Eating Around Gare de Bercy



Bercy Cafe’s delicious version of Salade Perigourdine

 Bercy Café

On recent trips in France we have quite frequently traveled from, or to, Gare de Bercy—often on our way to Clermont-Ferrand. On a couple of occasions, we’ve arrived at Bercy with a number of hours to spare before our train departure, and it was lunch time.

The station itself has only a couple of take-away food stands, no actual café to sit down for a light meal. So, we wandered around the nearby streets and there are many cafes and restaurants.

We picked the Cafe Bercy pretty much at random the first time, as their menu had


Perfect with a small pichet of rose wine

good lunch salads. But, the salads were so good that we returned on another occasion.

So, if you are ever at Bercy Station and need a meal, try this café, just a 5-minute walk from the station platforms.

118 rue de Bercy,

Open 7 days a week, 5:30am-2am

Service continu 11:30am-midnight. Service continu (continual service) means they don’t have set hours for serving lunch and dinner, as many places in France do. It wouldn’t make sense to restrict meal times here, as their clientele must often be travelers like us.
