As a foodie, my initial question when traveling somewhere new always is “where can I go for breakfast/dinner and what do I have to eat while exploring the city”. When I did ask this question on my Instagram Stories a few weeks back for my upcoming trip to Paris, however, people were very reluctant to answer. At first it seemed as if Paris wasn’t going to satisfy my culinary needs and so my friend and I searched the internet for a useful Paris Food Guide. And naturally, we did find a bunch of places to visit. So here’s what we tried out, what we liked and what we would totally recommend.
Paris Food Guide, or, Where to eat in Paris
Check out my hotel review of the 25 Hours Hotels Terminus Nord for a detailed review of the NENI restaurant as well. In short: it’s absolutely amazing!
• NENI Paris @ 12 Boulevard de Denain, 75010 Paris, France
Pink Mamma is mostly known for its incredible interior and Instagram friendly décor. However, they also serve incredible food, among one of the best Pizzas I have ever had and a lush tiramisu. With 13€ the Pizza certainly is not one on the cheaper side. However, it most definitely was one of the best I ever had.
Make sure to be there early for a good spot! We queued for about 25 minutes before they opened at 18.45 for the evening and managed to get seated in the gorgeous glass framed attic.
• Pink Mamma @ 20bis, Rue de Douai, 75009 Paris
PNY serves incredible burgers for omnivores, vegetarians and even vegans. You can enjoy one of their hearty burgers in a homemade bun (insanely good btw) on their front porch and watch people walk by. The burgers are really good but not the most filling so if you’re really hungry I would recommend going for fries as well. The vegan burger they serve is supposedly amazing. However, seeing that it was 16€ we both opted for another one on the menu.
• Paris New York Marais @ 1 Rue Perrée, 75003 Paris
Odette is a cute bakery near Notre Dame and offers the most incredible pastries. We settled for a vanilla and chocolate puff pastry and were both massively impressed by how delicious and fluffy it was. Would definitely recommend the chocolate one!
• Odette, 77 Rue Galande, 75005 Paris
Another must-visit in Paris, according to Sarah, is Stohrer. Stohrer is a traditional French patisserie since 1730 that offers a broad selection of pastries. Among are delicious Pain de Chocolat, Croissants and Eclairs. They have an absolutely beautiful shop and gorgeous pastries to fuel you with sugar after a long day of exploring.
• Stohrer, 51 Rue Montorgueil, 75002 Paris
The classic! If you like sweet treats and want to try the best Macarons in town, you certainly cannot miss out on Ladurée. They have various shops scattered around the city and will always cater to your needs if you feel like treating yourself. My friend says vanilla is the best but I’d suggest you simply try one.
CAFÈ DE FLORE
Café de Flore probably is one of the most known cafés in town. If you do not mind spending 7,50 on a coffee it certainly is worth a try, though. They have incredibly beautiful tables and their sitting area is the perfect spot for people watching Paris.
When it comes to coffee, however, you can sit down in just about any of their beautiful Parisian coffee shops and enjoy a warm drink or wine in the afternoon. It is always an absolutely wonderful activity to indulge in and enjoy the city at its core.
• Café de Flore, 172 Boulevard Saint-Germain, 75006 Paris
