La Coupe d'Or
Essentially a hip neighborhood bar in the chic First Arrondissement, La Coupe d’Or is all about people watching from a sidewalk seat on one of the city’s most fashionable street corners. Located on Rue St. Honore amidst the myriad boutiques and marchés (markets), La Coup d’Or serves the Parisian version of pub food: croque-monsieur (a grilled ham and cheese sandwich) and chicken or steak frites, with éclairs and lemon tarts for dessert. It’s an ideal spot to fuel up before a shopping trip or take a break when your bags are full.
