Paris at brunch hour
Published on 19 October 2016 in gastronomy
As the world capital of gastronomy, Paris likes to incorporate new traditions that are in keeping with its gourmet lifestyle. That’s how brunch has become a staple of Saturday and Sunday morning in Paris over recent years. Now, choose your address!
A place with atmosphere
Brunch, is primarily a moment of gourmet freedom. You can stagger the times to suit your plans and you can mix sweet with salty or savoury with sweet. Hot drinks, cold drinks, or alcohol, everyone can select their favourites according to their desires. The Parisian atmosphere also adds more than a little charm and excitement to the whole brunch experience. Paris offers a multitude of possibilities when it comes to places to brunch. Some like the very New York style Flat Iron and the Australian Holybelly are located in the tenth arrondissement and they carefully cultivate the Anglo-Saxon roots of this tradition. The Blue House, although still in the tenth, and the Zig Zag Café in the fifteenth arrondissement straddle the map between Paris bistro and the American diner breakfast.
All the flavours of a delicious brunch
Again, when it comes to flavours, the possibilities are endless! For a brunch with a decidedly Italian flavour, Nolita in the elegant eighth arrondissement is a safe bet. It’s a dream setting for the eyes as well as the taste buds and you’ll find it hard to choose between the shredded Parma ham, bresaola, fresh mozzarella, exceptional tiramisu and sweet panettone. The Holybelly invites you to discover one thousand and one ways to enjoy an egg, while the pastries of the Zig-Zag Café, served on an attractive slate sub-dusted with icing sugar recall the sweetness of a chocolate croissant fresh from the oven. For others the cakes at Paperboy in the eleventh arrondissements will become treasured memories!
Brunch is a great Parisian tradition. Choose your preferred address and prepare for a few moments of pure pleasure.
