Victor Hugo’s House
Maison Mulot opens Café Mulot
The Maison Mulot, pastry shop, bakery and caterer of the mythical district of St-Germain-des-Prés (76, rue de Seine), now has a place to express itself: Café Mulot. This café-restaurant and its romantic garden is now located in another historical district of Paris, the Place des Vosges, in the heart of the Marais, and in another cultural place: the Home of Victor Hugo located at 6, Place des Vosges.
Fabien Rouillard, pastry chef from Lorraine, chef-owner of the Maison Mulot since 2016, has designed this place as a romantic setting and a lively place at the same time, as a tribute to Victor Hugo. We are very pleased to welcome you to the Museum café at the Home of Victor Hugo!
Artistic Inspiration Directly from Hugo
During the visit to the Home of Victor Hugo, we rediscover this great man of letters’ world: artist, craftsman, designer, and collector all at once. Thus, the architecture and decoration of this place in the heart of the Marais, were imagined by the agency NeM (Niney and Marca Architects). The artistic duo Florentine and Alexandre Lamarche-Ovize created for Café Mulot custom-made objects (wall sconces, ceramics), and a wall canvas as if sketched in charcoal, which reinterprets "The Sea Workers", a work by Victor Hugo.
A Place to Travel To
A new, unusual Parisian address, a peaceful and almost secret refuge, which extends the journey to Guernsey alongside Victor Hugo. You will have the pleasure to taste a nice salad, a pastry, a kouglof, or simply a coffee. And why not a glass of champagne to celebrate the suspended time of your best moments in this magical place?
This place is accessible to all through the magnificent door of the Museum, even for the curious.
"Café Mulot" rhymes from now on with ... Hugo.
