The Café Mollien Denon wing

Indoors

The Café Mollien, at the heart of the museum on the first floor of the Denon wing, opens onto the French painting galleries. The terrace, open in the summer, overlooks the Cour Napoléon and the Carrousel Garden. It is an ideal spot for a quick lunch or a coffee break.

A short walk from the Mona Lisa, the Café Mollien is perfectly integrated into the surrounding gallery space, welcoming visitors throughout the day with a selection of light snacks. Set in the heart of the Pavillon Mollien, built by the architect Hector Lefuel, the Café Mollien is located beneath Charles-Louis Müller's painted ceiling, "Glory Distributing Palms and Crowns." The cafe offers a chance to relax, surrounded by ornately carved caryatids and atlantes.

With a terrace overlooking the Cour Napoléon and the Carrousel Garden, the Café Mollien offers a unique perspective on the museum.
