The 10 Best Places in Paris to Eat Quiche Lorraine
Some meals are so distinctly French, you can’t help but feel the urge to stuff your face with them while visiting the capital city. Escargots, steak tartare and Quiche Lorraine are some of the country’s top dishes, with the latter found on just about every bakery, brunch and cafe menu in Paris.
Quiche Lorraine gets its name from its home town, Lorraine, that was once a region on the border of France and Belgium. It is an egg, cream and pork-fat based quiche, traditionally reserved for special occasions.
Here is where to go the eat the best Quiche Loraine in Paris.
1. The Smith’s Bakery in Paris
The Smith’s Bakery sits on Paris’ left bank, and has obtained quite a bit of hype amongst the tourism community in Paris.
As with most “hype spots”, The Smith’s Bakery is nowhere near as impressive as some of the smaller patisseries in and around Paris. That being said, if it’s Quiche Lorraine you’re looking for, this is absolutely one of the best renditions!
Slices are generous in size; don’t make the mistake of sharing, you’ll be happy to eat your own one! Expect a queue out the door at the best of times.
ADDRESS: MONDAY TO Sunday — 8:45am to 11pm
ADDRESS: 12 Rue de Buci, 75006 Paris, France
Metro STATION: Mabillon
2. Good News Coffee Shop in Paris
A slice of quiche and a side salad is a popular lunchtime meal for Parisians. The Good News Coffee Shop is a charming spot for a hot coffee and a traditional Quiche Lorraine.
They don’t open on Mondays or Tuesdays, but the rest of the week they’re a southern hot-spot for brunch and lunch in the French capital.
ADDRESS: Wednesday TO Sunday — 9:30AM TO 4pm
ADDRESS: 27 bis Rue Mademoiselle, 75015 Paris, France
Metro STATION: Commerce
3. Le Loir dans La Théière in Paris
Back in the center, Le Loir dans La Théière is serving hot quiche and fresh cakes, seven days a week.
Alongside a tasty Quiche Lorraine option, they also do a range of vegetarian quiches made with vegetables instead of pork-fat. There is something for everyone at Le Loir dans La Théière; try to keep some space for desert!
ADDRESS: MONDAY TO Sunday — 9am to 7:30pm
ADDRESS: 3 Rue des Rosiers, 75004 Paris, France
Metro STATION: Saint-Paul
4. Loustic in Paris
Loustic is an ambient, retro space that feels a bit like stepping back in time. In my opinion this is the best Quiche Lorraine in Paris; flavor and experience combined.
Instead of slices, Loustic serve their quiches as individual miniature pies, baked fresh throughout the day. It’s rare that a quiche melts in your mouth quite like this one does.
They offer a vegetarian option for those who don’t want to eat meat.
ADDRESS: MONDAY TO Sunday — 8:30am to 6pm
ADDRESS: 40 Rue Chapon, 75003 Paris, France
Metro STATION: Arts et Métiers
5. Le Voltigeur in Paris
Just down the road from Loustic is a spot called Le Voltigeur. They’re a close second for the best quiche in Paris, and people flock here daily to try the famous Loraine.
What’s great about Le Voltigeur is that they open early and close late. You can enjoy a Quiche Lorraine as early as 8am or as early as 2am. Late night dining is something Paris is famous for, and Le Voltigeur is a charming spot to do so in.
ADDRESS: MONDAY TO Sunday — 8am to 2am
ADDRESS: 45 Rue des Francs Bourgeois, 75004 Paris, France
Metro STATION: Saint-Paul
6. Carette in Paris
Carette is the best spot for Quiche Lorraine near the Eiffel Tower in Paris. It sits right outside the Trocadéro metro station, where most people catch their first glimpse of the Iron Lady.
This little tea house has a traditional French menu including everything from crepes, to omelettes and of course, the Quiche Lorraine. I recommend ordering a side salad as the quiche doesn’t come with one and this simply makes it a more hearty meal.
ADDRESS: MONDAY TO Sunday — 7am to 11:30pm
ADDRESS: 4 Place du Trocadéro et du 11 Novembre, 75016 Paris, France
Metro STATION: Trocadéro
7. Stohrer in Paris
Enjoying a Quiche Lorraine in Paris doesn’t always require a formal sit-down meal setting. There are a number of patisseries around the city who offer the dish as a grab-and-go option.
Stohrer is a patisserie in the Sentier district. As far as take-away Quiche Lorraine goes, their’s is absolutely delicious. Rumor has it this is where Parisian chef’s grab a quick bite in the middle of their work days.
ADDRESS: MONDAY TO Sunday — 7:30am to 8:30pm
ADDRESS: 51 Rue Montorgueil, 75002 Paris, France
Metro STATION: Étienne Marcel
8. Le Petit Plateau in Paris
A few years ago I had my first visit to the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris. It was a cool and rainy day, and after seeing the grand cathedral I wanted nothing more than a hot slice of quiche and comforting glass of red wine.
Le Petit Plateau is within short walking distance of the Notre Dame, and has a quiche and wine menu that were made for each other – literally! If you’re lucky you’ll get a seat on the outside tables, rain or shine.
ADDRESS: MONDAY TO Sunday — 10am to 10pm
ADDRESS: 1 Quai aux Fleurs, 75004 Paris, France
Metro STATION: Cité
9. Los Filósofos in Paris
Los Filósofos is a Parisian hotspot in the trendy le Marais district on the right bank. Day or night you’ll find the permitter of Los Filósofos buzzing with tourists and locals, all enjoying the traditional menu and never-ending flow of wine & music.
They have a fabulous Quiche Lorraine on their menu. I recommend starting with their French Onion Soup and then working your way into the quiche — like a true Parisian.
ADDRESS: MONDAY TO Sunday — 9am to 2am
ADDRESS: 28 Rue Vieille du Temple, 75004 Paris, France
Metro STATION: Saint-Paul
10. Café de Flore in Paris
Cafe de Flore has a long running reputation in Paris as a celebrity hotspot and haute dining venue. Their Quiche Lorraine is often the subject of in-depth discussions as to where to find the best traditional dishes in the city.
This is another buzzing cafe that opens early and closes late, making for the prime spot for those late night quiche runs.
