They have two small tables right on the sidewalk. It’s a great spot to sit and admire the view. Piatt Park lends to the atmosphere with its gorgeous iron archways, walkways and greenery. It really is one of the best kept secrets downtown. cafe de paris cincinnati I asked the very friendly Erin what I should have and she recommended a number of things from their menu. I settled on the Chicken Salad with melted brie. And it was a great choice. The baguette (from nearby Servatii’s) was toasted to perfection. And it had a great ratio of chicken salad to bread. I don’t know how many times I’ve had a chicken salad sandwich with large scoops of chicken salad falling out the bottom. This one was just right. The sandwich came with sweet pickles and you can order a side salad or pasta salad (at an additional cost). I opted for just the sandwich… and that was plenty.  And the prices were very reasonable (especially for downtown).  My bill was $10 which included my sandwich, a drink and a generous tip. cafe de paris cincinnati Cafe de Paris offers both breakfast and lunch.
