You’re not exactly out of options when it comes to dining out in Paris but if you’re not used to the city, it can be hard to spot the genuine brasseries from the tourist traps… I myself have experienced my fair share of snappy waiters and slap dash meals which is why I’m always so thrilled when I find a little gem like the Cafe Latin!
The Cafe Latin is a particular favourite of mine for more than a few reasons. When it comes to the food, you’ll find fresh ingredients and a varied menu with a selection of constantly changing plats du jour. Prices are reasonable and the service can’t be faulted but what I love best about this little spot, only minutes away from the Cathédrale Notre Dame, is the wonderfully warm ambiance which is just so perfectly Parisian. Guests, friends and family members all come and go, perching on stools at the bar or tucked away in mysterious booths as they peruse the carte du jour.
The waiters are extremely friendly and more than ready to have a good laugh (as well as giving excellent advice on wine!) and you feel almost as though you are dining amongst good friends. Located in the heart of the Quartier Latin, you won’t regret an evening at this little bistro and you’ll probably even leave your table with a big smile as you head back into the lively street of this fun Parisian district.
