“good espresso , good service”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

its early, you have jet lag - you need an espresso without attitude. If you are nearby the marais, find Carette. You could sit at Cafe Hugo for 10 minutes and they wouldnt notice you. At Carette, the heaters are going the tables are out and wiped down and the double espresso is less than an order away. Staff get on with it. At this hour of the morning you want a coffee not a dissertation.

“Sunday lunch with a view”
Reviewed October 9, 2012 via mobile

We had an early Sunday lunch at Carette on Place des Vosges, during Fashion Week, therefore even more people watching than usual. Carette is - Apart from the Ambroisie of course - the nicest place to eat there. As the terrace was full, we decided to eat inside. What a good choice. we were seated next to the sweets counter, towards the terrace, with the open window we had better views as we were like on a podium. Food was good, the bread outstanding, not to talk about dessert!

“Good Place for Breakfast”
Reviewed September 28, 2012

Beofre teh crowds come for "brunch" or lunch, I often had breakfast here under the arches opposite the Place des Vosges in the Marais.

“For the gourmand gourmet”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

The setting, under the arcades of the Place des Vosges, is perfect, and the service could not be better. This busy cafe-restaurant is well worth considering, in an area that is not short of eating places. But be warned: the dishes tend to be on the gargantuan side! Four of us went for brunch, and on the basis of experience decided to share two helpings of scrambled eggs (a speciality). I think each dish must have been made with half a dozen eggs. They were wonderful eggs, too. If you have any room left at the end of your meal, they serve excellent macaroons.
