Fodor's Expert Review Café Luxembourg
One of the city's top grand cafés, Luxembourg has a stately interior and a view of a bustling square, both of which are excellent for people-watching. Lunch, when the restaurant fills with locals and tourists, is the best time to come. The classic café menu includes terrific soups and salads and excellent Holtkamp krokets (croquettes, here with a cheese, shrimp, or veal filling). The "reading table" is democratically packed with both Dutch and international newspapers and mags.
