Sunday Brunch in the Marais

The culture of Le Brunch is still in its infancy in Paris. Diners are scarce and most cafés consider a cheeseburger to be an acceptable brunch dish (let’s not forget this is a city of people who frequently eat omelettes for dinner. It’s all inverted). So discovering Bar du Marché des Blancs Manteaux this morning was a godsend. Their 22€ brunch buffet features an eye-catching array of fruits: wedges of pomegranate, mini bananas, perfectly ripe strawberries, generous chunks of mango, papaya, kiwi, cantaloupe, pineapple. For hot foods there’s your standard scrambled eggs and bacon, and a do it yourself pancake station. There’s pasta salad with baby calamari, sliced tomatoes with seafood salad, finger croque monsieur sandwiches, and several quiches. There are cold cuts of roast beef, smoked salmon, and herring, and loads of cheese. It’s positively heavenly.

      You’re telling me. A bright colorful plate like that can alleviate even the dreariest of February doldrums.
