We sat upstairs having cappuccinos as mice ran around our feet. I went downstairs to speak to the manager. He told me he was aware of the mice and said that because the doors are always open from people coming into the cafe, mice come...More

Unfortunately this place is very over rated. Very pricey but poor services. And someone should explain the barista that milk is not cream. ;)

Cafe with a classic ambience. It gets pretty busy but the service seems to be quick anyway. We only had hot chocolate and cake a both things were good. The hot chocolate was the best we found in Paris but it's still not the best...More

Wonderfully authentic feeling Paris cafe. Bustling with a varied upbeat crowd huddled together on the heated terrace in chilly November. The best possible breakfast to start a day/weekend in Paris. Not cheap...but cheap but a real treat. 👍

Slipped in for something sweet and a coffees. Friendly head waiter ran around and found us a table. Took a while to order and get the order out but it was worth it. Much better treatment than the next door neighbor.

20 euro for a starving shrimp salad. Come on, you can walk 100 meters away from the main street and find a restaurant with elegant interior and decent portions.

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
