In 2013 tart-maker extraordinaire Catherine Kluger set up shop on the 300m2 terrace of the Cinéma Etoile Lilas; now the turn of Les Sardignac, a small bistro opposite Les Folies Bergère owned by a couple of screenwriters. The terrace isn't very high up and the view isn't exactly breathtaking, but it is open and sunlit and never gets too packed. Ideally suited to a coffee in the afternoon or a glass of something stronger in the evening, the fresh air and chilled vibe will transport you a million miles away from Paris. Add to this the fresh produce, simple but well-made dishes (burgers, salads, hotdogs, meat, fish and charcuterie plates – all around the €20 mark), solid wine selection and friendly service, and you have all the ingredients for a good time - and you haven't even stepped inside the cinema yet. The prices are perhaps a little on the elevated side, but we think the quality food and great setting justify those extra centimes.
