This Latin quarter cafe (located on the left bank in the Saint Germain Des Prés area) is always bustling with the bohemian chic who come to socialize over a number bottles of wine and nibble on some ham and cheese 'croque monsieur'. The out door terrace literally overflows with the locals and laughter while waiters dressed in traditional black and white uniforms weave from table to table.
The wine list is apparently still the same over the last few decades with the most popular whites being the Sauvignon, Saint Véran, Pouilly Fumé, Chablis, Champagne and the reds being the generic-Bordeaux, Brouilly, Saint Emilion, Graves, Morgon. One can either order by the glass or the bottle (I say go for the bottle!)

Before you rush off for a visit, note that there are actually three different areas in the Grand Palais, each with a different entrance: the Palais de la Découverte (a science museum) is at the Avenue Franklin Roosevelt, the Galeries National du Grand Palais (an exposition hall) has an entrance at the Clémenceau Square and the entrance to the Nef du Grand Palais (this event hall I wrote about) is at the Avenue Winston Churchill (opposite the Petit Palais). Nearest metro is Champs Elysees Clemenceau line 1 & 13
By the way, did you know that the Grand Palais is the largest existing ironwork and glass structure in the world? This place just gets even cooler!
Man, there is even that 'old movie' smell gracing the air…
