In a busy and sometimes suffocating area like the Marais, space and relaxation are often just what is needed after a morning of rummaging through the district’s vintage boutiques. It is often difficult to find a café that is not brimming with people during the lunchtime rush.
However, in this case, the philosophy of ‘wandering off the beaten track’ is especially rewarding. Located at the top of Rue Payenne, the quaint café is located at close proximity to the Square Georges Cain. Inside, the decor is classic and the staff are friendly and accommodating. At lunchtime, streams of regulars arrive and choose the plat du jour without looking at the menu – a sign that their reputation precedes them. One immediately knows that Le Sevigné is about community as much as welcoming in new customers.
Why not top an afternoon of reading in the Square Georges Cain with a café allongé at Le Sevigne? With seats outside, it is easy to slip away into a daydream as busy lives rush past and disappear into the winding streets and passageways. The area is perfect for wandering around, and the shops on the nearby Rue des Francs-Bourgeois are undoubtedly tempting, especially for trend-setters.
