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.

From starters to desserts, her inspiration has no limits. It is possible to taste here a Japanese speciality, and an African one the next day. I would like to say: always well done. Continue reading

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.

Pario – Paris, FRANCE – Fine French cuisine at a budget

Do we needed a Brazilian chef to come to Paris to show us we can have a traditional cuisine which is affordable ? So affordable that you wouldn’t go to eat at Chipotle anymore!

Pario is changing my mind! By the way, the restaurant name is the contraction of Paris and Rio De Janeiro. But the food is purely French. Continue reading

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

One of the best coffee I ever tried in Paris.

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 – 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.
