Nothing is more fabulous than indulging in French patisserie staples like a croissant or crepe and to be sipping a glass of champagne. Here are the best breakfast places in Paris‘s luxurious 8th arrondissement.
Why not start your day with a historically inspired brunch, at Le Certa? Poets such as André Breton and Louis Aragon enjoyed the great food at Le Certa many years before us. Located near the Saint Lazare train station, it offers a calm retreat from the hectic shopping area. In a simple yet elegant setting, brunch is served from 11:30am until 2pm. The large range of sweet and savory options such as quiches or croissants are offered along with all kinds of tea and coffee creations.
Buddha Bar offers a huge variety of heavenly brunch items for a good price. This brunch is set up buffet- style and thus allows for any combinations that you desire. The buffet is filled with staples from all types of cuisines, ranging from the American-style bagel to the typical French croissant. In line with the Asian theme of the bar it offers dishes such as Shanghainese rice. The bar-like atmosphere adds an interesting twist to the brunch experience and also enhances the loungey feeling that invites you to spend all day there.
An icon among the brunch scene is the cafe by Ladurée, on the Champs-Élysées. The French luxury bakery has established itself through its intricately designed packaging and its colorful macaroons. Beyond the delectable macaroons, this brand offers a delightful brunch in its glamorous restaurant. The set brunch menu offers a selection of mini viennoiseries and French baked breads accompanied by scrambled eggs and two mini sandwiches, in addition to a yogurt and fruit salad. To finish, one receives a small selection of the iconic macaroons. But you might also be tempted to indulge in the extensive variety of tempting treats and cakes. Given the rather high price tag, one might consider this to be a treat not only in the food sense.
Renoma Café Gallery
Let’s say you are planning to have brunch with the family, but you find that kids aren’t particularly welcome in more upscale French restaurants. In this case, we highly recommend Renoma Café Gallery. It not only offers a separate menu for children but also activities such as face painting every Saturday and Sunday. The cafe itself is kept in an industrial-chic design and also offers a terrace that leads directly onto the famous Avenue George V. Renoma’s comprehensive buffet-style brunch offers anything from eggs in multiple varieties, to cereal or French toast, and even cakes or pastries for dessert.
