Need To Know

Important Information
What to Bring

Located in one of the most historical and picturesque passageways of Paris, La Jacobine is the place to go if you want the perfect bowl of French…errr…I mean Onion Soup (it’s already French!).

Walk along the late 12th century perimeter wall of King Phillip Augustus where parts of the wall are still present in some of the buildings bordering the passage. It’s one of the few passageways that maintained it's original cobblestones dating back to 1776 which also leads to the first, and oldest cafe in the world, Le Procope (founded in 1686!!).  If you decide to pop in, make sure to look out for Napolean’s hat which is on display.

In slightly more disturbing historical info, Passage du Commerce St. André is where the guillotine was tested and invented.

PS. After lunch you must try the hot chocolate at La Jacobine, it’s the best in the city!
