I had reserved for the temporary exhibition of Bernard Buffet. The video with explanation (53 min) was the best introduction you can get. There is more in the museum but after this must see event, you should enjoy a coffee or tea on the sunny terrace of the cafe.

Such a good place to eat even if you are not visiting the museum because the food is so good, light, quite cheap. Very rare in Paris. It's like eating at home, very french cuisine, as a family recipe. Of course it such a good spot between two expos in the museum! Even for the kids it is very well.... More

When you go to the Musee d'Art Moderne (which is free, by the way, with a great collection), there are two cafes to choose from located between this museum and the Palais de Tokyo which is literally next door. Go to the self-serve located in Art Moderne, which is the cafe on the left, and get your food to eat... More

I ordered daily food by menu - good and delicious. Cafe is o.k but dirty a table and chairs. Calm and rest during my lunch was disturbed noise of many tourists. Also skaters made noise (they rode along staircase next to cafe). Here was not calm to eat.

This restaurant is cafeteria style so when I got to the front of the line I pointed to something that looked likely, and lovely, and asked if it was vegetarian. It was. Basically a selection of five salads: Couscous, lentils, grated carrot, endive and walnut, caprese and a roll, too. Ok, there were only two mozzarella balls in the caprese... More

I was at this self-service cafe for a quick lunch before visiting the museum. The location is nice and has a great view on the Eiffel Tower from the terrace, but I ate here on a rainy day and I had to stay inside. The decor and the food are those of an average canteen, with average value for money.... More

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the neighbourhood of grand and impressive Haussmann-designed apartments and buildings. National museums overlook the Eiffel Tower and embassies fill the avenues and streets. Locals head to the butcher, florist, or bakery on their daily rounds amidst luxury and splendour, all with a view over Paris and its most famous tower. Snuggled in between the grand buildings are small art galleries and homes of historical significance. With a rich legacy from 19th century politics, art, and architecture, you can’t help but be reminded of the belle époque, the Universal Exhibitions and the nobility that have frequented and shaped these streets.
