I have been to this cafe a few times and really enjoy their food. Had to come back to the 15th even though I'm staying in the 7th this trip (and I learned that food in the 15th is better and cheaper than in the 7th, where there are a lot of tourist traps!).
Conveniently located beside the Commerce Metro station, this cafe offers good food and service at reasonable prices. Their salads are great and good portions! A good place to come for lunch or dinner.
This place is just solid on all aspects. Great food, great atmosphere and great service. Located just a few blocks from our hotel this place is constantly busy and easily accessible by metro. The food is a mix of Italian, French and American classics. From Burgers to Pasta, and pizza to salads there is plenty to choose from. I went here three times during my three weeks in Paris and I was never disappointed.
1st visit - Entrecot/ Steak Fritte
*I opted for the 300g steak cooked medium rare and it is served with a bernaise sauce and some fried potatoes. Overall the steak was huge and flavorful. The sauce I can live without and the potatoes were just the perfect match to the well marbled beef.
*I believe it was 17.50 euros and the plate was enough for two!
2nd visit - pasta carbonarra
penne pasta with a light cream sauce and served with pancetta and a raw egg. I've never seen carbonarra made like this as I am accustomed to the bacon, peas and chicken cream sauce from back home. The pasta was very light and pleasurable to eat.
*at 12 euros you really can't go wrong.
3rd visit - pave de saumon
a nice grilled salmon with a nice crust and served with half a lemon and some potatoes. This was my favorite meal and once again they weren't being stingy on the portions. The salmon is served with a nice herb olive oil and with a hint of lemon it was delicious!
dessert - tiramisu
once again solid tramisu. Not the greatest I've had in Paris (Go to Chez Prosper!) Comes in a glass cup and good enough for two to share.
The decor is very modern and the restaurant has a welcoming atmosphere. You can see your pizzas being made as you walk in and they also have a bar at the front. It does get busy and it also closes a bit late.
Great for breakfast - there is a E6 with orange, coffee, croissant, bread and jam, or the same for E10 with bacon and two eggs. Very cheery owner.
For a cappuccino at 4.5 euros and a cold chocolate croissant at 1.5 euros, it was really expensive just to sit inside and eat a mediocre breakfast. For the price of the cappuccino, I'd expect the best tasting coffee and milk-- it was like any other. It is severely overpriced. The decor was nice but overall, it was just decent.
