This is why the Parisians (of the neighborhood… but also the others!) do not hesitate to land on its pretty terrace in sunny weather. Behind her bamboo hedge, under the plane trees, she reveals herself intimate and welcoming. It is good to stop there to meet up, chat, but also to watch the frantic Parisian life pass before your eyes... For even more intimacy, head for the interior of the bar which lives throughout the day, from the first morning coffee.
