Luckily for all of us (and our stomachs), brunch is officially a trend in Paris! If you’re just excited about this as we are, you know there are an overwhelming amount of delicious options to choose from. Here are our favorite places to enjoy eggs, granola, and fresh orange juice on Sunday mornings.
Our Favorite Spots for Brunch in Paris
For a fabulous selection of eggs: Eggs&Co
Take a walk to the 6th arrondissement for a friendly and incredibly satisfying meal. If you’re a fan of eggs in the morning, you won’t be disappointed by the range of benedicts, omelettes, and fried eggs offered by Eggs&Co. Plus, if you have trouble choosing what you want to eat, don’t worry – you can get a salad, eggs, and a giant pancake! Don’t forget to take a walk through the Luxembourg gardens after brunch.
For an Australian inspired brunch affair: Le Loulou
You can find this bright, adorable restaurant in the heart of the Latin Quarter. On Sundays, you there is a food and jewelry street market just across the street. Le Loulou is gluten free and vegetarian friendly, so your whole party will be easily accommodated. I am personally a huge fan of their “famous” avocado club sandwich and their homemade frites.
For a familial ambiance: La Bécane à Gaston
This is one of my favorite restaurants in all of Paris for any and every meal. While you won’t get your typical eggs benedict or granola at their brunch, you will be offered delicious cheeses, pastas, vegetables, and meats. Every dish is fresh, homemade, and made with love. Take a trip to the 10th arrondissement to try this gem!
For brunch in an artsy, local neighborhood: Café Mericourt
Café Mericourt is located in the 11th arrondissement in the young Oberkampf neighborhood. Whether you want granola, green eggs, or pancakes, you will find your fix here. After a long night out, their breakfast roll on a brioche bun is sure to satisfy (and hopefully rejuvenate) you. They also have great vegetarian, dairy free, and gluten free options if you are trying to accommodate dietary restrictions.
For a jam-packed Lebanese brunch: Maison Issa
For an authentic Lebanese dining experience, check out Maison Issa. They have two brunch menu options for 20 and 22 euros. With these menus, you can try an assortment of mezzes and desserts, in addition to eggs or a main dish. This is also a favorite spot among locals if you are looking for a less touristic brunch experience.
For a colorful, Hawaiin style meal: Aloha Café
Aloha is a budget-friendly, fresh, and well-decorated spot to grab brunch with some friends. Their coffee, salads, tartines, sandwiches, and desserts are all delicious and incredibly fresh. For a warm island feeling in the middle of an often overwhelming (in the best way, of course) city, check out Aloha Café.
For a Latin-American buffet: Isana
Latin American food in Paris? Don’t discount it! The staff of Isana strives to create unique combinations of flavors and cultures in its adorable restaurant in the 9th arrondissement. Plus, what could be better than a brunch buffet where the food is constantly refreshed, unlimited, and full of incredible variety? Be sure to make a reservation!
For a Mediterranean inspired brunch: NOUS Restaurant
NOUS has four locations throughout Paris in the 2nd, 10th, and 9th arrondissements. Many dishes are made gluten-free and a majority of their products are organic and from France. They have a set 28-euro brunch menu that includes a hot drink, fresh juice, granola, classic brunch tartine, Mediterranean brunch bowl, and dessert.
