We walked along the banks of the River Seine and had views of the Eiffel Tower all the way. A Google search for ‘The best view of the Eiffel Tower from a cafe’ gave the Cafe Trocadero as the best result. We sat in a front row table so I could draw but the view came at a price! 6.5 euros per latte! Think the river view is better! And the coffee is a bit cheaper!
