This is a good Sidewalk cafe. Another thing I like is the service. Also thay are tied tied Le Wilson for having the best onion soup in the World. Finally I could go back.

Many places to stop so make this one. The service is rapid and professional by cafe standards. It's just a stop to regroup but a choice stop and many nearby are not as good.

A beautiful Parisienne cafe. We visited for breakfast and have to say the coffee and croissants were amazing. Very friendly waiters too.

We always have lunch here while wandering the St. Germain area. We receive quality meals and splendid service. Can be very busy during lunch. Will always return.

Quaint café with attentive staff. Food was average but the special diet juices were divine. We stopped off for lunch but would have settled for the fresh juices. Typically old & very French!

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
