Great prices, friendly service, and delicious food. We ended up going twice and the omelets are wonderful (specifically the Mediterranean one). It's a bit more limited for vegetarians on the dinner menu - and the vegetarian plater is an interesting combination of foods (spring roll,...More

We came for brunch, sat at the windows overlooking the seine and Notre Dame, and had the best meal! Eggs cooked sunny side up, croissants, pastries, jam, yogurt, cappuccino, all was excellent. A rainy deluge came in the middle of our meal, the rain so...More

We went with a group to Cafe Panis. First of all, the views of the Cathedral of Notre Dame were stunning. We ate outside and it was lovely. I had the French onion soup and veal. My friend had tried escargot for the first time....More
