Café Figue – Paris

Sorry… This place is out of businesss…

One of the places I like to visit for the lunch, but also for their brunch currently. Warm welcoming, always a table available, and mainly: the chef’s ability to cook such a variety of different dishes.

Bululú Arepera – Paris, FRANCE – A new place to discover!

Front window

Paris is becoming more and more interesting about ethnic food. I appreciate to see this happen, and that traditional Brasserie is not the only option anymore. Bululú Arepera is a Venezuelan joint, offering the most famous local sandwich.

The Arepa is the traditional bread made with corn, it made and baked in house. You have choice between 7 different sandwiches between 6 and 8 euros. My favorite remain the plates served only during the weekend brunch.

Alain Milliat – Paris, FRANCE – Almost the perfect brunch

Finding a great Sunday brunch can be a hard game in Paris, this place has a great and fine option but also some annoying drawbacks. Alain Milliat is famous the fine juices and jam he produce.

Nanashi – Paris, FRANCE – Japanese inspired goodness

Located in the trendy neighborhood of “Le Marais”, this modern Japanese restaurant is like an oasis in the middle of a desert. Everything is fresh, organic and locally bought. You will immediately notice it when you enter inside their original location. Cooks are frequently leaving their kitchen to pickup fruit or veggies stored at the entrance. This create animation, and it is also a proof they press juice by order for example^^

Le Pain Quotidien – Paris, FRANCE – Great spot for a sunday brunch

Le Pain Quotidien is well known worldwide from several years now.  If you live int the US, you probably already know this place, since it is massively located in NYC and LA. Despite it is originally created in Belgium, Paris was not in the target of this chain until now. As of today they opened 8 stores in Paris and a new one is opening soon.

I chose to write an article about this place, because, I think it is a nice choice for a sunday brunch if you haven’t tried their menu yet. Continue reading

Breakfast In America – Paris, FRANCE – Time to review

The most authentic Diner in France is probably this one, I love the way they designed the restaurant front. It really feel like it is a copy from a downtown Diner of Manhattan.

Inside, you will find good atmosphere. Both the decoration and the staff are nice. The daily menu or Brunch set menu are nothing special: eggs, pancakes, hamburgers, wraps, milkshakes. Typical. Continue reading

COLOROVA – Paris, FRANCE – A pastry shop, a heaven

It looks like a jewelry store, but everything displayed is so affordable!

On a discrete street, this pastry shop with large windows, the place is inviting you to enter and discover their wonders artisanally made every day.

Fine pastries, well prepared. I have been to this place 5 times so far, never been disappointed about what i ordered. I love the chocolate used. Those pieces of sweet are nicely displayed, how to resist to the temptation ? Even the price is “okay”: from 1 to 6 euros. Continue reading

Coutume Café – Paris, FRANCE – Best coffee shop in Paris ?

One of the best coffee I ever tried in Paris.

Front Door

I’ve also been to Coutume Café for their brunch, which costs between 25 and 30 euros. I was seduced by the Detox Veggie Brunch, I really felt tired that day!

It is good to discover new drinks, “Le Cherbet” was totally unknown to me. It is in fact a lemon squash drink mix mixed with milk. Really efficient to make me feel more awake.

The weekend brunch is freshly made by order, despite the food looked so beautiful, colorful and appetizing….. I wasn’t delighted by the food. My mouth didn’t got the same appealing. Veggies are fresh, and well-selected.

Eggs & Co – Paris, FRANCE – Brunch every day !

Salmon Muffins

So far, the only place I know in Paris where you can brunch every day of every week!

The place is cool and the staff is fun. I think this place is really nice for sharing with a group of friends. But if you plan to come with them, book a table in advance for the weekend!

The dining rooms are small, same for the kitchen which I doubt the size is bigger than 20 square feet….!

Entrance

Entrance – Eggs&Co

Sincerely, I am not a fan. In fact their brunch is the only menu item. The restaurant specialize in eggs. They cook eggs any style you want.

I ordered the smoked salmon brunch and it is no surprise than eggs are perfectly cooked. The only thing about the food i can say is that the salmon was too salty.
