We had lunch here because it seemed to be well populated with locals who work in the vicinity of Galleries Lafayette, and managed to snag a table outside (although inside tables were packed as well). We understood almost immediately why....really good French food combined with an "energizer bunny" waiter. Most French cafes are understaffed, which typically means slow service. Not at Cafe Gallery. The middle-aged waiter serving all of the outside tables managed to keep everyone happy, with food delivered hot. The omelette had large, generous chunks of ham, lots of gruyere cheese in a perfectly assembled final product. The French onion soup was flavorful, hot and filling. A special order of "frites" did not disappoint -- crispy and also generous. Add in a bottle of Vittel and a glass of rose wine, and the total, including taxes and service came to 27 Euros. We were stuffed and happy!
There are thousands of cafes like Cafe Gallery in Paris, but this is definately above average in quality and service.
