Ok so I know its really touristy to go here but my gf was convinced that it would be good, while I was convinced that it would be more disneyland paris than montmartre chic.
Alas, as always, my gf was right. We got a nice booth in the corner and got 2 cafe viennoise. They were very reasonable (€4,40 each) and much better than the more expensive ones we got at cafe des flores.
Also interesting was that there was a nice mix of tourists and locals, making a cool atmosphere. Also, our waitress was lovely making the cafe even better.
If you're ever in Montmartre then drop in and pretend that you don't really care about Amelie, when in reality you're giggling like a little girl about seeing the table that Amelie sat at.

OK, Ok, it is now a tourist trap, due to Amelie, but I am so glad I went.
A nice mixture of locals and tourists, on the day I went (a Wed afternoon). Staff were very friendly and suffered my schoolgirl French, and nicely, didn’t make pained expressions nor answer me back in English (at which point I usually think I have failed! ;))
I ordered a tagliatelle with mushrooms which was delicious, plus a glass of rosé and just sat for a good hour soaking up the atmosphere and watching locals pop in and out for espressos.
To me, it didn’t really come across as a major touristy place at all, and I thoroughly recommend it, Amelie fan or no Amelie fan!
“Les 2 Moulins” was a bar-brewery which was more in the area at the bottom of the Rue Lepic. A loyal customer base attested to the social role of the place. The patrons were the bosses, after all, causing more than some-but attention, as it is in Marseilles, eh!
And then the cinema and theatre director Jean-Pierre Jeunet made our coffee-tobacco, instead of the film “Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amelie Poulain” (2001) to phenomenal success.
Audrey Tautou became the seveuse worship.
But time has passed and “le 2 Moulins” has maintained its rank and not lose your head. Proof: coffee is 2 €! It is still a note!
the place has remained with his charm before, including its brass and his look of Parisian cafe.
On your to do list for a trip to Paris there is of course the visit of the famous coffeehouse from the movie “Amelie of Montmartre”. But you have to know that it was in that movie as many changes have been made to it for the making of the film.
Nevertheless the coffeehouse is nicely located and serves the typical Parisian dishes which are great not too expensive.
Definitely not a tourist trap.
