“Friendly down to earth nice place in the Latin Quarter”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Frequented this cafe often because the service is good and the food is also very good. Breakfast and light lunches were very tasty. The staff is extra friendly and will go to great lengths to accommodate you. Service is swift and casual. The staff is willing to take to time and effort to offer advice about Paris etc.

“Good place to enjoy the Quartier Latin.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

A lively and pretty place full of young people around where you can sit to have an expensive drink and enjoy the view. It's worth the price for one or two beers maximum. Try it!

“Great atmosphere, good food, friendly service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

This is a typical Parisian brasserie but the food and service were a cut above what we had at other brasseries around town. Our waiter spoke English, was very attentive and friendly, made excellent food and wine recommendations for us. We sat outside with a clear view of the plaza and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.

“Avoid for breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Our last morning in Paris was spoilt by being ripped off here. 14 euros for 2 coffees and one dried croissant is laughable. I have no idea what the other meals are like but there are plenty of choices in this area. Try L'Epoque
