This place is located near the Forum les Halles (big shopping mall). They have outdoor sitting and to my surprise they more tables inside. It is always busy...indicatin that they have good food. I love the breakfast, the bread and everything.

We had two breakfasts in a row at this little shop in Les Halles. Of particular enjoyment for me was the shop-cat who hopped in my lap and snuggled like a baby. But the food was good too!

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
