Start your weekend right with a long, lazy brunch in the French capital. Here is our pick 10 of the best brunches in Paris

Eggs & Co. 11 Rue Bernard Palissy, Paris

Whether you like your eggs poached, scrambled, fried or made into a scrummy omelette, they’ll be cooked to perfection at Eggs & Co. Located in the heart of St-Germain-des-Prés, the rustic restaurant has a farmhouse feel; wooden beams, wicker baskets and chairs inscribed with typical French hens’ names imbue the space with a cosy countryside ambience.

Frenchie to Go, 9 Rue du Nil, 75002, Paris

French chef Gregory Marchand spent time working in London and New York before opening his popular bistro, Frenchie to Go, and from the menu it’s clear that he took what he learnt from both countries home to France. Brunch offerings include eggs benedict with pastrami and an English scone with bacon and syrup. A ‘Happy Morning’ option consists of a hot drink, freshly-squeezed orange juice and a pastry for €10.

Café Pinson, 6 Rue du Forez, Marais, Paris

Paris is not the best place to be if you’re watching your figure (who can resist all those pastries?!) but thankfully, Café Pinson specialises in organic, healthy food without compromising on taste. Founded by Agathe who had a passion for healthy living and gourmet food, the restaurant’s motto reads, ‘Bio. Healthy. Made in Paris’; a logic that can be found in its range of juices and organic veggie dishes that are perfect to kick-start your day.

Pancake Sisters, 3, Rue Lucien Sampaix, 75010 Paris

Pancakes are fun to make and they are even more fun to eat, especially at Pancake Sisters, a minimalist space brightened with pops of pastel colours in the 10th arrondissement of Paris. Have them with whatever you fancy, from bacon and eggs to whipped cream and chocolate. A slap-up weekend brunch menu comprising a hot drink, fruit juice, two savoury pancakes and a trio for dessert costs €23.50. There is a lighter option for weekdays priced at €19.50.

Café Marlette, 51 Rue des Martyrs, 75009 Paris

Exposed stone walls, wooden tables and the smell of fresh-baked bread give the hip Café Marlette a welcoming, homely feel. The brunch menu includes deliciously rich cakes and breads, crunchy honeyed muesli and hot scones. If you’re after something more substantial, the savoury tartines on crunchy bread or the boiled eggs with seasonal vegetables, ham and cheese are a good choice. The two brunch menus on offer are both priced at €24.90.

Holybelly, 19 Rue Lucien Sampaix, 75010, Paris

There’s normally a pretty long queue of customers waiting outside Holybelly (there are only 49 seats and they don’t take reservations). With a motto of ‘it’s good because we care’, Holybelly serves home-made food with fresh products and is famed for its excellent coffee sourced from Belleville Brûlerie. The breakfast menu offers sweet options including a stack of pancakes or black rice porridge but you can also go for their ‘eggs and sides’.

Claus, 14 rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 75001, Paris

It’s no surprise that Claus is the creation of a former fashion PR; beautifully presented cakes and a picture-perfect shop front make it an Instagrammer’s dream. There are the traditional French options of pastries and bread on offer as well as a German-style dish of cheese, hard-boiled egg, ham and fruit. Once you’re finished eating, peruse the selection of jams, biscuits and other condiments that you can buy to enjoy at home.
