The food scene in Paris is extraordinary. Whether you want French classics or trendier cuisines, you will have no problem finding what you’re looking for. The same goes for drinks. Paris has an incredible cocktail scene – from traditional French wine and absinthe to inventive cocktails and daiquiris.
For my last trip, I had quite the long list of where to eat and drink. In all honesty, it was a bit aggressive, and I knew that it would be a bit unrealistic to consume that much in three days, but I like to be prepared. (And it gives me something to look forward to on my next trip.)
Check out these five incredible places on your next trip to Paris:
For those looking for a takeaway coffee, specialty drinks, like matcha, or almond milk, Cafe Kitsune is the spot for you. Grab a coffee and wander around the Jardin du Palais Royal.
For you brunch fanatics, Claus is your spot. Offering pre-fixe brunch options, you’ll be able to enjoy egg dishes, patisserie, breads, coffee, and mimosas. They don’t take reservations, so be prepared to wait in line.
Le Café Plume
A classic Parisian cafe and bistro, Le Café Plume has a range of menu items that will make anyone smile. My order? Aperol Spritz, fois gras, and fries.
This is the spot for all you late lunchers. Open beyond the traditional Parisian lunch hours, Dépôt Légal has a divine spin on the croque monsieur. Get an apple juice to go with it. It’s absolutely mind-blowing.
Lulu White’s Drinking Club
If you’re looking for a high energy place to start or end your night (hell, even spend your night), Lulu White’s is for you. This Montmartre bar serves absinthe flights and daiquiris in addition to traditional cocktails all the while blasting classic American songs.
If you’re heading to Paris soon, make sure you try one or all of these places. And don’t forget to check out my recap of my apartment stay with Haven In. If you’re looking to rent an apartment in Paris, I highly recommend using their services.
