The famous Parisian restaurant Café de la Paix was opened on May 5th, 1862 by the Empress Eugenie and it is a symbol of the French capital, known throughout the world.
It is located in the IX District of Paris, right at the junction of the Bulevard des Capucines and the Place de l’Opéra. This magnificent building is the work of the architect Charles Rohaut de Fleury, who is also the author of the Grand-Hôtel de la Paix, of which this café was part of.
Its proximity to the Opera attracted many famous clients such as Piotr Ilich Tchaikovsky, Jules Massenet, Émile Zola and Guy de Maupassant.
At the Belle Époque, coffee customers included Sergei Diaghilev, and also the Prince of Wales and future King of the United Kingdom, Edward VII.
