There is nothing better than starting your day with a great meal before exploring the French capital. Here’s our favorite spots in Paris for breakfast.
Frenchie To Go
Food Stall, French
Frenchie To Go
If you’re craving a traditional American breakfast complete with bacon and eggs, Frenchie To Go is the perfect place for a bacon sandwich. Though it is usually difficult to find a table because they’re always so busy, you can just get your Frenchie order to go. Other menu highlights are the Eggs Benedict, bacon sandwich, the sticky buns topped with a bacon scone and some maple syrup.
9 Rue du Nil, 75002 Paris
Holybelly is perfect for a lazy Sunday breakfast and is sure to make your morning (and your eggs) sunny side up. Located near the Saint Martin Canal, Holybelly is one of the best spots for delicious food and rich coffee. Try the vanilla yogurt parfait with granola, pancakes with bacon, bourbon butter and maple syrup.
19 Rue Lucien Sampaix, 75010 Paris
Cafe, European, Vegetarian, $$$
If you’re on a diet and craving amazing food, Café Pinson is definitely the place for you. They only use organic ingredients and nothing they serve contains dairy or wheat, so this spot is perfect for vegans and healthy eaters alike. Don’t leave without trying one of the madeleines.
6 Rue du Forez, 75003 Paris
Anticafé is not your standard coffee shop. The concept for Anticafé was developed in Russia in 2011 and has now arrived in cities like Paris and London. Its unique yet simple concept is that instead of paying for your food, you pay for the time you spend at the café. If you’re just visiting the café (as they also offer a membership), the rate is 5 euros per hour or 25 euros a day. Whether your popping by for a quick visit or settling in for the afternoon be sure to try their caramel latte macchiato paired with something from the baguette counter that has unlimited bread with a variety of spreads.

As the name suggests, Pancake Sisters serve classic pancakes, but they also serve creative varieties that feature things like beef and fish. This cafe also serves ‘pansters,’ a unique concept that is like a pancake sandwich. Highlights of the menu are the Choco Tornado and the classic stack of pancakes the ‘Big Tower.’ Whether you are looking for a classic stack or something a little bit different, Pancake Sisters is the place to be.
3 Rue Lucien Sampaix, 75010 Paris
Bob’s Bake Shop
Located in the 18th arrondissement, Bob’s Bake Shop has some of the best bagels in town. The bagels are freshly made on site, so feel free to get a take away or enjoy your bagel on the shop’s sunny terrace. Try the bagel with cream cheese and lox and for something sweet the brownies and cheesecake are not to be missed.
