Au Petit Fer à Cheval

This more than 100-year-old cafe draws crowds for its perfect position for people watching.

Charming horseshoe-shaped bar with original zinc countertop oozes the France of yesteryear, with flirty service and adequate meals from the neighboring restaurant. But the best part of this place is sitting back and watching the parade of fabulous people strolling by in this hopping corner of the Marais while sipping a café in the morning or a spritz at sunset. It’s a neighborhood institution that attracts regulars and visitors in-the-know. And now you know.
