View on the garden, total calm, the sun comes to tickle the end of the your nose while you choose how to start off your day. The charming “garçons de café”, (rare enough to be noted) come take the order: croissant (1,80€), freshly buttered baguette (1,80€), country bread toasts to spread with jam ( 2,50€) with everything to be dipped in your coffee (2,80€) or chocolate…

Cherry on the cake, if you ask for some water, a young man will bring you a glass of fresh city water and a big pitcher. Real service for sure?

PS: for the people anecdote, it happens to be the favorite café of Jack Lang who comes to have breakfast there every morning.

Careful : they don’t take credit cards.
