A wonderful location is spoilt by woeful clearing of tables, leading to long queues, outrageous pricing and comments like 'is that all?' from waiters. I would say avoid, but there is nowhere else to get a drink at the Musee d'Orsay!

The setting is wonderful; the food average, especially for Paris; and the service, at least from my waiter, was careless and indifferent.

We stopped here for having a couple of drinks and perhaps a pastry after a long day of Paris sightseeing. The cafe seems good and most of the customers seemed to be having a nice time so we came in despite the high prices, as we know you're paying for location not food. Our waiter came and look like he was in a hurry and seemed disappointed that we only had two coffees and a cup of the "special pear ice cream" which touched our curiosity. I felt a bit mistreated so I kept eyes on him, which I shouldn't have done because I noticed how rude he was to everyone else, tossing plates, barely paying attention to people... you probably know the type. He probably was tired, or extremely busy, or whatever. So he brings us our order and half through our not-tasting-of-pear ice cream we discover we actually brought us a Peach Melba (yes, a peach at the bottom gave it away). We decided not to argue and be more uncomfortable in the place and that we should enjoy our break. The waiter still decided to be even more rude by bringing the check without asking if we wanted anything else, actually he brought it, we paid and left and he did not pronounce one single word, not in French, not in English. Not even for saying please type your credit card's code into the machine. This kind of things turn a nice place into the worst memory possible.

It was crowded, but we were served quickly by the sweetest waiter. The sandwich and the wine were both good, as we were really hungry!

Now let me start with the fact they have you over a barrel, you have queued for the museum, if you leave then you cannot get back in. This means you must eat the food they sell. That being said the food was excellent, the salad Nicoise I had was very good. All ingredients were fresh. The range is good. Then there are the eclairs (in 3 flavours!) seriously they are about a foot long.

The setting is also superb, behind a large clock face overlooking the seine.

For a museum cafe it really is a good one.
