If you walk from Sèvres Babylone to St Sulpice, you will find only bad restaurant. This one has the advantage to have a friendly staff and being next to the metro station. It is bad though. Worst piece was a salad that was not fresh...More

We were actually looking for another café whilst stumbling over this cozy café. We ordered a Croissant and a Pain au Chocolat for starters, with coffee and café latte on the side. Then I ordered a Croque Madame, and my girlfriend got a Croque Monsieur....More

Friendly staff, nice ambience and location. My stake was good and so was the cheeseburger but the fries were cold. No choice of vegatables as side in the menu for stales over fries. Complimentary water and sauces for the burger.

We went for quick lunch and asked for a club sandwich. The sandwich was frozen. The tomatoes were literally frozen. We claim about it and they just warm up the sandwich and give it back to us.

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
