Went here for lunch after visiting the Notre Dame Basilica based on other TripAdvisor reviews. So glad we did - great sandwiches and super friendly owner/employees. Great cappuccino and lattes too!

Small unsuspecting coffee shop just off the Notre Dame square. Small selection, but good quality. $11 for coffee, Chai, cinnamon bun, and iced tea. Some breakfast and lunch options, too.
