I was looking forward to coming here after I read the reviews. The restaurant is called Comptoir and serves all kinds of toast and jam. Service was good nice and quiet but €25 for toast jam and tea was a lot to pay.

This is a worthwhile place for lunch, next door to and owned by Poilane Bakery, featuring open face sandwiches (tartines) on Poilane Bread at reasonable prices. It is also in a wonderful area to browse the shops.

We went for breakfast on this visit. I think it is a bit better for lunch but breakfast is very good and we had the place to ourselves. Service was good, as well.

What a disappointment. Service, while seemingly well intended, was terrible. They couldn't be more disorganised. The food was mediocre at best. How can you burn your bread when that is what your establishment is promoting (Poilane)?! Had to ask for things multiple times and still...More

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

Yes. They serve light breakfast and lunch. I don't drink coffee and my husband only drinks espresso but it is not uncommon to see a cafe creme in a bowl.
