We stayed at Hotel de Londres eiffel as recommended by Rick Steeves. A cafe on the same street not mentioned in his guide was Chez Agnez. The cafe is casual, food wonderful, the chef very friendly and we had great conversations with the local patrons. One of the best meals we had. Highly recommend. Dee
Dee, We will make a point of visiting Chez Agnez. Any special dish I should order?
Several participants in this Travelers Helpline have noted (and recommend) these Paris eating establishments:
Leo le Leon
The crêperie at 36 rue Mouffetard called
Cousin / Cousine (a crêpes takee-outee).
Have you tried either?
Thanks for your Chez recommendations. P.
Dee, rick actually does casually mention Chez Agnes in his book under "other". We found Ches Agnes a few years ago just wandering around and loved it. I know some posters have been unhappy with Agnes's eccentricities but we felt like we were having a wonderful dinner a a beloved aunt's home. We never get out in under 3 or 4 hours due to the great conversation and people we meet in her intimate setting. Its now a tradition whenver we are in Paris.
