If you want to experience something nice and special on your trip I would recommend a tea/coffee and cake at this place. It's down a nice shopping alley, very French and has so many nice looking cakes. However, it is pricey! For two delicious cakes,...More

As Le Valentin is close to the hôtel where we stayed, my wife and I had breakfast there practically every day during our recent trip to Paris. A delightful restaurant, wonderful pastries and other food, and lovely staff. A classic of Paris.

Le Valentin is a fabulous café. The pastries are second to none, and the lunch dishes are also good. These pastries proves why the French bakers are world-class. Le Valentin has a nice atmosphere and situated in the charming passage Jouffroy. Highly recommended.

We were fortunate to find this place on our walks though the passages and arcades of Paris. It is an excellent place to stop for lunch. We enjoyed the best Quiche Lorraine ever! Then enjoyed pastries and coffee. The staff were very patient with our...More

Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle
époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades,
and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here,
modern day workers continue to take advantage of the
legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th
century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and
cinemas sit side by side with French bistros
predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in
