Top 5 places for brunch in Paris

Paris is a much loved destination for foodies, as we previously looked at in a post dedicated to gastronomic affairs. Although brunch is a very American idea, it has prevailed over in Paris too, becoming a popular weekend occasion as any. We wanted to help you find the best spots to indulge in this leisurely routine. No matter the budget, there's something for everyone, even vegetarians! Un Dimanche a Paris 4-8 cour du Commerce Saint-André, 6e Calling all chocolate lovers, make sure this is on your radar. A restaurant dedicated to chocolate, cocao makes its way into most dishes served at this concept store. For brunch, there are set menus to choose from ranging in price, but it's well worth it if you appreciate the environment and high standard of service. Whether your tipple is champagne or juice for brunch, you'll also be served the best hot chocolate in Paris, too. We recommend you head over to their chocolate shop next door for some rich takeaways before you leave. Le table du huit 8 Rue Jean Goujon, 75008 Paris 8ème If you like your chic and sleek then this place is one for you. Redesigned by Maison Martin Margiela it's a stylish take on brunch that includes the more modern, healthy dishes than your typical syrup covered blueberry pancakes. Think feta salads and quinoa tabbouleh, with signature omlettes. But don't worry there's plenty of sweet things too, including cakes and jams - even cream and lemon meringues. Delicious, and the perfect place for a modern, romantic breakfast for two. Casa Lola 12 rue Francœur, 18e Some something a little less flashy, Casa Lola is the place to go for an informal, quick and easy brunch. With a choice of sweet or savoury (we prefer sweet!) you'll be given jams, lemon curds, chocolate spreads and caramel with salted butter, followed by breads and cakes. Choose from freshly squeezed juices or a strong coffee if you need a pick me up. Should you want to go savoury, you can feast on onion rings, coleslaw and bagels with cold meats - great after a late night out. Bioboa 93 rue Montmartre, 2e If you believe in healthy eating even when you're away on holiday then perhaps you should make a beeline for Bioboa. A self-acclaimed 'food spa' everything served is fresh and organic. God forbid anything should be tinned or contain preservatives; at least you'll know what you're putting in your body is 100% pure. Don't expect to be gorging on buttery pastries or thick creamy lattes, but if you like things refined and clean then here's your spot. Try their poached eggs or tofu burgers and sip on a kale smoothie - it's one way to re-energise on a Sunday! St James Albany 202 rue de Rivoli, 75001 Paris 1e We love the area around the Louvre and Tuileries Gardens so much that we were thrilled to find out about St James Albany which is situated between the gardens and rue du Faubourg St-Honoré. You don't need to be staying at the hotel to dine in their restaurant, so we recommend you try it out. Expect high quality food and service - after all it is rated 4 stars - and tuck into blinis, Swedish breads, salmon as well as mini macarons, mini pancakes and mini burgers for the kids. The best thing about this place is that you can sit outside in the terrace-come-courtyard. Now you'll feel truly Parisian! Twinkie Breakfasts 167 rue Saint-Denis, 2e If you can't hold out until the weekend for your brunch kick, Twinkie Breakfasts has your answer. They loved their weekend habit so much that they made in into a business, serving it 7 days a week for their fellow brunch fiends. Think New York loft style meets IKEA and you've can image the set up. They don't serve your typical brunch either, instead you can choose from a range of breakfasts including American, French, Scandinavian and Greek - which shun all stereotypes with a Twinkie twist on each. Best visited mid-week when you won't be fighting over tables (it's that popular).
