“The location is great! (errr, that's the end of the good news.)”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The food was adequate but the service was surly, disinterested and at times, just plain rude. In other countries you hear about such experiences in France, but fortunately this was the only place in two weeks where we experienced less than great service. Everybody else was charming and attentive. NOT so at Le Cafe du Musee. To be clear, this is the place on the corner, not in the Musee Rodin. I should also point out that the obnoxious service was not limited to one person. All three service staff we had contact with gave us the distinct impression that they wished all the patrons would just go away. In the middle of the afternoon.

“Good quiche, Sancerre, and people watching”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

This is an easy lunch spot after the Rodin museum or Les Invalides. Typical French bistro fare and service, but a nice corner of Paris for seeing people come and go. Not worth a special trip, but certainly a nice respite from the hustle and bustle of seeing Paris.

“Great lunch - affordable stop!”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

We stopped for lunch while at the museum and were so glad we did. A light lunch of soup legumes and a salad was perfect. The croissants were light and fresh. This is a buffet style and it was fast and easy to make a choice with every dish laid out for viewing behind the glass.

“Great lunch after the Rodin Museum”
Reviewed 29 October 2013 via mobile

The crowd at lunchtime meant we had to squeeze in, but it was worth it. The daily special dish of Lapin ( rabbit breast) was one of the best dishes I had in the 2 weeks we spent in Paris. The waiter was helpful and the local diners friendly. We would certainly go back.

“Avoid at all costs”
Reviewed 20 September 2013 via mobile

This museum is located caddy-corner to Musee Rodin, called "du musee," and its' menu is listed in several languages. All of this would lead you to believe that the patrons would, if not be overjoyed about tourists, at least be cordial, as this cafe's namesake indicates its' understanding that it is adjacent to a tourist destination. You would be incorrect. The waiter we had was brisque and dour, even when addressed exclusively in French, rushed us to order, and then WALKED AWAY when my companion hesitated for a few seconds (seriously, about 10 seconds) when selecting her order. We got up and walked out. Don't place your cafe next to museum, and name your resto after it, if you dont want museum visitors coming to your cafe!
