Now very much in vogue, brunch has captured the hearts of the Parisians. If your idea of bliss is taking your time and indulging in something delicious during mid-morning, here is a compilation of our favourite places in which to enjoy a fine brunch in Paris. All, of course, are within easy reach of the Hotel Les Tournelles. Bon appétit!
T Cup, an English style family tea room
Both chic and whimsical, the T Cup has combined inspirations and the result is both amazing and adorable. Boasting a selection of teas that will delight even the most demanding palates, the T Cup is located on the Rue des Minimes, in the heart of the Marais district. Perfect for an English brunch, the place offers homemade scones, various jams, finger sandwiches and cakes in surroundings with more than a hint of Lewis Carroll. Family recipes bring together English and French cuisine. Don’t miss it!
Chez Joséphine, traditional gastronomy in the spotlight
Located just a stone's throw from the Place des Vosges, in the historic square of the Sainte-Catherine market, the Chez Joséphine restaurant delights lovers of traditional French gastronomy. Here you’ll find dishes made with the very freshest of ingredients, from hot goat cheese salad to duck breast to burgers, duck confit or salmon tartare. On the dessert side, there is a number of sweetly tempting options; a changing selection that will set your mouth watering!
Savannah Coffee, for an American style brunch
Even though it is situated in the heart of the Marais, with its exposed brick walls, comfy armchairs and soft lighting, Savannah Coffee is infused with a distinctly New York vibe! The Sunday Brunch attracts the capital's gourmands with its generous portions and authentic character. Those looking to satisfy a healthy appetite will opt for the classic burger, with cheddar, bacon, a fried egg and fried potatoes. Otherwise, you might want to try the pancakes and fruit, just as delicious!
Cafe Martini, for an Italian style Sunday
Located in the Place des Vosges, this small Italian restaurant offers a hearty brunch featuring all the great classics of Italian cuisine, including pasta, lasagne, fried fish, seafood, tiramisu and more. Cosily appealing, with large sofas where you can curl up, dark wooden shelves, hammered metal table tops and exposed brick walls, Café Martini has an atmosphere that makes you feel right at home and offers a touch of la dolce vita in Paris. Like the other establishments mentioned above, the Cafe Martini is only a few minutes away from the Hotel Les Tournelles. Our receptionists will be happy to reserve a table for you, as these addresses, although relatively little known, are hugely popular with Parisians!
