Wow they cutted the cake so thin!!! The guy behind the counter is kind but its a pity they dont serve the cakes as they did on the Tv-show "très très bon" on Paris Première. The average customer is not important as they are! A shame! Overpriced.

The place looks super cute and cozy. The girls behind the counter where friendly I came to this place because I heard that they have good coffee. Unfortunately the coffee itself wasn't mind blowing, it was kind of average to be honest. I had personally had the breakfast menu. This wasn't that great because I need something salty.This is the...

We sat for barely 5 min when the waitstaff exclaimed "service is at the counter!" Duh, we knew... It's a cafe! Portion of coffee a complete rip off for the price. Diluted.

I discovered a lovely place where I had a delicious white chocolate and pecan cookie... The homemade lemon juice is even better when mixed with ice tea. I learned there it's called a Palmer. I'll try something new when I come back

Stopped here on a rainy afternoon with friends and we all had a coffee and a cupcake/cake. Nothing to write home about, there are far better coffee places in Paris, and my cake was dry and not very flavourful. Location is good, but if you want great cakes and coffee, go elsewhere.

It has an eclectic feel to it compared to a lot of French cafés. It has a nice selection of desserts and drinks. The service was very good. They seemed very kind. The neighborhood is quite nice and quite. It is not far from the Pantheon too.

I felt like I got ripped off because I was a foreigner... Pretty sure that it shouldn't cost €8 for two plain take-away bagels!? If it does, then it's the most expensive (least satisfying) bagel you're bound to ever it! #avoid

The cafe was busy and so is clearly popular! The carrot cake was lovely and a very generous portion!!! I felt the cafe lacked a homely feel but was still very cute.

I've been to Sugarplum a few times and I really enjoy their cake and coffee. The girls behind the counter were constantly licking the icing off their fingers after cutting a slice of cake. Seeing someone behind the counter sticking their whole finger inside their mouth is disgusting, unprofessional and unhygienic. I don't think I'll be going back any time... More

Staying in Quartier Latin

Neighbourhood Profile
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 the day students rush from classes to the library and intellectuals people watch from the terraced cafés. As night time falls the surrounding establishments fill up and the merriment really begins. The liveliest parts are around Rue Mouffetard, lined with crêperies and international street food eateries, and Place de la Contrescarpe characterised by terraced brasseries, this neighbourhood provides real nourishment for the mind, belly, and soul.
