Incredible breakfast buffet. Eggs made to order, crepes, fruit, salmon, yoghurt, cheeses, freshly squeezed orange juice, and a table filled with nothing but freshly baked croissants, breads and pastries. Cappuccino and other coffee drinks made to order are quite good. Avoid the coffee from the pot, as it is lukewarm. Decor is elegant, service good. Old world charm. Lovely. Le... More

Very overpriced stale croissants in a beautiful setting. The hot chocolate was not good either at 10 euro per cup. Do not recommend for a family breakfast.

After a day wandering around the city we needed a break. This restaurant across from the Metro stop beckoned and we were happy to sit under the glass roof of their cafe for tea. We split an eclair which came as four profiteroles sitting on a pastry plank. Inside was a delicious coffee cream. The dining area is a work... More

Before heading to the Eurostar we had time for a morning stroll and a little brunch. The opulent surroundings of Cafe de la Paix were too much to resist, as was the croquet Madame that is a classic on their menu. The waitress was friendly and efficient and the food could not have been nicer. It can be a good... More

Good place to stop for a while and enjoy a glass of wine or coffee in the middle of the day. The price is a little bit high, but is one of the famous place in Paris.

Stopped here for a coffee in the morning and liked the place so much that we went back for lunch. It's comfortable and we had a window seat from which we were able to watch the world go by.The food was excellent and with some wine and a dessert we spent a relaxed two hours. It's not the cheapest of... More

All good there. Price is obviously higher than standard, but it worths. Choose rather boulevard des Capucines glass roof side, very pleasant at lunch time. If too much crowded, just return inside on rue Scribe part of the building and choose the little dark bar side, instead of the very large central dining room, more cosy and pleasant. The breakfast...

Located in a prime location by the opera next door to the intercontinental hotel . The French flavor of professional service and French traditional dishes . Very good escargot. In between the dishes just look around through the windows and get a good look at the vibe of the major street .

Beautiful and luxurious restaurant with lovely facilities. Formal but not unfriendly. Our waiter was charming and helpful and the food was good, the service impeccable and the wine excellent. Not cheap but the surroundings setting and service make it good value. I shall return

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
