Bakery with seating outside. I had a tomato and mozzarella tart which was packed with flavour - sensational. My friend had a quiche that he thoroughly enjoyed. Prices are reasonable and the street outside is very pleasant

The teens with us had never had quiche before. What a great introduction at this lovely cafe! We sat outside and watched the people go by, warm under heat lamps. Highly recommend stopping here!

In Saint-Germain-des-Prés, life is effortlessly chic
and all things are beautiful. The main boulevard is
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
