A little slice of France in a small, cluttered cafe. Especially nice when the weather is warm, as you can sit outside and watch the passersby while happily chowing down on baguettes and fragrant coffee. I like it for the food, the proprietors and the regulars.

I don't really have one complaint about Cafe Lutecia. It has become a neighborhood staple over the 18 yrs that it has been there, with a very loyal and wonderful customer base.
Everything is homemade and made fresh, from the quiche to the soups, all the pastries, and the sandwiches and salads are made to order! you really can't beat the flavors and freshness!
The service is really friendly and the owners ARE french - SO authentic.
The place is very small, and on a saturday it fills up very fast. They are a bit understaffed when it gets that busy (as the owner/chef is the only person making the food back there) but the food consitently delivers and is worth the wait!
must eat:
any quiche, tomato bisque, provence salad, gaulois sandwich, pate and melted brie.

If ever I had mixed feelings about a place, it's Lutecia. Incredible serrano & brie sandwiches, wonderful soups. Keri is the greatest waitress I've ever known. However, things are inconsistent at Lutecia: my wife ordered the chicken soup w/ matzoh balls and got none of the latter and no explanation, even when we asked. The proverbial last straw was a quiche that came frozen the first time around and then soggy after a microwave thaw. They have a loyal following, but we don't go anymore.

Sitting outside, sipping a cold lemonade and just absorbing a beautiful afternoon, Café Lutécia can seem like the greatest experience in the world.
Tucked away near Fitler Square, Café Lutécia is a lunch gem only a short walk from Rittenhouse Square's more expensive alternatives. Modeled after a Parisian sidewalk café, it oozes simple charm. While small, their sandwiches always are made with fresh and tasty ingredients, and make a perfect complement to fresh-squeezed lemonade. Top off the meal with an espresso, and you have the makings of a wonderful afternoon.
NOTE- They're closed on Mondays.

Cafe Lutecia is my favorite spot in Philadelphia for breakfast or lunch. The staff, the food, the atmosphere, the coffee is all VERY french and friendly. You feel like you're in Paris. Sit at a table outside, sip your coffee, enjoy a great sandwich on nice fresh bread. I highly recommend you check it out. I did about two years ago and I have been going back ever since.
