She sent us to La Jacobine on rue Saint André des Arts, near Odéon, for a very 6ème arrondissement approach to café entre copines.
While we had a bit of trouble finding it - probably because we were gabbing instead of looking for addresses, and also because I had forgotten that it was located in a covered passageway (so charming!), it was worth the search!
We both ordered the same dessert - crumble poire, bananes et chocolat (a pear, banana and chocolate crumble!) - and then threw a slight variation on the coffees: I got a café crème and she got the fancier cappuccino with a little shake of chocolate powder on top. When were were served, we knew we'd made the right choice - the crumble smell was trop, trop bon!

Mine stuck together a bit more - both were délicieux!

The servers were kind, the ambiance was cosy and the music was just right...we thoroughly enjoyed our crumbles and I will certainly be back. The prices were in line with the neighborhood norms - so, slightly high if you're just a girl from the 11ème, like me. But it was worth it! Crumbles - 8.50 Euros each (we could have shared though), and coffees - 4.50 Euros each.

Sidenote - I didn't test out les toilettes, but if it's in the 6ème, I'm thinking they probably pass the test!
