After a day of touring, we went to Cafe Varenne based on wonderful recommendations from friends who live in Paris. We encountered the most rudest, insulting, pompous, waiter that I have ever met in my life. He was rude from the moment we sat down....More

Looking for something typical French and you're around? Look no further. This is what we did. We strolled around the south bank, walking from Pont Alexandre III to Luxembourg Gardens. We needed a great place to have lunch. There are not too many places in...More

When back in France I always expect great food and am ready for poor service. Things change: Café Varenne was disappointing on the food (a lousy bavette with a tasteless sauce, pricey for what it was), but service was fine and location and decoration perfect.

My daughter and I stopped here and enjoyed a cup of coffee and a lemon tart and a fresh berry tart. Pricey but well worth the cost. If I find myself close by I would definitely stop.

We did not eat breakfast there. I'm not sure it's open for breakfast. At Hotel Pont Royal the breakfast is wonderful!

I have seen dogs there but it is not really a patio. It is more a row of small table and seats each side. Rue de Bac is a busy place and your dog would have to be well behaved to avoid being trod on by pedestrians!
