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.
The Rodin Museum is located down the street from the restaurant at 79 Rue de Varenne, making it a great place to stop for lunch after a morning stroll through the museum’s gardens.
