Amazing to think people just walk past this cafe. Stop. Look up. Check out the free art from Salvador Dali! There is a sundial up on the wall (for pretty much no reason) which most people do not even notice. Odd but pretty cool.

We had a very enjoyable lunch. We started off with empanadas and then I had a chicken quesadilla and my husband had the chicken burrito. We topped it off with the house red wine. Everything was quite tasty and the service was also good.

We visited here because our planned restaurant was too busy, and we didn't regret it. The service was quick and the staff were very friendly. Food was excellent, and a good sized portion for the money. Drink prices seem to be on par with the...More

We were in there on a Saturday night when it was packed with a queue out the door. Good range of tasty options, nothing flash.

cafes, restaurants, and boutique cinemas. The streets
surrounding the fountain at Saint-Michel provide
eateries from around the world. Lively bars are just
next door and the prototypical terraced French
