We came here due to the ratings and glad we did! Wonderful food with many vegetarian options. But the lasagne and beef bougonine were great. Nice that you can reserve a table and have it ready when you arrive.

Just a simple typical breakfast to start out the day. The service was impeccable and the simplicity was superb- cappuccino croissant tartine omelet and fresh squeezed orange juice❤️

Found this place through trip advisor and could attest the food was tasty and unpretentious. The owner very helpful. Desserts were delicious and the red house wine we tasted was light and complemented our food. We were very much surprised by finding a place in...More

Went for breakfast. Freshly squeezed orange juice was delicious but half the glass was pith & pips. Middle-aged lady who served us wasn’t very friendly, despite our efforts

Had lunch earlier today with my wife in this fantastic classic Parisian cafe and loved every single thing about it. The owner - who may or may not be Louise herself was so charming and helpful and put us right at our ease. On top...More

All of us, including our 11-month old, were enchanted by the owner, who emptied a cozy corner where we wouldn't be bothered by other visitors, warmed the baby food, and even stopped to entertain the child when passing by. As for the rest, both wine...More

Lovely family run restaurant. Good food simply cooked. Friendly staff and a lovely atmosphere. The deserts were amazing. We had a highly enjoyable relaxed lunch. You may find cheaper but I doubt you will find better.

Louvre / Palais-Royal
From the majestic Louvre to the regal Palais-Royal,
this neighbourhood oozes luxury. The grand arches
along Rue de Rivoli are shadowed by mosaics in front
of decorated vitrines and hotels. Place Vendôme is
lined with the world’s best jewelers and their
glittering window displays. Every other establishment
has someone to open the door for you or park your car.
You can spend hours gazing at its haute couture shops

Absolutely! This is a small, very casual family run place that will welcome you with open arms. Try the ratatouille and ask for the special dish of the day. Tell Lilly her fans from NYC say bonjour. Enjoy.

These days most restaurants have gluten free choices on their menus. However, I don't remember them being individually noted on the Louise Café menu. If they aren't listed, I feel absolutely certain that they will be very... More
