The most Germanopratin: Les Deux Magots

Synonymous with artistic and literary life, Les Deux Magots is a real Parisian institution, both a mythical café and an authentic restaurant. And like many cafes, the legendary establishment offers a brunch formula the weekend. At Deux Magots, you will therefore have the choice between two options, the Brunch Saint-Germain (49€) and the Marine Brunch (59 €).

The most 'homemade': 46 & 3rd

Basically, Serra and Danielle shared the same passion for brunch. From this obsession was born 46 & 3rd, a coffee shop with a distinct New York spirit, nestled in the rue de Turbigo. The duo at the helm of the establishment has concocted a fine menu of homemade dishes (that changes every season) with well-sourced products. On the program: the best pancakes in Paris – both sweet and savoury! – but also crazy eggs Benedict, a superb belly bun sandwich and other avocado toasts… What's special about the establishment? You can have brunch there all week and opt for the very light formula at 26€ including 1 dish + 1 dessert + 1 juice + coffee of your choice… Moreover, we do not miss to taste their authentic coffee, poured by a Marzocco machine whose founders have carefully selected the beans, of Brazilian origin !
