Cafe De Luce
This spot in Montmartre is everything you want from a corner café in Paris: rattan chairs, corner banquettes, classic cuisine like oeufs mayonaise, fois gras with compote, and tartarte de boeuf. Looking at it, it’s the kind of place you can walk up to without a reservation, sit down with a book, and eat a memorable meal without a fuss. The only difference? What they serve is way better than what you’d find at your average corner café. Tasty menu items include a wildly fresh salad of squash and goji berries, a flaky croissant stuffed with comté and ham, and a duck fat burger served with not-quite-skinny, but not-quite-thick fries that you won’t want to share. If your stomach starts growling while you’re strolling the hills of Montmartre, go ahead and live out your Fitzgerald fantasies at this quintessential-but-also-clever café, which is open for continuous service on Sundays.
