We always have lunch here while wandering the St. Germain area. We receive quality meals and splendid service. Can be very busy during lunch. Will always return.

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic

dotted with famed terraced cafés, haut-couture shops,
ivy-covered railings and fine-dining restaurants.
Antique dealers and art galleries surround the fine
art school and small museums hide in unassuming
squares. The neighbourhood’s namesake church is the
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
