Café Méricourt

Cafe in Le Marais, Ménilmontant & Belleville

With a pretty peppermint-green façade and airy, plant-filled interior, Méricourt is a delightful backstreet find. Breakfast (honey-ricotta pancakes with roasted pineapple, spinach-wrapped eggs with feta, congee rice porridge) is served until 3pm, with lunch options from 11am. Parisian-roasted coffee, homemade ginger beer and lemonade, natural wines and Bloody Marys and Mimosas make it easy to while away a few hours.
