Salon de Thé
Our absolute favorite is the delicious tea salon of the Great Mosque, situated in the Latin Quarters of Paris. The patio of the courtyard unfolds a special charm with its blue mosaic tiles, the fig trees growing between the tables and the tiny sparrows whirling around. Waiters walking around serve peppermint tea, moroccan coffee and sweet pastries. There is also a restaurant in the spacious and comfortable interior, where oriental dishes are served for lunch and dinner.
After your meal, you can perform your prayer in Paris’ largest mosque, or relax in the hammam.
