1st Timers in Paris / 2 nights in St. Germain

Hello CH'ers,
My family (3 adults, 3 elders) are travelling to France in 8/14 for a river cruise to Normandy. We have 3 nights total in Paris book-ending the cruise.
Night 1 (arrival from U.S.) - staying near Place de la porte Maillot & Arc de Triomphe. I have a recommendation that it might be a good time to walk/tour to Arc de Triomphe and then Trocadero; perhaps see the Eiffel Tower??

Nights 2 - 3 (post cruise) - staying in St. Germain / 6E on west side of Luxembourg Gardens. We'll likely be touring toward Notre Dame, Musee de Orsay in these days.

For those familiar with the neighborhoods, we'd appreciate recommendations for great cafes, bistros etc. Although some of us are foodies, others are distinctly "not". As a group we'd probably do better with a less complex menu - however I am very excited for "french cuisine".

Thanks in advance!
