Today I had lunch at in a lovely coffee shop called 13 au jardin (former 13 a baker's dozen), near Saint-Germain-des-Prés, and I just loved it.
As soon as I entered the coffee shop, located just opposite the Luxembourg gardens, I was welcomed, in English or rather in American, by Laurel, the charming owner of the place. And I felt at ease right away.
The place is very friendly. The kitchen is open and we can see the cook working and preparing the plates. I had a very tasty veg. kale salad and a fresh fruit juice. Everything was nice and fresh and very nicely accomodated. Laurel brought us some divine pastries to accompany our dishes; it was just yummy.
I warmly recommend this coffee shop. Everything is healthy, organic food, with a lovely taste and the atmosphere is charming. And the lovely terrace is non-smoking! Yes!
