It doesnt matter what you order all the dishes are delicious! They serve simple Toasted sandwiches but what they fill them with is out of this world perfectly cooked flavoursome fillings. Oh and the French Toast was delicious too!

The cutest place right along Canal St. Martin! A really nice menu with multiple vegetarian-friendly "croque monsieurs," as well as the traditional ones and some other variations. Nice side dishes, too. And a really friendly staff!

Good options for vegetarians, I had a vegetarian meal and it had a perfect crunch. Meal comes with simple but tasty side salad and crisps.

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
