Great Inexpensive Paris Lunch

If you find yourself wandering the Latin Quarter around Luxembourg Gardens in Paris and wish you could find a place for a light, tasty and inexpensive spot for lunch
we would recommend La Maison des Tartes at 67 rue Moufftard, the market street that runs south of the Pantheon.
This tiny restaurant and take-away spot offers a nice selection of savoury and sweet pies from which to choose at prices that are hard to beat in this town.
We have dropped by twice so far and there was a free table both times.
We had the lunch special -- a large piece of savoury tart with green salad and a glass of excellent red wine for five euros each. Can't beat that!
Madame is charming as is the little dining area with white-washed walls and a beamed ceiling.
We were both well satisfied
by the large piece of chèvre and spinach pie and simple salad at that price.
We'll certainly drop by any time we're in the neighbourhood and suggest that you give it a try!


  1. That seems a very good lunch option for the egg-eaters!
    I think I was there in 2012 ...

  2. We love the place and the lunch special just can't be beat, Lisa.
