A nice local café. We had brunch here, mostly locals. Service is ok, food is good, and the price is too. Sitting outside in april, in the sun, small street in central Paris is a nice feeling.

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
