Spring is here and that means it’s terrace season in Paris!

Maison 2-2
Last summer, I had tea with some friends at the Maison de L’Amérique Latine in Saint-Germain. This Latin cultural center houses exhibits and events, but it is also home to one of Paris’s nicer restaurants and certainly one of Paris’s nicest terraces.


Although the menu is a bit pricey, the experience is worth the splurge. But you can also go for a late afternoon drink or dessert to take advantage of the setting without the high price tag.

Maison 2

Be sure to spend some time after your meal exploring the garden of the beautiful hôtel particulier.


The restaurant is open Monday through Friday for lunch and dinner (May 2 – September 30) and for lunch only in the off-season. Reservations are recommended. Call +33 1 49 54 75 10.
