We've enjoyed a number of visits to Cafe Jade during our visit to Paris. We stumbled in the first time because it is literally right outside of our apartment building, but have come back because of the delicious food and impeccable service.

A great spot for a quick lunch, we've found that their salads are top notch. As is the duck. A small but workable wine list completes the carte.

Most impressive, though, is the service. Both day and night, the cafe is staffed by young, energetic, and kindly waiters and waitresses. They move fluently between English and French, and remembered us after our first visit.

For an amazing street side view of the pedestrian blocks of rue de Buci, drop into Cafe Jade!

Man oh man what a disastrous night
We called into cafe jade for a drink and stayed for dinner - what a mistake
The food is slap stick, yes that's right slapped on a plate and that's where it sticks.
Staff are too busy trying to perve on the young girls that frequent the place than to serve customers
Steak that I ordered appears to have been manufactured at the Goodyear rubber plant. The "chef" came and replaced ours and the young Danish folks meals that were sitting beside us. Unfortunately for one of the Danish girls her replacement rump came with an elastic band which she found by it sticking to her teeth
Guys seriously if you are looking for dinner in Paris I would suggest that you trawl through the bins in Saint. Germain before you frequent this so called "cafe"

I love that place. the service is friendly, outstanding and the portion are generous.
it changes from the other places where arrogant waiters provide you a lousy service.
we will come back to explore more on the food.
I recommend the terrace right on the street. it's currently very cold in Paris but they got heaters.

We picked this place almost at random for lunch after a long train trip from Provence, even though we know Rue de Buci is very touristy. We ordered omelets. Generally, you pretty much can't get a bad omelet in France, but this place managed to badly overcook it. They should lose their French citizenship. The servers were lazy and too busy chatting amongst themselves to actually serve. It took three tries to get the bill, and I ended up having to take the bill to the cashier myself to pay and get out of there. For reference, we've been to France (including Paris) at least a dozen times over the last fifteen years and are very familiar with French cafe food.

Nice sidewalk eating, though we chose to eat inside that night. Quich and salad was very good, and the wine (albeit from a very limited list) was excellent. Over all, it's good, but I wouldn't seek it out if I if I was across town.
