Refresh my memory about TGV at CDG

Next week I'm flying to CDG to meet 2 friends for a girls' trip to Provence. They fly out of Houston on Continental and I fly out of DFW on AA. They arrive a few hours ahead of me. We're meeting at the TGV for our train ride to Avignon. It seems like, if memory serves me correctly, there's a cafe/bar type place in the TGV area where they could wait, get a bite to eat, something to drink while waiting for me to arrive. If you're facing the trains/schedule board, is it immediately to the right and easy to find? or...am I confusing my train stations? Thanks, in advance, for help...

There's a place in one corner, easy to find, but I certainly could not explain exactly where.

When uncertain of a rendezvous somewhere, in a large area with lots of people running in every direction, I just tell the other person/people to be under the main departure board every :00 and :30 of the hour, and if desired, also at :15 and :45. That at least gives you the freedom to wander around some while you are waiting.

If you go to the top level of the building at the TGV area, there is a Patisserie Paul where you can get coffee and some good sweets.

First you descend on escalators from the main terminal down to the TGV station. The ticket windows are on your left when you get down there. Past them, to the right of them, in the left-hand corner of the space you're in, is a café. I believe there's another one on the right-hand wall.
