Pause Café Paris: best Bastille restaurant for locals


Pause Café is one of my favorite places to go when in the neighborhood of la Bastille, in the 11th arrondissement of Paris. It’s unpretentious, and charming – just as a good Parisian restaurant should be. It’s immensely popular with the locals and if you come here on a nice day during lunchtime, you’re sure to see the place packed!

Pause Café has a sixties vibe inside – and it was even featured in the 1996 French film, Chacun Cherche Son Chat, directed by Cedric Klapisch.

I love sitting outside on the terrace and people-watching from this restaurant. I highly recommend a visit if you are in the area!
