Le Pure Café
Time Out says
Time stands still in Le Pure Café, a coveted neighbourhood haunt in the 11th, dressed up to the nines in 1930s era lights, mirrors, tiles and a gigantic zinc bar, around which trendy waiters bustle between the tables. Set on the corner of rue Jean Macé, three huge bay windows frosted with art deco flowers filter light into the dining room, where Le Pure serves homely vintage dishes like duck in honey sauce, lamb chops roasted in rosemary and pears poached in red wine. Just as comforting is the chocolat chaud, made from rich melted chocolate. On a sunny day, grab a spot on the terrace and watch the world go by along bustling rue Faidherbe, just across the way.
