Café Mulot

© Jean-Baptiste Millot

Café Mulot, a new Romantic address

A new Parisian address with a difference. Sitting in this peaceful refuge in the heart of the capital, you could imagine yourself in Guernsey alongside Victor Hugo. Enjoy a beautiful salad or a pastry, a Bundt cake or just a coffee. Or why not sip a glass of champagne to celebrate a special moment, suspended time, in this magical place?

The garden can be accessed through the magnificent door of the Museum. (Museum entry not required.)

“Café Mulot” now rhymes with... Hugo!
