Le Temps des cerises
On the corner of an inconspicuous road in the fourth arrondissement, in sharp contrast to the very busy tourist areas of the Marais and Bastille districts, Le Temps des cerises is a very typical Parisian bistro with a welcoming atmosphere, a world apart from large brasseries and trendy eating places. The historical setting consists of a small 18th century house, covered in ochre ceramic tiles. A former annex of the Celestine convent, and a listed historic building, it contrasts strongly with the other monotonous high buildings on the road, all the more so as some garden gnomes have taken up residence with the daffodils in the window-boxes. Retro objects found by the owners at flea markets make up the distinctive decoration. The walls are covered with faded posters and old photos, and the food and wine menus are still chalked up on a slate board. You can try the simple but tasty French home cooking, or just have a snack at the popular zinc counter. This unique restaurant sometimes features live music, and you can eat outside in summer.
