Brunch in Paris

What better opportunity for Brunch than your special weekend away to Paris? When its just too early for lunch but you’ve snoozed the alarm a few too many times, brunch is exactly what you need. Here’s a guide to some of our favourite brunch spots in Paris.

Café Mericourt

 

 

Price: €€€€

This modern and minimalist brunch spot is kitted out with cacti and hanging wicker lights which makes us feel immediately comfortable and welcomed. The menu consists of staple brunch items such as a breakfast roll (fried egg, bacon and chili jam) and pancakes (honey and lemon ricotta with maple cream, pears, grapefruit, raisins and pumpkin seeds), however, their famous shakshuka is not to be missed (tomatoes, red peppers, onions, spices and harissa). With amazing coffee and a chilled vibe, €20 is the best value for money.

Plush armchairs, vintage-style porcelain and a touch of green give this brunch spot a “right at home” feel. €21 will get you: a choice of toasted bread with homemade or artisanal jams and butter, fresh juice and a hot drink, plus a seasonal salad with cheese, a perfectly cooked egg and a dessert.

La Régalade Saint-Honoré

 

 

Price: €€€

Bruno Doucet challenges what we would consider the typical brunch and has created more of a traditional lunch with a starters, main course and dessert menu for €35. The bar’s buffet of starters includes: mushroom and nut terrine, celery remoulade, crab with herbs, cooked whelks with homemade mayonnaise, leeks in a mustard vinaigrette and pesto-marinated scallops. Piling your plate high with these delicious starters may make it difficult to make room for the main plate but we recommend soldiering on and making it through to the dessert buffet which consists of: caramel rice pudding (La Régalade’s special), homemade madeleines, an array of cheeses, chocolate mousse, apple tart and red plum crumble. This delicious spread will leave you full to the brim but desperate to return.

Brasserie Thomieux

 

 

 

Price: €€€

When you think of a typical Parisian brasserie; its Brasserie Thomieux that comes to mind. Its deep red banquettes, walls of mirrors and wooden floors prove that this brasserie combines luxury and brunch in an elegant and tempting way. With Sylvestre Wahid running the show, we know we’re in for the brunch of a lifetime. For €49, we can indulge in a plethora of perfect pain au chocolats and croissants, smoked salmon, ham all accompanied by an assemblage of butters, jams and cheeses. If this wasn’t enough to fill you up, the menu includes fresh juice, a hot drink, eggs made as either: eggs benedict, an omelette or poached eggs in bourguignon sauce and a fruit salad. It is clear that Wahid takes brunch as seriously as we do so why not spoil yourself and eat like a King for the day!
