To start your day and brighten up the cold winter mornings, Paris Social Diary has selected five small Parisian petits déjeuners this season.
Impossible to talk about breakfast without talking Claus. This immaculate facade stashed near the Louvre hosts the reference of the new parisian breakfast. Minimum decor, neat counter, homemade pastries, and grocery products from around the world or the French countryside, the Bavarois Claus Estermann brings back the art of the day to start your day. And how does one begin at Claus? Pretty good, with toast signed Kayser and spreadable butter Echiré, then soak in boiled eggs. To be completed with a bowl of muesli or a cheese plate as in Berlin. A green juice will detox it all with a bit of good conscience.
This January 2016, Claus expands his restaurant by relocating its products in a grocery store just in the front.
Where? 14, rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 75001
New reference from the great Parisian hotels: the brand new Peninsula serves breakfast as great as its reputation. In the opulent lobby of the entrance or on the terrace “Kleber” when sunny, we dwell joyfully around a show in several stages: golden baskets mini pastries, hot drink rigor and variations of continental, asian —in vegetarian or pork bun dumplings and shrimp version, or AngloSaxon or the Benedict eggs revisited with Iberian ham.
The most pressing of us opt for the formula “affaires bien-être“: ultra healthy and ideal for a morning appointment.
Where? 19 Avenue Kléber, 75116
Opened this summer, the hotel property of Samy Marciano seems to be addressed to both foreign visitors and Parisians in search of lifestyle: neo-fifties decor signed by the pioneer of the genre Dorothy Meilichzon, menú orchestrated by the team of L ‘Experimental and, especially, the buffet-dejeuner become the favorite place for writers to go.
In the spacious room bathed in natural light through the canopy, you hesitate between emptying the generous sweet and savory buffet —with amazing cecina, homemade cakes and jam armada and experiment the menú of eggs cooked as you like and sent by a smiling and undermined service.
Where? 18 Bachaumont Street, 75002
Making vegetarian cuisine both cool and delicious: that’s all about chez Café Pinson. Now unavoidable landmark of Upper Marais that even carnivores crave. In a neo-Scandinavian décor orchestrated by Dorothy Meilichzon (The Beef Club, the Society of wines, Prescription), you end up your night down on the sofa and let yourself gently awakened by a latte with almond milk and a signed Coutume and with the drink of the day.
Anything else? A white-cheese granola not boring at all, the spread home some chocolate madeleines and a selection of pastries that brilliantly combine ingredients feelgood and sweet notes. Needless to say that everything is organic.
Where? 6, rue du Forez, 75003
A good name for this new spot found on Rue de Richelieu, where it rehabilitates the art of small-déjeuner in Paris. Rustic bakery decor, baskets croissants and toast smell, we are transported a few decades back: the time of french lazy-and-cozy.
Here, we will replace the flat white with a big black coffee in Verlet for dipping half a buttered baguette and spread with jam Francis Miot. On the buffet too, madeleines, cakes, pies and shortbread house to devour remaking the world in one of the plush chairs of the entrance.
33 Rue Richelieu, 75001
