Here Are the Best Brunch Spots in Paris
It’s no secret that French cuisine is the envy of the world. An epicenter for all things delicious, Paris has impressed food gurus, master chefs, and wine connoisseurs for centuries. Lately, however, a brand new trend has taken the city by storm and it’s called: le brunch.
That’s right. Brunch is a big deal in Paris right now. Like a really, really big deal. But don’t take our word for it; you’ll just have to experience it for yourself! Here are 8 brunch spots in Paris that are sure to impress any palate:
1. Le Bistro Parisien – Brunch With a View
Are you looking for the best brunch near the Eiffel Tower? Nestled along the banks of the Seine River, Le Bistro Parisien should be at the top of your list! This charming waterfront bistro is a few meters away from the famous landmark, offering picturesque views from every table. A gourmet brunch is served Sundays from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. On the menu, you’ll find a wonderful selection pastries and bread, fresh fruit, deli meats, a starter, a main course, dessert, a hot drink, fruit juice or soda. There is also the option to add champagne.
For an even more magical experience, you can cruise while you dine! Climb aboard the restaurant’s all-glass boat and enjoy a relaxing riverboat tour along the Seine. Enjoy a fabulous brunch while you take in panoramic views of the city. It doesn’t get much better than that!

From the hip, minimalist setting to the friendly service, this is another one of our go-to spots for brunch.
The menu features a wide array of options, including acai power bowls, decadent pancakes, tartines, breakfast burritos, eggs benedict, and of course, the famous shakshuka. We especially love the chocolate pancakes topped with almonds, hazelnuts, and pralines. And you simply haven’t lived until you’ve tried one of the signature superlattes! Infused with cocoa, cinnamon, tumeric, matcha, charcoal or even lavender — you will be in heaven!
