Located on B Deck, the Cafe was designed to look like a french sidewalk and even had real ivy growing up the walls. It had beautiful woodworking and even dividers to separate tables. Many little girls liked to play tea party and was a very famous place for conversation. There was cakes, tea, and other 'small snacks.' The lovely greenery was astonishing to most 1st class passengers especially when they found out that the ivy was real. It had authentic French Waiters and Waitresses in order to almost transport you to a Paris Cafe. It was one of the differences between the Olympic and the TITANIC. Most conversations happened there and at night, men liked to play cards and smoke cigars while feeling the cool ocean breeze. When the TITANIC struck an iceberg, men including Lucian Smith were playing bridge and they ran out on deck to see what happened. That is the last record of the Cafe.
