Café des 2 Moulins, Paris

Café des 2 Moulins, Paris

The Café des 2 Moulins (French for "Two Windmills") is a cafe in the Montmartre area of Paris. It takes its name from the two nearby historical windmills, Moulin Rouge and Moulin de la Galette. The interior consists of a bar area and multiple small tables. The cafe has gained considerable fame since its appearance in the 2001 film, 'Amélie', in which it is the workplace of the title character. It has since become a popular tourist destination.

The cafe where Amelie works is located at 15 rue Lepic. The interior of Cafe des 2 Moulins is exactly like it was in the movie and the window on the side street is decorated with Amelie memorabilia. The photos of lead actress Audry Tautou smiles at us from behind the glass. The owner has sold the café after much thought under the condition that the interior remains intact.
