L’Impérial Rivoli

I came across the L’Impérial Rivoli café restaurant by chance while walking down Rue Rivoli this past fall. Rue de Rivoli is a very prestigious street in central Paris – named to celebrate one of Napoléon Bonaparte’s victories in Italy against the Austrian army.

The black and white exterior decor of L’Impérial Rivoli immediately stood out to me and I sat down for a coffee and croissant a few days later. A laurel wreath made from a black and white floor tile mosaic lines the covered passageway – making it a great place to stop during rain or shine.

Sitting directly across from the Jardin des Tuileries, the café is very well positioned in the 1st arrondissement of Paris.
