The Paris Diaries: 8 places to get a delicious brunch in the city of light

In Paris, brunch is usually served only on Sundays and cafes and restaurants tend offer one option including all the food and drinks.

Some places work differently and don't require you to get the whole meal deal so check beforehand if you don't necessarily want to spend 25 quid in one go. 

As you would assume, brunch is quite popular in Paris so queues can be quite frightening if you show up to a trendy place at 1pm on a Sunday. But most of the time, the food is worth the wait! Here is our pick for the best places to go for brunch in Paris.

1. Café Marlette

Prepare yourself for a bit of waiting as Café Marlette is a very popular spot to get a delicious Parisian brunch. Coffee, juice, granola, cheese, ham, eggs, fresh bread, cake… for 25 euros you will be fed for the day (that's if you manage to finish your plate). This café also offers a range of cake mixes that are better than any homemade one so grab a couple boxes while you are there.

2. La Recyclerie

Built from recycled good which makes it look like a Pinterest board, this unique spot is ideal during a sunny day as you can enjoy your brunch plate outside, sitting by some old train tracks that are not in use anymore. La Recyclerie often hosts charity thrift sales at the weekend to the delight of all vintage lovers.

7. Le Trésor

Parisian are usually a bit wary of all-you-can-eat buffets as they tend to be a sign of lower quality. With its scrumptious yet refined food, Le Trésor is an exception to the rule. From croissants to fresh breads, hot dishes, eggs, cold meats, seafood or homemade cakes, you will enjoy the all-you-can-eat policy until the last bite!

8. BüL & bar à cannes

If you feel like a healthy and yummy brunch, BüL is the place to go. This small eatery offers gluten-free and mostly vegetarian options that won't make you feel like you are missing out on anything.
