We've been back to Paris a few times since we first went to Mamie Gateux in 2012, and never been disappointed here (except when they run out of something we love). The expansion into the adjoining space was tastefully done, maintaining the vintage French country...More

Quintessentially French! A lovely cafe that offers typically French lunch dishes: quiche, salads, soups, tartines and pastries. Wine, juice and coffee also served. The restaurant is charming and the food fresh and tasty. A must visit before or after shopping at the nearby Bon Marche....More

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
