Cafes & Restaurants
There are no fewer than 15 cafes, restaurants, and takeaway outlets located throughout the Louvre, and the Carrousel and Tuileries gardens, offering both table service and takeaway food.
"Paul," a French-style bakery
Located in the Carrousel Garden, Paul offers a wide selection of sandwiches and pastries to take away. With a unique view of the Musée du Louvre and the Pyramid, the kiosk is the perfect place for a quick gourmet snack.
Amorino ice-creams, made in the purest Italian tradition, come in a range of original and sophisticated flavors and are served in small tubs or flower-petal cornets. Located in the Tuileries Garden, facing the octagonal basin, the Amorino ice-cream stall offers treats for all tastes.
Denon & Richelieu takeaway counters
These two takeaway counters offer snacks, for a quick "fuel" break before visiting more of the museum.
