We entered on a cold November afternoon attracted by the cozy atmosphere. We wanted to have something to eat from the menu of the day that was advertised outside.
Only cakes were available, because the cook was not available. Then you should put a sign outside or warn your guests before you let them sit down. The lady managing the place was edge and not very friendly but we decided to stay. We got extremely expensive orange squeeze and a piece of cake (it was ok nothing more). One of the guests on the way to the cash desk broke a glass: glasses were kept at the open air below the coffee machine, and that girls hit one of them with a bag. The glass fell and got broken and then we were witness of one of the meanest behavior a manager could go for in her premises: she mistreated the girl and she tried to feel her as guilty as possible. She claimed she destroyed an "antique" crystal glass, she should have been more careful, and she charged her 25 euros. Resuming: cozy atmosphere is not enough if you spend 20 eur for a piece of a regular cake and a small orange squeeze, and you also have to be attended by a rude and insensitive bar tender.

will draw you in to this delightful boulangerie. Located along a quiet street filled with art galleries, this quaint restaurant beaconed us in with a window full of delectable desserts. There were pies, tarts, and cakes that made the mouth water...can you eat a window? My husband and I walked into the restaurant that feels like a home. The mother and daughter have been in business together for over 20 years. We sat down and had a tasty light lunch of salad, poached eggs and salmon. And then came the question, "Would you like to go over to the window and choose a dessert?" I think I ran to the window and chose a cherry cake in milk and my husband chose a cherry tart. Both were wonderful, but I must say my husband's tart was possibly the best I have ever tasted! It was warm, sweet, with a bit of cinnamon. My husband kept complementing me on my little find in the middle of the day.

We were two couples looking for a place to eat in the d'Orsay area. It was only 6:00 so most places were still closed for dinner. We almost walked past Les nuits des thes when we saw people eating at a table near the window. We went in and realized that it was mostly a tea shop. A very nice older woman (the owner) greeted and seated us. She spoke almost no English but she figured out that we wanted dinner. Then she told us that she has two daily specials. She treated us like family. She told the men that they should have the chicken and pasta. She told the women that they should have the salmon and rice. We agreed and she went upstairs. When she brought our meals we were pleasantly surprised. The food was well prepared! After dinner we all had a different dessert. They were amazing! She was a very special lady and we thoroughly enjoyed spending our last evening in Paris with her.
