Given the name, does getting a 4 euro breakfast (juice, coffee, croissant) here surprise you?  And yet you can, not to mention 5 euro champagne by the glass in the evening.  It's off the Champs d'Elysees, so the low prices are doubly impressive.   LG Williams Cafe and Cocktail Map it! 26 Avenue de ...more...
