Very simple, original restaurant serving exclusively croque-monsieur, declining a range of say 8 original recipes, all made with high quality ingredients. The owner was so kind and attentive it felt like having lunch at home. Good dessert and coffee in particular. Great with or without...More

My family and I stopped during a nice walk along the canal. Service was very friendly and I ordered l'azteque, which was super tasty. I definitely recommend it for lunch if you are in the area

It doesnt matter what you order all the dishes are delicious! They serve simple Toasted sandwiches but what they fill them with is out of this world perfectly cooked flavoursome fillings. Oh and the French Toast was delicious too!

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
