Café and terrace in Paris
Café de la Paix
The Café de la Paix and its terrace facing the Opéra Garnier is unique in Paris, charged with History and a symbol of the City of Lights, embracing the world. Here, a blend of Imperial tradition and contemporary city spirit create an unrivaled venue.
Throughout the day, the Café de la Paix welcomes you in a chic café atmosphere offering legendary conviviality and the elegance of its prestigious setting.
From 8 to 11.30 am
Early in the morning, breakfast is a quick stop on the way to work; the oh-so Parisian coffee and croissant is served on the terrace or in the dining room. A bit later on, the famous morning break between browsing in the Grands Magasins, and window shopping down the nearby Rue de la Paix.
The terrace beckons you to a traditional marble-top table to place your order, sit back and enjoy the bustle and beauty of the Place de l’Opéra.
Lunch and Dinner
From 11.30 am to 11 pm
Treat yourself to a quick meal or snack in a luminous décor. The Café Opéra offers a varied menu including salads – such as the famous Opera salad – club sandwiches and creamy toasted croque-monsieurs, as well as a tempting platter of regional cheeses.
Your sweet tooth will guide you to Sophie’s desserts, a nod to our Pastry Chef. Sample the famous Opera Cake or Mille-Feuille pastry, or try a very special Baba au Rhum. Everything at the Café Opéra is homemade from fresh, seasonal products.
After whiling away the afternoon, you have a sudden longing for a cup of tea in winter, or fresh-pressed juice and homemade ice cream in summer… whatever the season, the Café Opéra is the Parisian Tea Room par excellence.
It’s also the perfect place to make the magic last after a ballet at the Opéra Garnier, a concert at the Olympia, a play at the Edouard VII or La Michodière theatres. The Café Opéra invites you inside where its elegant listed Second Empire elements, its wide, luminous bay windows, warm tones and natural materials create a welcoming ambiance.
