Weekend brunch in Paris is the best…
My girlfriends and I met at Treize (A Baker’s Dozen) for a leisurely brunch around 2 pm. This charming little hot spot is located in a hidden courtyard in the Saint Germain Des Pres area. Closed on Sundays… so Saturday it was!
The owner and operator of this quaint eatery is Laurel Sanderson… an American. She is a baker and makes the most delicious cakes in addition to the lovely brunch dishes. Brunch dishes include Chicken and Waffles, Omelets, Artichoke Pie or Beef and Butternut Pie, among other specialties…. I wanted everything on the menu!
I settled on the loaded Princess Omelet and took bites of my friends dishes. Chicken and Waffles with Peaches and Syrup, plus a platter of quick breads including Cornbread, Apple-Gingerbread, Chocolate Hazelnut Muffins, Buttermilk Biscuits, all served with a delicious Pear Compote.
The food was delicious… all organic and natural. Everything on the menu is sourced sustainably. Brunch runs around 30 E… but you get a fresh juice, large dish, coffee or tea and an assortment of quick breads. We also got a glass of Champagne, bien sur!
We were then treated to a slice of cake on the house. It was chocolate with mocha buttercream. YUM!
This little restaurant is so incredibly quaint and it’s one of those restaurants you feel as though you are in someone’s home. Laurel is also running the place and is very friendly. Obviously she is American… so perfect english is spoken. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone wanting a good brunch in Paris. Make a reservation! It’s packed.
The menus are on muffin tins 🙂 I love the vibe here.
Yes, does anyone see the Boulevard cookbook? My old restaurant 🙂 Oh memories flash back to me of being a pastry chef in San Francisco…
Now I am in Paris. Surreal and could not have imagined!!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN! Yes, the french actually celebrate this as well… I am going to go live it up in Paris tonight… Costume remains to be decided.
Have a beautiful weekend Everyone!
