When dining with kids in Paris, when you decide to eat is almost as important as where. Most restaurants are not open before noon for lunch or 7 p.m. for dinner.

However with lots of cafes, bakeries, boulangeries, cheese shops and grocers, you’ll even find lots of options for on-the-go food or picnics. This will allow you to stick to eating schedules or please everyone’s palate.

Other options include:

Café Breizh – Great for crepes

The Marché des Enfants Rouges – Food court

BHV department store – Food court

La Bossue –  yummy French treats

Frenchie to go – casual café or to-go.

Bread and Roses – Close to  Luxembourg gardens

Angelina –  Traditional and a must.

Zia – A little café idea for parents. Situated off the Champs de Mars.

Les Maquereaux – Kids can scoot around the terrace. Close by, one can also find playgrounds and climbing walls.

Marché Saint-Quentin – An ideal stop if you’re looking for picnic supplies.

TRANSPORTATION

Getting Around

Subway/Underground

Whilst the subway is excellent and very well connected, for families with prams it may not be easy. The is the same with most subways anywhere. Lists aren’t available in all stations. 

Bus  

Very well connected and extensive network including reserved seating for strollers. You may download the RATP map to easily find bus stops around the city and their schedule.

Cab/Taxi

We heard of https://www.babycabs.fr/ who offer family friendly set up in their taxis

Insider Tips

The Louvre

The Louvre is easily accessed allowing for smooth navigation with stollers/prams.

Babycarrier

It may be a good idea to pop a baby carrier in your suitcase since some places aren't accessible with a stroller and some streets are busy & narrow.

Shopping Centre Nursery

The Galeries Lafayette have a nursery with changing tables, a sink, microwave and a feeding area.
