Just in front of the Pompidou Centre, the very pretty Café Beaubourg makes the most of its lovely terrace on the corner in this animated pedestrian area. The clientele is a mix of bright young things and tourists who come to enjoy the sun-filled location on fine days and evenings. Founded by the Costes brothers, this is a very chic little establishment. The décor is all white and red and the sofas are very comfortable (even the outdoor ones). The bar-restaurants is a success, even though the service can be disappointingly impersonal and some days, plain bad. The prices here are high for what is essentially well-executed but not excellent french cuisine. Probably best to stick to a nice drink in the sunshine.
