Good choice of salads and sandwiches. Typical French selection and high quality. As with all Paris bistro's, fairly expensive. Nice outdoor heated seated which added to the ambiance. Note to those adverse to tight seating- be forewarned, all the bistro's in Paris are very tight.

It's a café. So you can eat there but it is best as a bar menu. Great omelettes. Not un reasonable. About €25 a head for food, booze and coffee. Paris is not a cheap place and St Germain is definitely not cheap.

So, mid December in Paris, able to sit outside with a fag and a drink with the sun on you. Bliss.

We ar on a search for the best onion soup in France. Unfortunately cafe Bonaparte fell short on this. not enough onions, not enough flavor and appeared to be supplemented by dehydrated onions. Good service and atmosphere ... just not great soup.

Had a late supper at cafe Bonaparte and was offered a menu of bar food. I tried the grilled spring chicken with a sauce on the side that was a bit too sweet and sour. The two sides of spinach and the sliced carrots were incredibly delicious oozing with butter and emphasizing the sweetness of the carrots. I enjoyed them more than the chicken. My fellow diner had croque Madame, basically a gam and cheese sandwich with an fried egg on top. The croque Monsieur doesn't gave the egg. She enjoyed hers. The smoke from the smoking patio every time the door opened every few seconds detracted from our enjoyment of the evening but that was the only place to sit in this very busy cafe.

The Cafe Bonaparte is our first meal stop in Paris. With a convenient location across the street from St. Germain-des-Pres, it's the perfect meal after a long plane ride. It's always crowded, which is also a great indication of its consistency in service and food. The onion soup and warm goat cheese salad are our personal favorites and we discovered the omelets and macaroni and cheese this time around. Be prepared for lots of activity, super busy waiters (but helpful and cheerful) and prices very typical (12€ for the soup). It's Paris! Relax and eat well.
