Sweet charming bistro located on a small pedestrian walk. Perfect lighting, buzzing crowd of all ages. Plus, they have souffles of all flavors!! Heavenly.
Family-run souffle restarant in the 7th (on a tiny walking street a couple of blocks from the Sevres-Babylone metro (right near Bon Marche department store). This is a locals' place ... no tourists. Don't expect the best table if you're not a regular. But be nice and take them in stride and you'll find what seems like rudeness initially is just that they are a family business and not professional waiters. Try to make a reservation if you can - it's always busy. If the weather is nice when you go - request the terrace. You might not get it, but doesn't hurt to ask.The important thing: the souffles - savory and sweet - are to die for. Absolutely. (and it's nice that they offer the dessert souffles 'en petite modele' for those who want just a little bit of dessert.
