It was a good job we were not in a hurry when we called here for lunch. We had to wait 25 minutes after our teas arrived before our lunch was brought to our table. In the cafe's defense, they were very busy. It's clearly...More

Café St Germain opened its doors in 1997. Family run by husband and wife, we take pride in what we do and want all our customers to enjoy what we have to offer! Occupying a double fronted spot on the busy Crystal Palace Parade, we offer both indoor & outdoor brasserie style dining. Our decked terrace [covered & heated in winter months ] is a favourite with many for that extra special alfresco dining, a very popular place for families to enjoy time together! We offer a variety of both Continental & English cuisine, from early morning cooked breakfast and freshly baked pastries to light brunch or full lunch there is something for all to enjoy. We are fully licensed and have many beers, wine and spirits to choose from. Table service by attentive friendly staff in a relaxed setting while you 'Watch the World go by and Chilax'. Owner 'Abbas' takes great pride in his sounds and plays music from all over the world to complete the mood and your dining experience. Many of our customers say they feel like they are in Paris when they dine with us...
