I used to love Cafe Charlot, but about a year ago they increased the price of the menu and decreased the quality of the food.

The last 2 times I visited I was disappointed with the hamburger (which was one of my favs in Paris unti recently).

It's still a great place to sit and have a cafe and people watch, but the food is now overpriced for just OK quality and taste.

Service is always slow, but it'a always busy.

2 American couples shared an apartment for a week in late October, this local cafe was our first and last cafe. First we sat outside for an afternoon lunch in the warm sunshine, beautiful salad. Last we sat inside for a lovely friday night dinner sheltered from the rain, delicious bread and simple meal with lovely rose wine.

This place is all about setting and location. It is beautifully located in the core of the Marais, in a super cool corner. The décor and ambiance are really cool, super laid back, with a vintage Parisian vibe. The food is good. We went for breakfast and had some good croissant and good pain au chocolat, but nothing really special. The Norwegian Eggs ordered by some friend, though, was quite remarkable. Woudl go back for the fun experience, and not really for the food.

We found this place after giving up on looking for another recommended restaurant. The place was full, but they managed to find us a table and didn't bat an eye at us wheeling a stroller with our 5-month old daughter in. The service was what you would expect in a busy Parisian restaurant. We were seated promptly and served by friendly waiters rushing around us. The food was excellent and we were left to enjoy our wine after our meal without being rushed out of the place. The place was full of locals and with the tables close together and the warm comfortable atmosphere it isn't long before you end up talking to your neighbours.

This is a lovely restaurant we would (and did) return to. The food is good and the atmosphere bustling.

DH and I stopped in on a cold morning while walking through the Marais. Sat down at a sidewalk table under a heat lamp and had the hot chocolate of my dreams. Rich, creamy, full of real chocolate and just enough sugar. It was the perfect chocolate experience and so much better than all the places recommended by our guidebooks. I would go back in a heartbeat! Enjoy!
