Café in Luxembourg Gardens

Jardin du Luxembourg

Café Les Gaufres (“waffles”) is a picturesque café in the Luxembourg Gardens located amongst the trees near the park entrance from Place Edmund Rostand. Painted a dark green and adorned with gingerbread details, this pavilion is a popular oasis for park visitors. I was astonished on my first visit to observe that the café sports a shocking orange interior. Surprisingly, the waiters are dressed in formal black vests as they go about delivering drinks and light lunches. Open 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. daily. No credit cards.
