Meeting point



Le Carpe Diem Cafe

Just a couple of steps away from the gardens of les Halles and the Rue de Rivoli, Le Carpe Diem Café welcomes you to the heart of Paris.

A relaxing place to enjoy refined French cuisine. Comfortably seated at table, you can try the famous Camembert roasted with a cider caramel… or a ducks breast cooked with apples and a gratin of caramelised banana… or simply sip a cognac or a caipirinha in the rotonde and discover the current exhibition in a living room dedicated to the work of young artists.

An interior design using métal and velvet creates a refined and sober atmosphere suitable for all occasions.
Seize the day… A beautiful invitation !

Your choice…

Our menu is carefully prepared with all dishes homemade with fresh ingredients which are delivered daily. You can also enjoy our selection of wines, beers & cocktails…
Breakfast is served each day from 9:30 to 11:30 and Brunch is a favourite every Saturday.

But also …

You can take the time to play chess, backgammon or even flip through a book from the library…

In short, relax as you please!

The Living room


The living room is dedicated in part to exhibitions of young artists, but it is also an ideal venue to meet your friends. If you wish to organise a personal or professional event, in a spacious and friendly private space, the living room is available for groups. We can also arrange canapes and buffet snacks.
