I've been to this café in Montmartre several times now. The main reason is because it has a perfectly angled terrasse for catching the late morning and afternoon sun. A powerful second reason is because the staff are friendly. 
I was there on Saturday with a friend. We met for a coffee at 11.30am and when there was a lull in the conversation, we realised that it was nearly 14.30. The waiters had let us sit and chat for three hours even though we'd only ordered a coffee! If you're not aware of Parisian café customs, that's pretty much unheard of!
A few weeks before, Gail, of Perfectly Paris fame, and I had Sunday brunch here. She had Eggs Benedict and apparently the Hollandaise sauce was good and I had a salad which was packed full of chicken, bacon, blue cheese and avocado... very tasty. 
On another occasion, I had one of their burgers, which comes highly recommended. This was a bacon cheeseburger. It didn't last long.

The chips in particular are excellent. Fried until golden and crispy, lightly salted, and served in a steel flowerpot lined with the New York Times. Amazing!
For when the weather turns autumnal and even wintery, I reckon this place will come into its own even more. It has free newspapers, a well stocked bar with bottles of wine on ice, it even sells its own bread and patisserie so you can have a petit quatre-heures sitting in one of their stylish armchairs. Oh and that's not even mentionning the very popular happy hour in the evenings between 6 and 9pm!
