A Perfect Ending to a Perfect Trip!
I ate a wonderful meal here as my last evening meal in Paris. Fresh, good solid food and a good deal!

It's a cute place with lovely murals going up to the ceiling. Bathrooms are upstairs along with an additional dining area, so you'll be able to view the murals up-close as you ascend. I was the only non-French person there, which is always a good sign.

Some of the friendliest service I've had in Paris! I wish I had not waited 'til my last night to visit.

This is the perfect spot to hit after an afternoon at Cimetière Père Lachaise, being only 5-10 minutes walk north of it.

For you night owls out there, a very hip bar is nearby, Café Charbon at 109 rue Oberkampf.

Favorite Dish: Favorite dish: moelleux chocolat (Chocolate cake with melted center)

Dinner did not disappoint:
*1 house cocktail
*gaspacho tomates (I was leery of gazpacho in Paris, but honey, it was good!)
*carré d'agneau (saddle of lamb)
*1/4 carafe of house wine
*un carafe d'eau in a lovely blue wine bottle
*moelleux chocolat for dessert followed by café (I miss the café)
