel and it looked really inviting. And it was. The ambience is very welcoming and almost homely. Our meal was excellent but it was the staff that really impressed - making very welcome suggestions about items on the menu and in particular, the fairly extensive wine... More

The food or the way the staff interacts or the ambience, everything is good and deserves many visits. I went twice in 1 week to the cafe. Pickled herrings or asparagus of the season or try any fish...everything was yummy. They serve bread complimentary and without asking will do refill. The desserts are okay. I would give their menu 5... More

We love this local bistro for the petite dejeneur. Wonderful crusty baguette, coffee, fresh squeezed orange juice. Casual and local. Looks wonderful for lunch and dinner, too.

My colleague took me to the cafe promising good food and the offer was more than my expectations. The food is really tasty and huge portion. I tried dish of the day...it was sour cabbage n fish n every bite was a treat. The desserts are equally inviting and serve great to taste buds. If you are a foodie...this is... More

dined here on our first night in Paris in late July. We were a little worried as we didnt speak enough French but the waitress was excellent and we ended up with a great meal of steak and potatoes - very rustic but excellent flavours! The creme brulee here was the best we experienced in our two week visit in... More

Had a dinner with family at this local cafe near our hotel. Staff brought us a English menu to select from. I asked a question regarding the blackboard and whether it was the specials board. This was lost in translation until a bystander came over to translate. Food was ordered and arrived in an acceptable time. My skirt steak was... More

The lady chef Claire likes to make all the food on site. No pre-cooked industrial stuff here. Relaxed homey atmosphere and tasty dishes.

I loved the interior. For me it looks like a mixture between industrial and modern. Simple, rough tables, plates of all sizes and decorations, kitchen towels instead of the traditional paper napkins. I loved this. We went at lunch time, the place was full so we had to wait a little bit for the order ( but it was ok).... More
