This is a wonderful cafe that allows you to have a good meal (their vegetable soup was perfect) and to sit facing the street for the best people-watching. There are many cafes close-by, but I highly recommend Bonaparte for its food, service and location.

It was another cafe on the street. Nothing special. They had the best cappuccino we had while we were here.

I stopped in for a latish lunch & it was still rather crowded, with tables tightly packed together to make the most of the small space. The food was good (I had the gnocchi) and the service was pleasant & attentive. Plus the location is...More

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
oldest in Paris and is the backdrop for talented
