Café Varenne

36 Rue de Varenne
Paris , France
33-01-45-48-62-72

Café Varenne is more like a convivial brasserie rather than a typical Parisian café. Sitting on an ancient coin at the corner of Rue de Varenne and Rue du Bac in the seventh arrondisement, Café Varenne’s aging wood exterior matches the interior’s utter simplicity with few decorations, not-quite leather booths, and common tile floors. The food, however, is comforting French classics made using high-quality ingredients and traditional preparations. Some of the restaurant’s signature dishes are steak tartare and l’entrecôte steak with béarnaise sauce served with hand-cut Belgian fries or mashed potatoes.
