Staying in the 1st and planning to prowl the Marais. Interested in fun places for coffee, drinks, snacks and lunches with prime people watching. will even entertain some "must do" tourist crap like L'ami Louis because chicken and potatoes.  What else should be on the list?

 

So far the list includes:

L'ami Louis

Claus St Germain de Pres

Hugo and Company

Asian Art Museum for wine (but really to steal a view of the Eiffel Tour from their terrace)

Ellsworth

Bar Hemmingway

Willi's Wine Bar

Chambelland Bakery

Helmut Newcake Bakery

Noglu Bakery

Foucade

Niébé

JahJah by Le Tricycle

Waly Fay

Berthillon

'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

To be honest, I find the list a bit odd.  What are you looking for?  These are a lot of places that are filled with tourists and a gluten free bakery (Noglu).  Are you prioritizing the food or really just looking for casual places to people watch?  Are you looking for hot spots or old classics?

Since you’ll be there & back before I go, I fully expect a report on which of the African places had the best chicken dishes. I’m gonna assume that the gluten free bakeries won’t have any.
