Bad news at this address. This kid-friendly place is now closed. 🙁


I just found an absolutely unique place in the 9th: “une Souris et Des Hommes“!
It is a pastry-bookstore- tea room, where you can savor on site or to take away pastries (logic you might say) but also sandwiches with excellent homemade bread or homemade ice cream around a good tea.

They also offer brunch on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays. Everything is homemade, seasonal and fresh!
It is also an ideal place for parents who wish to take a break to taste in family! There is enough space to install your stroller and a small step is available to your child in toilets so he could wash his hands before eating his madeleines with Alain Milliat juice.

As passionnates, they love to share their art and knowledge. With their courses every Tuesday at 18h (in English too).
Or they give you some advises to buy the ideal book in their bookstore. Yes, all of these beautiful books tidy and self service into the tea room, beside the couch corner are new and for sale. So do not hesitate to ask, there are also book for children! Beware of little hands that can get dirty books for sale at their taste!

If reading this article made you salivate here is the address to succumb to your turn:

Une Souris et Des Hommes 17 rue Maubeuge 75009 Paris 09 81 76 17 74
Open Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 12h – 19h Saturday and Sunday 10h – 19h
