Another cold day in Paris on the hunt for a brunch spot to warm us up lead to this cute café that’s been on my mind ever since I saw the name, “La chambre aux oiseaux” (the bird room). The interior takes you to a cozy vintage living room space that oozes comfort and calm. I was even more pleasantly surprised by the food that was not greasy brunch food (which I do love) but delicious healthier food that was both inviting and fulfilling. A brunch spot that shouldn’t be missed if you’re by the Canal Saint-Martin!

On a cold day in the Marais, Café Ineko surprisingly welcomed me in for a latté. I say, “surprisingly” because normally, they would be jam-packed, had it not been for the snow. Nevertheless, I could hear for myself from all the compliments by customers, that this place knows it stuff when it comes to vegan food! So for all you vegans and even us non-vegans just looking for a nice setting and a café, a stop by here is a must!

This weekend, I ventured into unknown territory: the 20th arrondissement of Paris. Long behold, beside what I thought was the entrance to Père Lachaise (but wasn’t!), my eyes caught sight of this adorable pretty in pink café/salon de thé that became our blessing in disguise! Marie Denise is a cute little joint where you can drink some tea like granny and enjoy the peaceful surroundings.

I have a Friday night “date night” ritual with my boyfriend and normally it involves me choosing a restaurant from my list and going there for dinner. This time, it was my boyfriend who wanted to choose a place and so I welcomed that thought with open arms and an empty stomach! He did some digging through LaFourchette (yes, this place is on it = they take reservations!) and chose a restaurant that was small, intimate but in an area that I love (which is currently the 2ème) and Bonpot is what he found! It’s very small so reservations are a must! But it’s a really cute place with great Korean food that you can enjoy in a comfortable setting.

Whenever it’s possible, especially during school vacation, I try my best to have lunch with boyfriend who works in the fancy 8ème (just like me) off of the Champs-Elysées. Finding places to eat around here can be tricky consider our budgets aren’t very high. But there are some places like Motto Burger that can be accesible to smaller budgets and delivers great fusion flavours of France and Japan that will make your stomach sing!

My boyfriend is pretty happy that I’m putting his recommendation of Krua Thai on The List… but why? Because it’s small but intimate, family-run (=friendly) and the food is great (no lining up included!). I love trying to find hidden gems like this and I hope you will get a chance to enjoy it too!

Saturday morning, the sun is [surprisingly] shining, the fall wind is in the air… brunch at Marcel awaits! It’s a cozy, industrial chic restaurant that does everything but my main purpose today was to try their brunch. Come here at any time during the day (you can make reservations here!) and their fait maison (homemade) approach is unlikely to disappoint.
