“French country charm in the heart of Paris”
Reviewed October 11, 2010

We happened upon this tiny cafe accidentally when an intended destination was closed. The building is a very early stone structure.The crepes are a tasty country variety available with a large array of fresh ingredients. We were provided with small bowls of cider alongside to drink.The food was prepared and served by the owner/chef who had a refreshing sense of humor and was genuinely friendly. He responded cheerily to our rusty French with the best he could do in English, and it made for a memorable Parisian exchange..
When my son asked for a glass of cold milk, he was astonished "This is a first for me!!" and quickly accomodated by going out back to the refrigerator and providing one. (Apparently all he has ever served is warmed milk)
The meal was inexpensive, excellent fare. Sometimes the best memories of a trip are the unexpected finds like this great little cafe, a bit off the beaten path and far enough from the tourist traps to be real.
