We visited this cafe in June 2017 and were very dissapointed by indifferent waiters, whom we had to call 100 times till they finally approached us. We expected the menu to be much bigger and much more interesting, however it had nothing really new or...More

Nice location and the food was good but WOW, very expensive. 59 euros for a grilled cheese and ham sandwich and salmon/asparagus salad, no wine. Most expensive food we ate in Paris. You can do better

It was a nice but very expensive trip. Normal coffee costs around 7.5€. Food is also nice but same expensive. Waiters are overloaded due to amount of tourists visiting this place. Don't expect them to be very friendly

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
