5 amazing breakfast places you should try in Paris
Croissants, pain au chocolat, baguette with butter and jam… if there is a country that is designed for breakfasts, no doubt it is France. Here, bakers wake up at 4 am to start cooking and have the very best ready for us when we jump out of our bed. Perhaps you already have something prepared at your hotel, but if you don’t, this article has been written for you! Also, if you feel a little peckish during the day, anytime during the day is a good time to have a coffee and a croissant. Plus, it is a good way to see Paris in a new light. In the morning, you get to see the Parisians going to work or having a morning jog, shops opening, the whole city starting to stir and rustle… So here it is! Read on and find out my list of the best breakfast places in Paris!
For an English breakfast: Holybelly
Craving for bacon and fried egg? Holybelly is one of the best breakfast places in Paris if you like the English version of this meal. In an American loft-style setting, you will be able to relish pancakes and homemade granola, but also more typically French products such as boudin noir sausage. A breakfast costs between twelve and sixteen euros. You will find this place at 5 Rue Lucien Sampaix in Paris tenth district. The closest metro station is Jacques Bonsergent on line 5.
For a hearty breakfast: the Frenchie to go
This modern bistrot in the heart of Paris second district had to be on our list of the best breakfast places in Paris, and apparently we are not the only ones to think that way…it is always crowded! So if the weather is nice and you are not against the idea of taking your breakfast away on some bench, you have to go there! English muffin and crispy bacon, scones and a killer homemade sticky bun. Honestly, leaving the place without buying a sticky bun is a little victory in itself! Just have a look…
A breakfast costs about 10 euros. The Frenchie to go is located at 9 Rue du Nil, you can get there by taking the metro and getting down at metro station Sentier on line 3.
For coffee lovers: Coutume Café
If you are not the type to be very hungry in the morning but you value a good coffee, Coutume Café is perfect for you. Indeed, the place looks more like the coffee laboratory than a restaurant. You almost expect the waiters to wear lab coats and safety glasses. So the food is very classic, the “trio de viennoiseries” with croissant is an excellent choice! Plus, the coffee that is roasted on site is perfect. The breakfast for a person costs about 10 euros. Located at 47 Rue de Babylone, take the metro line 10 or 12 and get down at metro station Sèvre-Babylone. Since it is found near the Invalides, I think you will enjoy this article about some of the best things to do between Invalides and the Eiffel Tower.
For a yummy brunch: Le Colorova
Located at 47 Rue de l’Abbé Grégoire in Paris sixth district, you will find the Colorova café. It is a bit more expensive but still had to be included among the best breakfast places in Paris for at least two reasons: the very colorful and cozy interior decoration, and the chef, formerly working at Plaza Athénée. You will have a wonderful brunch with salmon or tuna, avocado, pastries and jam for 26 euros. The closest metro station is Saint-Placide on metro line 4.
For a vegan breakfast: Le Café Pinson
If you are vegetarian, or simply like to start the day with something healthy and light, the Café Pinson is designed for you on our list of the best breakfast places in Paris. Soja yogurt, vegan butter (coconut and almond), soft tofu cream… Plus, the place looks very trendy. The place is located at 6 Rue Forez in the Marais neighborhood.
