A prime spot for soaking up rue Mouffetard’s contagious ‘saunter-all-day’ spirit, this neighbourhood hang out sits on square St-Médard, one of the Latin Quarter’s loveliest, with flower-bedecked fountain, centuries-old church and market stalls spilling across one side. Inside, locals and their pet dogs meet for coffee around dark wood tables alongside a local wine-sipping set. In summer everything spills outside.
