We came here before a busy day sight seeing and it did not disappoint. I had a chia bowl and hot chocolqte, both of which were super tasty. The place was nice and relaxed, and the pan au chocolat's are a must.

This cafe is a good option if you're looking for organic food. We had our first brunch in this place and it was great! Very cozy and attentive server. We will definitely come back and order something different.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops
