    From noon to midnight, packed with folks ordering finger foods—ham croquettes, duck confit sausage hot dogs, fried Parmesan cheese puffs—from the drop-down ceiling menu and chalkboard daily specials.

    Very reasonable but tasty tapas and wine. Carpaccio at €6.50 is a must order. Mushroom is something you can't miss.

    Love it!! Better moving space during lunch time, too crowded in the evening... You can not have the crepe inside, only the hors d'ouvres. Try the gaufre w/ artichokes & ham

    At this elbow-to-elbow “hors d’oeuvres bar,” the bread basket is communal, but the foie gras skewers and boudin noir macarons are just for you. More places to eat like a local:

    Crazy good apero place, an affordable high quality gem in Saint Germain. You'll have to stand and order things listed both on ceiling and on daily menus. Good values and friendly staff

    Hands-down the best value food in Paris and most jovial atmosphere. Prop self at counter, select glass of wine, charcuterie, and small plates. Daily specials always great: pig ears, tripe are faves.

    Expect amazing food. Also, expect hilarious service that can only be explained by drugs or a medical condition.

    Favorite place for 2 years now : Wine, prosciutto, cheese, carpaccio, mushrooms... On the counter, in a small place and with a great staff! You need to tolerate noise and being very close to people 😉

    SMALL! So forgive ppl who bump into you. But well worth a visit. The people working there are all really nice. The menu (tapas) is hanging from the ceiling! So cool, and not something you everyday.

    Go with the flow... Grab a wine, just tell them what you like and they will figure it out. Camembert , codfish croquettes and ham. Be happy. You're welcome
