The setting of this café is really magnificent: Walls with great mirrors, old lamps and decoration, feeling like a voyage in time. Sadly the furniture is not very much adapted to this, being more functional and the place is too stuffed with seats.

This is a typical French brasserie located at the epicentre of the city. Ideal place to have a small meal or coffee and snacks while enjoying people watching. Ambience is the highlight of this place. you go there to het a feel of the life of this beautiful city and not really to satisfy your culiniary desires¨
