Very nice, healthy and fresh place to eat. There is an English menu for tourists and the staff spoke great English.

This is a cool spot: there's a bakery in the front where you can buy bread AND spreads, but there's also a sit-down cafe in the back. We had to wait an unusually long amount of time and had to flag someone down to order our food, even though it wasn't that busy... When the food finally came, it was... More

Found this restaurant around the corner from our flat the morning we arrived in Paris. Friendly and attentive waitstaff. Diverse menu including many options for but not exclusively for vegetarians and vegans. The breads and pastries were very good. The Petit Dejeuner selection includes breads, a pastry like pan du chocolat, soft boiled egg, juice and a hot beverage. Perfect... More

Granola parfait at PQ is my favourite all over the world. Fruit was a little different in Paris, but very fresh. Friendly and efficient service!

I usually really like the food at this chain, the salads, soups and tartines but was very disappointed with the detox salad. the quinoa was ok but the small amount of salad underneath was barely tossed with dressing. The carrots and fennel were cut into ribbons that my fork couldn't penetrate and I had to use my fingers to eat... More

We had a terrible experience at this place, we went there for breakfast, we waited about half an hour for someone to come and take our order. The waitress was the rudest waitress I've ever had to deal with, she was very grumpy and looked like she didn't want to be there at all. She even dropped soup at another... More

We visited this restaurant after just getting into Paris the night before. The food was very good, the service was friendly and the street it was on was nice and quiet. This appeared to be visited by locals and tourists like ourselves. The prices appeared to be fair and this is exactly what I expected when I thought of a... More

In the evening this is a busy, buzzy bar/resto with mainly young clientele. The service is good although if you like beer the choice is a couple of belgian beers. Food was excellent with good veggie choices for someone in the group who was vegetarian. I had a Salade chevre chaud which was excellent. Would go back.
