We needed a place for lunch before going to the Louvre...we walked the neighborhood, and this place had the most people in it by far, so we went in. Most of the clientele seemed like repeat customers, and fortunately, we lucked out and got a table. This ended up being a great pick. The waiters were very nice and service... More

The building was a little shabby, water from the roof was leaking on to the seats in places, but it was very pleasant otherwise. The menu was not extensive, however there were some lovely meals. The Country Salad with baked Camembert was exceptional. The staff were very friendly and cheerful. A lovely evening.

The reputation for Paris cafe waiters being rude is incorrect. These guys were very polite and friendly, didn't give me a hard time about not speaking French, and had good food to boot. I had the cheeseburger, and it was American quality, so I was quite happy. Very close to the Louvre, and inexpensive.

I used to live quite close to this place and visit it on a regular base. It is a typical French cafe with great food. The service is sometimes perfect, sometimes a bit weird and slow. I can recommend their burger and steak and the house red wine is very delicious. I find the prices a bit too high but... More

Classic cafe - crowded (evenings) and quite noisy but full of life. Oddly, given the location near the Louvre, vast majority of the customers appear ro be local. Simple menu, well prepared food. Service good and good value.

Good food, good service, reasonable prices, good location. What more do you want? Oeufs cocotte creamy and delicious, steak tartare excellent. Give it a try.

I visited Cafe blanc after a long visit to the Louvre to grab a bite and rest a bit. It was a nice experience but nothing too special about it. It is located 5 minutes away from the Louvre museum. You can get there by foot or by car but I strongly recommend walking there since parking would be tough... More

We had such great food here the last time we were in Paris that we made a trip across town to have lunch at cafe blanc, the day we arrived in town again. Not great this time. We ordered a couple of salads that we had liked so much from the previous trip but neither had much flavor. My husband... More
