Overpriced. Terrible food. Cheap wine sold as expensive wine.

Bad service. Awful. A ripoff. Period.

Go to la Contrescarpe directly across the circle. MUCH better all the way around.

I can't speak to the negative reviewers' experiences, but we totally enjoyed ours. My wife ordered an excellent gratinee, and I had the smoked salmon Caesar salad, which was generously endowed with salmon. Including a draft beer and a glass of wine, our bill came to 38€, maybe a little pricey, but hey, this is Paris. Oh, and the waiter was very friendly. We would definitely return.

Jet lagged and trying desperately to kick start our metabolisms - and not even sure that we were hungry - we sauntered down la rue du Cardinal Lemoine in search of the Mouffetard market area to stock up on some basics before returning to our rented apartment and an early bed time.
Arriving at the Place de la Conrescarpe, we took refuge in the Cafe Delmas (it was close to 2:30 in the afternoon on a bleak Friday in February.) We were warmly greeted, given a choice of rooms in which to sit (we chose Le Petit Salon) and so well taken care of that we agreed we were hungry, wanted some wine as well, and concluded that there was no better place to be than Paris, looking out over the square, and enjoying a croque monsieur and excellent wine at leisure. Many students and professors were in evidence looking forward to the weekend. For us, it was a perfect re-entry to Paris, with exactly the right pace and good service. The menu is standard - no surprises - and reasonably priced, with good wine selection. Service is very good indeed.

i was looking for something in my bag when the waitress started rearranging the table and chairs ad if i had already left. i told her that i had ordered food about half hour ago and it took another 15-20 min toll she reappeared telling me that the kitchen had run out of the dish i had ordered. my appetite was gone along with the wine that i received next, and which tasted like soap!
the bill was slammed onto my table unasked and before i had finished even half of it. awful service can ruin even the best mood and location!
