If you feel peckish, no matter what the time of day, look no further than Le Pain quotidien. At this organic restaurant/bakery, you can enjoy recipes made with natural and regional products in a friendly setting. It’s like eating at a friend’s house, sharing your meal with your neighbours sitting comfortably around large communal wooden tables. As for the menu, organic dishes are served all day, including a 100% vegan selection. It’s the ideal place to brunch: bread is the house speciality, and you can sample it in a variety of ways, notably in the form of a grilled open-faced sandwich.

For delicious pastries, Aux Péchés Normands Bio is the place to go. Everything is homemade here, from the viennoiserie to the biscuits. They also do mouth-watering savoury pies, pizzas and sandwiches.

As for lovers of porridge (sweet or salty, cold or hot), they’ll be in their element at the BOL Porridge Bar. This pretty café with Scandivanian decor dishes up the perfect porridge: be it oatmeal, buckwheat or millet. Topped with fruit, nuts, hummus or roasted vegetables, every bowl of porridge is a medley of colours and flavours. In the 20th arrondissement, God Bless Broccoli serves artisanal pizzas made from organic French semi-wholemeal flour and rye leaven.
