From the New York Times article "Hidden Gardens"


It's not easy to find a calm and inexpensive café on the Champs Elysées, so this modern tearoom hidden inside the art nouveau-era Petit Palais (Municipal Fine Arts Museum) is a real find. Located between the Champs-Elysées and the Seine, across from the Grand Palais, simply enter the Petit Palais (free entry to the permanent collection), and follow signs to the café (entrance is through the mosaic-tiled garden). Sip an espresso or snack on a sandwich on the patio in warmer months, or head inside to the cozy mezzanine where you can even check your emails (free WiFi). Open Tues-Sun 10am-6pm.
