The tiniest tots have their own baby space, as Cafézoïde aims to be an activity centre for all children, as much as for local kids as for those from elsewhere. Visitors heading back from the Parc de la Villette on foot are delighted to come across this surprising spot with its warm welcome. The idea? To encourage exchanges and solidarity from a young age.

    Comments:
    “Along with a group of mothers & children, we came here on a weekday morning. We had reserved ahead of time as we were many, around 15 or so not including the kids. They seated us in the outdoor area, which is really in the grand hall of Galerie Vivienne, so no need to worry about the weather. The children played and ran around. For the first time, the Parisians didnt seem to mind, especially not the tea room staff. I realized it was one of the only moments of dining that I didnt worry about my daughter and felt relaxed. The delicious & savoury tea – Empire du Sud (a blend of black tea with almond) and the scones served with jam & butter/cream are well worth the trip alone. Definitely, a repeat!” (CA, Sep 2011)
