We had two breakfasts in a row at this little shop in Les Halles. Of particular enjoyment for me was the shop-cat who hopped in my lap and snuggled like a baby. But the food was good too!

Nice waitress doing her best, but overwhelmed by the number of people - error in my order (nicely corrected afterwards). And I had to stand twice to get my dessert order taken. Fries do not look home-made. Nice cheesecake at the end.

Terrible service - obviously being a solo diner I was not deemed important enough. Very rude staff on arrival, waited over 5 minutes with the waiter ignoring me before I decided to spend my money elsewhere. Would recommend others do the same.

One of the best burgers ever. The service was quick and the food was served hot. Generous portions of the ravioli. The waiter, Pierre offered to find us a table for our large group. The menu was in both English and French.

We stopped there after Cafe theatre. People very friendly, very active place and very cosy room on the first floor. I recommend.

As others have mentioned the service is "hit and miss". I guessed I should just find myself a table because when I walked towards two different waiters, they walked in the opposite direction. Once seated I was lucky there were spare menus on the table...More

Les Halles
Historically the central iron-clad market of Paris,
Les Halles has evolved architecturally since then but
the pulsating energy has stayed the same. Now it
houses the main shopping mall, which nestles
underground surrounded by fast-food take-aways and
international restaurants coupled with beautiful
churches and the old commodity exchange. Parallel to
it are the high-street stores of Rue de Rivoli and
