Great place to go for breakfast, brunch, or lunch. Simply divine for a Sunday brunch and a great place to start your day. Coffee is good too (only batch brew or espresso in store - although beans for filter can be bought as retail bags)....More

For our last lunch in Paris, I really wanted another jambon beurre. Found this place not too far from our hotel in the 10th. Lovely atmosphere, fresh, fresh lettuce with light vinaigrette and the jambon beurre was exactly right. We also got oeuff and toast...More

After getting significantly lost in the area, we happened across this place for a spot of late lunch. My colleague and daughter chose the egg and toast, whilst I had a coffee and the croque monsier. All fresh and delicious. Waitresses were very good with...More

We were there for a quick bite and a coffee - the muesli was excellent and the sandwich was as required. The coffee was so good we bought some of their upmarket instant coffee. Not your supermarket fare but certainly worth it.

After wandering around Belleville for quite a long while in search of a good place to have breakfast, we found this little gem! Great food, great coffee, typical French bistro vibes with a bit of a hipster atmosphere - we loved everything about this place!

The usual tables and chairs that you'll find everywhere in Paris but light blue and prettier here... Nice looking people during the week-end, not too crowdy, you will always find a chair. Good quality products served on small plates (especially the chaource with salty cherries),...More

Close to the apartment where we are staying and after hours of walking the neighborhood, I stopped here for lunch. It is quintessentially French in appearance both inside and outside. It’s charming with the tables outside but I chose to sit inside because of the...More

Stopped by for an early morning coffee and cake. Was received with a "Bonjour" from all staff members. Opted for the Ethiopian filter. Service was friendly and pleasant. A real family and "quartier" atmosphere. Not too sure why some reviews are mentioning "long wait" or...More

The place is cosy and the staff is helpful. I tried a very good and fresh salad + a tipical "œuf à la coque, mouillettes au beurre". Unfortunately there were not many veggie options for a warm meal.

When you're in a new place, it's really nice when people ease you through the process of trying new things. That's what we experienced here. We loved everything about this place. The coffee is divine and the food is good. And the vibe - it's...More

Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point
of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.
Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and
friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the
bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to
drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days
lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and
concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may
