The main dining room was classic french in decor, with ornate pilasters and moldings.  

I got the famous Hot Chocolate to go with my croissant.  To be honest, I didn't find the hot chocolate to be all that special. Tasted like any other hot chocolate to me.

Verdict:  Definitely not one of my favorite cafes in Paris, but I am glad I tried it.  Now I can say, been there, done that.
