Went here as I was waiting for my night tour to start...the escargot was quite good and also reasonably priced. The main entree though, took over an hour after the appetizers were done. It left me hurriedly trying to finish to not miss the start...More

This was just what we needed as we awaited out time to play an escape room. the place was convenient but more than that the staff were welcoming and accommodating and the desserts were great! Would go back again and maybe try some other food.

We came to this place twice for breakfast during our stay in Paris, mostly because it was close to our hotel and the metro. They have a lot of indoor and outdoor seating and have set breakfast menus from 7.50-10.50 euros. I had the orange...More

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
