For lunch on Boxing Day we headed to the Café des 2 Moulins which is at the junction of Rue Lepic and Rue Cauchois in
Montmartre. Its name linking
it to the famous windmill theatres of the area the Moulin Rouge and
the Moulin de la Galette. The café is now a popular tourist attraction
after gaining considerable fame from its appearance in the 2001
film, Amélie.This was where Amélie worked and was central to the
films plot.The current owners pay homage to their heroine and it was pleasing to see they treated the tourists who only wanted a photograph with the same affection as their drinking and dining guests.
|Lunch was tasty, good value and served by a pleasant current 'Amélie'.|
