Eduard Andre was a rich banker in 19th century, and collected a wide range of artworks and jewelries. Not only is it a beautifully decorated house, but also the romantic museum cafe is well known and quite famous. 



This place was previously used as the dining room of Edouard Andre and Nelie Jacquemart, and now is known as one of the most beautiful tea rooms in Paris. Keeping the atmosphere of that time, it is decorated with paintings, even on the ceiling, and gold furniture adding a special and luxurious ambiance.
