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.

This restaurant is bursting with French charm and it just happens to be the setting of one of the scenes in the movie Before Sunset! The food is pretty basic (including steak and fries, pork ribs, fish and chips and various salads) and reasonably priced. The desserts are a little more creative and are definitely worth a try! Great place for dinner with family or friends, although at night the noise level is pretty high. Friendly staff and a nice warm atmosphere in a lovely area of Paris!
