I stopped here in April for lunch with two chocolate-makers visiting from the US (they were taking a class at Valrhona Chocolate). It’s a cute little café and tea room with a menu that has something for almost everyone -- meat, fish, pasta, quiches, salads and even vegetarian dishes like tofu lasagna, which I tried for the hell of it (thumbs up). The best thing about this place, though, is the terrace: located on a cobblestoned, tree-shaded corner facing the gardens at the foot of the Sacre-Coeur Basilica at Montmartre. Get there early-ish if you want a place in the sun! Open daily, noon-midnight.
