Café des Frères Prévert

The Café des Frères Prévert is a symbolic place in the museum, steeped in history. In 1951, the brothers Jacques and Pierre Prévert opened a cabaret on the ground floor of the current museum, and Pierre became its artistic director. It was called the Fontaine des Quatre-Saisons The artists' dressing rooms and the kitchen were then located in the vaulted cellars that are now home to the Café Prévert. During the work to set up the museum in the 1990s, Dina Vierny, with the help of the architect Pierre Devinoy, renovated the basements to their original size for the restaurant.

At lunchtime, the Café serves light meals (salads and quiches) and a wide range of delicious pastries.
