The morning after a hard night at Hemingway’s old St. Germain haunts calls for a sumptuous Parisian breakfast. We bring you the most mouthwatering breakfasts and brunches on this side of the river Seine (there’s a reason it’s called the Right Bank), around the Luxembourg Gardens and the Quartier Latin.

Located on the literary Place de la Contrescarpe (George Orwell and James Joyce had studios here) and overlooking famed foodie street Rue Mouffetard, this café has you covered for classic French breakfasts. Among fresh and flakey croissants, delicate compotes, and chocolat chaud.

Strada Café

The Strada is one of our favorite brunch spots in Paris. Their philosophy is simple: quality comes first. The coffee here is fresh-roasted deliciousness. Their affordable brunch menu, which includes a hot drink, orange juice, and sandwich, is served by one of the friendly English-speaking waiters.

Paris publishing powerhouse and iconic literary hangout Shakespeare and Co. has recently opened a delightful and much-anticipated café. Wedged into the corner of the block and overlooking a neighboring park, the Seine and Notre Dame, this beautiful café is perfectly positioned for a crisp morning breakfast.

Little Cantine

If you’re craving something stodgy for Sunday brunch, head to Little Cantine and you will never want to leave.These burgers are widely regarded as the best in Paris. Watch out for originals covered in toasted camembert, fig confiture, and walnuts, as well as artisanal beers hailing from Paris and Normandy.

Salle à Manger

Located at the tip of Rue Mouffetard, brunch-goers at Salle à Manger can enjoy a view of the charming market square while tucking into all kinds of bread, pastries and charcuteries, or indulge in smoked salmon, fromage blanc, and a cheeky morning glass of wine.

Le Comptoir des Arts

When entering this café, you have two options; stay on the main floor among cushy sofas and a hipster atmosphere, or head up to the next level for a more formal restaurant setting. Definitely try our favorite, the sesame-smoked salmon sashimi. Afterwards, head to the Grand Mosquée for some Moroccan mint tea or the Jardin des Plantes for some laid-back stimulation.
