We stayed a few doors up from Brooks and visited every morning, food and coffee are superb and very well priced, the bagels are a meal on their own! Highly recommend and the wee woman who works / owns the place was lovely!! 10/10 #GAWA

We were passing and popped in here for lunch, the counter is full of fresh salad and you can tailor make your sandwich, or bagel 'Subway' style or simply have a salad bowl if you prefer. You can takeout or eat in, they serve bottled beer too! Expect comfy leather sofas and modern deco inside, with outside seating options too.

This place was pretty close to our hotel, and after finding it on TA we decided to give it a try - specially since the Paris breakfast is usually just a coffee with juice and a croissant, it was nice to have something else. Located next to Republique, it was easy to find. We did think twice before entering since... More

By far the best place we visited for breakfast while recently staying in Paris. The croissants and other pastries were fresh and a far cry from the horrible shop-bought we have to contend with at home! The language barrier wasn't a problem, unlike others are suggesting - I managed to get by with my GCSE conversational French! The staff did... More

This was the best place we found close to our hotel for breakfast. We sat outside and the breakfast of pain au chocolat, croissants and coffee was fresh and tasted very good. Would recommend.

I had a great baguette, tea and a coconut dessert. My partner had a bagel, fruit salad and juice. The language barrier was stressful but it's our fault for not being well prepared with our food ordering in french. The cafe is clean and bright.

Menu has bagels, salads, quiches and pastries. Unlike other restaurants, the entire menu was available in the morning, and we waited only a few minutes until all the vegetables were chopped. The problem was that the seller did not know a word in English, and it was difficult to understand us. Each of us ordered a bagel breakfast, including bagels,... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris.

The colder days lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may explore hidden gems down nearby streets, from local bars to futuristic architecture.
