I’ve been to this fashion capital three times so far, but I never stop longing to go back and walk down Champs-Élysées, pop in a random boulangerie or pâtisserie, visit my favorite labyrinth of cosy tiny streets at Montmartre, drink wine at a brasserie while enjoying the view of Notre-Dame, visit food markets and eat ice cream while sitting on a bench by the Seine and looking at the Eiffel Tower, listen to the French accordion and kiss on a bench, take a walk along the Seine, enjoy your French baguette which is served as a complimentary starter in almost every brasserie, take a ride in Paris metro and look out when suddenly, at some point, it comes out and crosses the river, then, if you are lucky, you can see the Eiffel Tower blinking at you… I could make this list endless, but let me give you some practical tips. This week look out for the ten best foodie tips for Paris! Here comes tip 7. (Only 3 more to go, eh)
First of all, it’s worth it only because of the view! However, it’s a busy café, so don’t get upset if you don’t get the best table. I really recommend to go there for lunch, after visiting the Beauty itself. You’ll get the most of it on a sunny day, needless to say. The food is simple French, and the service is great. A bit pricy though. I’d recommend croque monsieur and a carafel of wine:)
P.S. A bit difficult to find, but go for the Musée du Quai Branly, look for the building covered with grass and plants, go in and say that you are for the café.
27 quai Branly, 7e (metro: Pont de l’Alma or Iéna)

P.S. My ultimate, “secret” research tool for Paris was Lonely Planet Paris (Travel Guide)
