3 stand-out places you have to go for brunch in Paris

A selection of the best brunches in the city of love, by someone who tried them all.

There is no doubt that Paris, and France in general, is one of the best foodie destinations – but there is so much more to it than fragrant baguettes and deliciously smelly cheese. Go on a culinary adventure and you’ll discover incredible looking desserts full of silky cream, mouth-watering quiches and elaborate dishes accompanied by rich and creamy sauces and, of course, the incredible amount of breakfast pastries and cheeses.

One life isn’t enough to eat them all, so what better than a long brunch to try as many as possible? We researched long and hard but here is Stylist.co.uk’s list of the best brunches in Paris. 

  • Le Bachaumont

    One of the most stylish new hotels in Paris – from the people behind London’s cutest hotel, The Henrietta – is also home to one of the most incredible brunches in town.

    A never-ending savoury and sweet buffet of plenty of fresh baguettes, eggs, salmon, fruits and of course all the French patisseries, desserts, traditional cheeses and cured meats.

    And if that’s not enough to satisfy your weekend hunger, you can also choose a hot dish and a side from the menu, which comes straight from the busy kitchen headed by chef Romain Le Cordorch. We recommend the gratin dauphinois – so French and ‘oh so good’.

  • Paperboy

    Probably one of the coolest cafés in Paris and definitely one of the best brunches, Paperboy is always worth a visit.

    From pastrami sandwiches and Japanese-inspired salmon tataki brioche to fruit-filled pain perdu and the classic avocado on toast – the menu is so full of delicious choices, it’s almost impossible to pick one dish.

    The icing on the cake is the location: nestled in the charming Marais district, Paperboy is the perfect start for a very Parisian Sunday

  • Holybelly

    Sometimes, Australians do it better and that’s what Holybelly’s owners Sarah and Nico must have thought when they brought the taste of Melbourne to Paris.

    Holybelly is a real Parisian brunch institution, with queues of up to a couple of hours on a Sunday. But is it worth it? Well, if you like fluffy and delicious pancakes and first class coffee, then yes, it really is.

    ‘Victims’ of their own success, they now have two different locations on the same street in Paris’s 10th district. The Holybelly 19 is cosy and elegant with delicious sharing plates while Holybelly 5 is the place to go for maple syrup-dripping pancakes and big tables for groups. Now, you just need to get in the line.
