10 good deals on quiet Parisian terraces

When the weather is nice and the air is warming up, we have all looked for the perfect terrace: Sunlit along a quiet street, hidden from the yuppies lined up in the sun. Usually, finding one is mission impossible. We combed the crowded terraces and once too tired to look any further, we sank into a seat in a shabby bar. But not to worry, Paris is filled with calm, quiet, and charming places. Here are the 10 addresses we have selected.
