This peaceful ans secret place, in the shade of the trees and the walls of the old Les Récollets convent, is hiden a few steps from the busy and noisy Gare de l'Est. The beautiful building is now housing the Maison de l'Architecture and an international center for foreign researchers and artists. Therefore, the café is sometimes closed for special events linked with thoses activities.
Last minute update: the name has changed as well as the owners, but the place is always worth it! You can have a proper lunch, a salad, or just a drink, with or without a dessert!
