Ok, the food is decent, the onion soup is better than most. The service is decent and classically French meaning, brief and curt, not too friendly, not obviously rude. So why do I keep going back? Because I want to feel oh so Parisian, and...More

This really is a place to visit to say you have been there although it’s fabulous for some people watching on this busy Parisian Street. It is expensive but I didn’t really mind for the experience.

Good for a small breakfast, the quiche was very good. The omelette was watery and the cheese too pungent. We sat inside the restaurant with 6 people and it's an extremely busy place. We got bumped over and over, and felt rushed overall. The service...More
