Came here a little later in the evening for dessert. I love chocolate brownies, lava cakes etc. but decided to go for the crepe. Maybe I shouldn't have as I visit Paris regularly. I was not impressed and disappointed. Staff was friendly enough.

Ordered dark chocolate cherry waffle and tomato mozzarella thin crust pizza with Italian dark chocolate drink which came in cute hug mugs. Certainly death by chocolate will have to pay for the sins by walking back.
